Golfers and visitors from all over the world are assured of a warm and friendly welcome at Balmoral Golf Club. It is one of Northern Ireland's top parkland courses situated in the leafy suburbs of South Belfast and is easily accessed from road, rail or air. The area has a comprehensive range of hotel and B & B accommodation, which is within 3 miles of Belfast City centre, a vibrant, lively city renowned for shopping and exciting night life.
Established in 1914, the course at Balmoral offers a stern test to golfers of all playing standards over its 6,276 yards of mature parkland, situated less than three miles from Belfast city centre. Whilst only a Par 69 the Standard Scratch of 70 gives testament to the challenge the course offers.
Soft undulating fairways lined by thousands of mature trees are a prominent feature forcing players to consider their playing strategy and plan the accuracy of their shots from tee to green. Visitors will experience this in their round as early as the first hole, considered by many as one of the most demanding opening holes in the Greater Belfast area measuring some 452 yards and a hole where many are happy to accept a bogie five at this tough opening hole.
The Club has a unique history in Irish golf being the only golf club in Ireland that can boast an Open Champion and four Ryder Cup Representatives.
