Royal Portrush Golf Club: Home to The Open 2019

A Prestigious Northern Irish Golf Course

On the North Coast of Northern Ireland is Royal Portrush Golf Club.  It’s situated along some of the most dramatic natural beauty in the world.  Stunning Northern Irish landscapes dramatically cut into the sea, with wondrous rock formations forming the border.

The two courses at Portrush are considered some of the best in the world.  On countless lists, the Dunluce Course ranks among the greatest on Earth.  When looking at links courses alone, it’s hard to find a finer place to play a round.

Not only do the impossibly beautiful surroundings add to the course, but the course itself is a true masterpiece.  Golf course architect Harry Colt masterfully crafted the course.  He used the natural contours of the dunes and small ridges to create a constantly challenging course.  With every time there is a change in direction or elevation, the unpredictable coastal wind will change too, challenging even the most seasoned players.

Royal Portrush hosted The Open in 1951.  That year, Max Faulkner won the championship, after narrowly beating Argentinian Antonio Cerda.

Whether you’re visiting Royal Portrush to test your skills on one of the finest courses, or to witness great players put on a show during The Open 2019 you’re certain to have a wonderful time at the prestigious golf club.
