Portsalon Golf Club was one of the founder members of the Golfing Union of Ireland, the oldest golfing union in the world. Initially designed by Charles Thompson of Portrush, the layout of the club has undergone significant changes over the years, particularly in 2000 under the guidance of Pat Ruddy.

The course is ranked as one of the top 25 courses in Ireland by Golf Digest, and its progress continues with the involvement of Paul McGinley, the 2014 Ryder Cup captain, in further enhancements.

Situated beneath the majestic Knockalla mountains and stretching alongside the stunning Ballymastocker beach, the course offers a true challenge for links golf enthusiasts.
