Ardglass Golf Course is an 18 hole links course on the North-Eastern coast of Ireland with many stunning views and excellent unique golf holes. The course is just 50 minutes by car from Belfast and only 30 minutes from the world renowned Royal County Down Golf links in Newcastle.

The dramatic layout of the course with several tees and greens overlooking the ocean gives it a really rugged feel. It is part links, part cliff-top in nature.

The course is a true test of golf, particularly on a windy day. The course hugs the coastline, with no fewer than 8 holes where the Irish Sea coastline comes into play. The Irish Sea is visible from all 18 tees and greens and on a clear day it is possible to see across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man.

Ardglass is really a course to savor with some outstanding holes. The 1st from the Medal Tee, the daunting 2nd, the unforgiving 11th and the picturesque Par 3 12th each of which requires a carry across the coastline or cliff tops of the Irish Sea.

These rank among the best, the most photographed and talked about golf holes in Ireland.

"The view from the elevated 12th tee, with the backdrop of the Irish Sea and Mourne Mountains is to die for."

Ardglass are currently upgrading the course under the guidance of Ken Kearney Design as part of a 5 year plan. During the winter of
2019 – 2020 Ardglass have upgraded holes 4, 11 & 18 as part of the on-going development plan.

In 2015 Ardglass Golf Club were awarded a Bronze Award in the Green Tourism Business Scheme. In 2019 they went on to win The IAGTO Award for Golf Experience of the year, Northern Ireland.
