Ardglass Golf Course is an 18 hole links course on the north-eastern coast
of Ireland with some
stunning views and many excellent and 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 at Newcastle.

The new course which incorporates the 3 new holes designed by Mr David
Jones in 1998 has created a trully challenging 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 holes and on a clear day it is possible to see across the Irish Sea to
the Isle of Man.
Ardglass really is a course to savour with some outstanding holes. The
161yd Par 3 2nd, the 480yd Par 5 11th and the 181yd
Par 3 12th each require a carry across the coastline and cliffs
tops of the Irish Sea and rank amoung the best holes in Ireland. The view
from the elevated 12th tee, with the backdrop of the Irish Sea
and Mourne Mountains is to die for.
