Golf at Royal Portrush goes back to 1888, when it emerged as the first of a number of historic clubs along the River Bann, along with Portsteward and Castelrock. The club was attracting the Irish Professional and Amateur Championships by 1900, and tournaments continue to be played on the premier site for competitions in Northern Ireland. Royal Portrush has been particularly amenable to women's golf, being the first club outside Britain to host the British Ladies Amateur Championship (an honor it has enjoyed seven more times). Among men's events, the Amateur Championship returned in 1960, when native Joe Carr won, and in 1993, when Iain Pyman won; and in 1951 Max Faulkner won the Open Championship here. The standout hole on the Dunluce Links is undoubtedly the 14th, the so-called Calamity Corner, known as one of the world's finest short holes for the accuracy required to make the carry to the diminutive target.

Awesome!!! True links course with facinating views. Course condition was at it's best. I played there before they changed 17&18.

Looking forward the Open being played here. The 2 new holes were nearly open when we played and they make a great addition to the course. Makes for an interesting finish with the new layout.

We started our NI-Scotland-Ireland golf trip by playing the great Royal Portrush. The host of the 2019 Open is currently getting a makeover which will highly improved the course as holes 17 & 18 will be replaced by the new 6th and 7th that, from what we saw (thanks for my drone!) look top class. Even though, I was a bit disappointed by the opening (and still closing) holes, as well as one or two holes in the valley, I very much enjoyed the rest of the course. Of course, holes 5 and 13 offer amazing views of the Northern Ireland coast, but they make you feel the joy of a raw links experience. The colors were stunning, the wind was screaming and the journey was rightly underway! One of the very interesting holes was the par 3 14th, uphill 202 yards with the wind forcing you to hit a full 3-wood or you'll have to beg for a mulligan! Overall, it was a great experience, but I'd say that the makeover will make it earn its spot in the top 100 list.
