A recent question was put to Rory McIlroy about his favorite golf course in Northern Ireland – he chose Ardglass.
When following the signs to Ardglass, we first think we have taken a wrong turn as we have arrived at a medieval castle. But we have come to the right place. Ardglass has the oldest clubhouse in the world, housed in an old castle with parts of the building dating back to the 13th century. The club had its beginnings in 1896 in one of the stables, and soon rented the building and the land in front to lay out an 8-hole golf course. The course was gradually expanded and reached its current 18-hole layout in the 1990s.
