Ardglass, is a dramatic links golf course set on a rugged coastline, with cliff tops and an ancient town as a backdrop. With water playing a prominent part in this course, there are no fewer than 8 holes where the Irish Sea coastline comes into play. Just 25 miles from Royal County Down Golf Club, Ardglass really is a course to savour with some outstanding holes. The 161yd Par 3 2nd, the 480yd Par 5 11th and the 181yd Par 3 12th each require a carry across the coastline and cliffs tops of the Irish Sea and rank among the best holes in Ireland. The view from the elevated 12th tee, with the backdrop of the Irish Sea and Mourne Mountains is breath-taking.
