Welcome to the official website of The Royal Belfast Golf Club, the oldest golf club in Ireland.
When the Club was founded on 9 November 1881 it marked the birth of the game of golf in Ireland and the Club became one of only nine founder member clubs of the Golfing Union of Ireland.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to The Royal Belfast Golf Club. The golf course at Craigavad was originally designed by perhaps the greatest golf course architect ever, Harry Colt.
The layout consists of two loops, the first an outer clockwise circuit, finishing at our signature hole the par three 11th, the homeward inner loop in contrast, anti-clockwise.
I hope that Royal Belfast will leave a lasting impression on you and that you will return again.
