Golf Course Reviews for Royal Portrush Golf Club
as a warm up to its big brother this is a great course, no need to smash drivers, play smart, hit irons, let them run and score low. Real friendly people

In my opinion they have ruined this course. It used to be a difficult course, but a fair course and rewarded good shots. With the British Open coming to the big course in 2019, they took two holes from the Valley Course and introduced three new holes, none of which add to the course. I, being a pensioner of 72 years struggled to get up to the elevated tees, which at least 12 holes now possess and you can't hire a buggy, maybe I won't be back!

Royal Portrush Dunce links are the famous ones. This course is right by the side of it so in many ways presents similar challenges. Maintained to the same high standards but accessible to the high handicapper. You can use the practice facilities at the main clubhouse with complimentary range balls.

They have altered this Valley course slightly, as they have lost two holes to the Dunluce Links for the 2019 (British ) Open and the present 16th is a par 5 and a better hole, in my opinion, than the old 17th which it replaces. On the downside they have lost the old 18th, par 3, but maybe after 2019, they will restore it!
