Located on the same stretch of Causeway Coast as the world-renowned links of Royal Portrush, the Portstewart Golf Club is one of the few in Ireland to boast three 18 hole golf courses – the Old, the Riverside, and the Strand. However, it is the Championship Strand Course that is the jewel in the crown. Originally founded in 1894, this superb layout received a substantial makeover in 1986 with seven new stunning holes through towering dunes and fabulous and natural links land.
Portstewart was one of the final contenders as the host of the British Open in 1951 that was finally staged at Royal Portrush. The Irish Open played here in 2017 added to its fame. It is a true test of links golf with elevated tees and rolling valleys which are combined with spectacular views of the Donegal Hills, Atlantic Ocean and the River Bann.
