This is a fantastic golf course. Great layout and staff was extremely friendly. They are preparing to host the British Open so it was fun to see the plans on a board in the clubhouse. They also have Darren Clarke's Claret jug on display in the case which you don't see every day when you play golf.

Loved the course - a classic design. Condition was good apart the greens which had been heavily sanded so not receptive and a pain to putt on. Was somewhat surprised and disappointed to see a 6 ball of Americans together with caddies each ahead of us (quite a sight to see so many people on a green) which then caused... More

My grandson who was visiting from Iowa wanted his picture taken here. Even though we weren't going to play or shop, the staff accommodated our needs and pointed out the best vantage points.

It felt good to be in the Irish outdoors.Some tricky shots required but we battled through. The big breakfast we devoured at 8am stood us in good stead.Well done all .

I cannot wait to return to Royal Portrush. We stayed directly across the street, so had an easy trip to the course in the morning. Everyone, from the pro shop to the starter to the caddies were very welcoming. The nicest person of all was Hugh the bartender, who found my two week old iPhone after I dropped it on... More

This has to be one of the best golf courses on the planet. Great pro shop. Nice opening home to ease you in but then the questions start to be asked. Superb greens. Brilliant design. So many questions asked. Check out the 13th green. You play on to the green and if not accurate watch your ball slide away into... More

Fabulous course with stunning views not for the faint hearted. Forget about eating here, extremely disappointing I think the chef got the sugar and the salt mixed up. What started off as an amazing day turned to disappointment with the food

My sons arranged a round of golf with the club pro Mr. Gary McNeill as a Christmas present. What an inspired choice of gift. The course is sensational, the views stunning and the staff superb. Gary is excellent company and was very polite to me, a high handicap golfer. His patience was a delight. Overall I believe this to be... More

Courteous pro staff, wonderful views, very very tricky greens, I wished I'd taken a buggy as some walks between holes were steep.
