Portstewart’s best hole, the lengthy par-four first, is the same as ever. Playing downhill from a high tee overlooking both the beach and the town, this dogleg-right turns smoothly toward a green that sits in the sheltering embrace of the dunes. It remains one of the most rousing openers in golf.

Cannot imagine a more beautiful course! While places like Old Head and Royal Portrush grab all the headlines, this “sleeper” course is among the most beautiful in the world. Portstewart Golf Club is challenging, but fair, and not too steeply priced.
