Golf Courses in County Antrim
County Antrim provides some stunning golf courses. Situated in the north east of Northern Ireland, County Antrim extends north from Lisburn, taking in the city of Belfast before the coastal boundary sweeps round Belfast Lough, Larne and Ballycastle on its way to Portrush. Close to Bushmills on the Antrim coast, some say the volcanic basalt columns of the Giant’s Causeway is where the legendary warrior Finn McCool once walked across to Scotland to joust with his Scottish counterpart in years long gone by.
The main golf club in County Antrim is undoubtedly Royal Portrush, where members play over two fantastic championship 18-hole links courses, the world famous Dunluce and the much underrated valley. Most golfers will know that Graeme McDowell, US Open winner in 2010, played his amateur golf at Portrush but many won’t know he was actually a member of Rathmore GC and not the Royal club. The Belvoir and Galgorm are two maginificent courses you just have to check out when visiting County Antrim!
