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.

After playing Royal County Down in the morning, we drove 30 minutes to play Ardglass and we very much enjoyed it. The green fee is not so expensive, and the club not so fancy, but it was an excellent experience. They were doing some work on the tee boxes, but my guess is that they will be outstanding. The first hole is very unique with an uphill shot and a tee box right in front of the Ardglass castle. The green of this par 4 is quite unique inside a natural arena. The next 4 play by the water are of high quality but the true Arglass experience reached its peak when we made the turn. The 10th hole is a downhill par 3 (175 yards) with a magnificent view of the bay and a strong wind. Hit a full 3 wood to barely reach the green because of the wind. Then the par 5 11th is one of the best holes we played on this trip, longing the bay on the right and at the bottom of the cliff on the left side, a pure beauty. The 12th is another great hole by the water, always challenging with the strong wind! The closing hole offers a great view of the castle from up top and was a great view to conclude our amazing Northern Ireland golfing experience!
