Golf fans across the world can now walk in the footsteps of Rory McIlroy
Play a round of golf on the course/practice facility that the world’s number one golfer designed and built himself.
The world class championship golf facility was purpose built by Rory to enable him to replicate virtually every shot required to win each of the four Major Golf Championships – and with only the US Masters still to win, it has obviously paid dividends for the 25 year old star from Holywood, County Down.
The facility, situated in the grounds of Robinhall House, is still used occasionally by McIlroy to practice when he’s in Northern Ireland. Now golf enthusiasts can also have full use of this exclusive golf facility during their visit – with a percentage of proceeds going towards The Rory Foundation which was set up by the golfer himself to support children’s charities around the world.
Robinhall House is a luxurious 14-acre gated private estate on the outskirts of Belfast that was home to McIlroy from 2009 to 2013, during which time he became the world’s number one golfer, winning the US Open and US PGA Championship on the way.
The two-hour golf package includes a practice session on the very same putting green and short game area where Rory honed his skills, followed by nine holes on the actual golf facility which was modelled on some of the world’s top golf courses with holes based on Augusta, St Andrew’s, Pebble Beach and Congressional (where McIlroy won his first major championship).
From the famous 'roadhole bunker' on the 17th hole at St Andrew’s to the undulating bent grass greens of Augusta National, visitors can enjoy their very own ‘major’ golfing experiences for just £95 per adult and £45 per child (under 14), with gift vouchers available.
Guests will receive a personalised certificate to verify that they’ve played what was once Rory McIlroy’s own private golf course.
Visitors to the facility will also have a chance to explore other features of the Robinhall House estate, including its award-winning gardens with manicured lawns and meandering illuminated walkways, a freshwater lake which has been stocked with approximately 1,200 local Brown and Dollaghan Trout, a flood-lit tennis court, outdoor hot tub, sun terrace and separate BBQ area.
Other services are available on request including a tour of the house and grounds, champagne reception and canapes, and professional golf tuition.
