Royal Belfast Golf Club is the oldest and most challenging in Ireland

Founded in 1881, Royal Belfast Golf Club lays claim to the title of the oldest golf course in Ireland. The present course dates back to 1925, when responsibility for the course design and layout at the present location was given to H.S. Colt, the eminent English course architect of the day. With the assistance of Walker Cup player W.A. Murray, Colt produced a course of great charm which provides a true test of golfing skill and enjoys one of the most scenic settings of any in these islands with its unrivalled views of Belfast Lough and the Antrim plateau beyond. 

The course remains much the same today as it was then, a tribute to the enduring excellence of its original design, always meticulously maintained with impeccable greens and groves of rhododendrons and gorse providing a colourful backdrop in spring. Visiting players are always warmly welcome to enjoy a real slice of history.
