Royal Belfast is the oldest golf club in Ireland, founded in 1881.
Royal Belfast is the oldest golf club in Ireland, founded in 1881. The current course was designed by Harry Colt and opened in 1925, after the club had to move after WWI. As part of the move the club acquired a Victorian era palace of a clubhouse with magnificent dining rooms and impressive stained glass windows. It’s easy to get the impression that this is a real royal palace, not ‘just’ a golf club.

Remember to wear a suit and tailored shirt with a tie if invited to eat in the formal dining room (if you forgot your suit and tie, there is also a more casual dining room and bar).
