Despite a population of less than 2 million, Northern Ireland has in recent years dominated golf worldwide. Rory McIlroy, Darren Clarke and Greame McDowell all products of the Irish golfing school have gone on to win 6 majors, sit at the top of the world rankings and captain the European Ryder Cup team collectively.
When you look at the golf courses on offer in Ireland, it’s easy to see why. The country offers a number of world-class resorts and courses worthy of featuring in the World’s Top 100 lists. Royal County Down and Royal Portrush are arguably the standout options, but with 100 courses to choose from there are plenty more outstanding venues on offer.
