Portstewart Golf Club
The Strand Course at Portstewart is a result of over a century of developments, with golf having been played on the links since 1889. Major work began on the land in the 1980s, and the Portstewart gem in its current incarnation was completed by Des Giffin in 1992. Due to host the 2017 Irish Open in early July, Portstewart is Irish championship links at its very best.

Howling winds and hail on the first tee, but soon calmed down and reasonable weather overall. Murderous in the rough, I have played on better greens but they were fine. Clubhouse if great and staff were excellent.
