DAY 2

Portstewart Golf Club, Strand Links

‘God’s Own Country’… three words sure to inspire the imagination of any golfer when they discover that’s what awaits them at Portstewart.

When the club identified the need for nine new holes in the 1980s, this run of dunes was used to create the most dramatic opening nine holes in golf… and what many consider to be the best opening hole in Ireland.

From the tee the views stretch over the sea to Inishowen, while Mussenden Temple sits on the cliff tops in the distance.

These opening nine holes tumble through violent dunes but, despite their size, you can see what lies ahead, thanks to the many high tees.

The back nine start off on the back side of these big dunes but then calm down for the final stretch.

DAY 3

Castle Rock Golf Club, Mussenden Links

Alongside Royal Portrush and Portstewart, Castlerock makes up the perfect triumvirate on this northern stretch of coastline. What stands out in Castlerock’s favour is the variety of its links holes, thanks to the ever-changing size and shape of the dunes. Actor Michael Douglas said of Castlerock: “this course is pure heaven”.

Holes switch from low and bumpy to deep and curvaceous. A burn runs across some holes but Castlerock’s serious drama starts on the 7th, where the bigger dunes come in to play. Bump-and-run is always a wise approach (but for the burn) and you’ll need a very sharp short game to take on the many challenges around greens.

DAY 4

Royal Portrush Golf Club, Dunluce Links

Finish your trip in style at the home of the 2019 Open Championship, Royal Portrush, the allure of this Harry Colt classic grows by the day. The rhythm of the holes works beautifully, as the opening holes take you steadily out towards the ocean and the par four 5th. Named White Rocks, the dogleg masterpiece where everything, including the views, is on show from the raised tee and you are challenged to bite off as much as you can chew.

Royal Portrush presents a steady learning curve of how holes break and slide through natural channels, how the smallish greens sit neatly – often deceptively – into the dunes, and how fairway position means everything if you are to optimise your chances of getting close to the pin

DAY 5

Your luxury coach takes you from your hotel to your departure airport.
