Portstewart Golf Club
My excitement levels start to peak as we pull into the car park at Portstewart and I know exactly why as I have played this course before. Home to the 2017 Irish Open and I bet when every professional golfer walked on to the first tee for the first time just said wow, it is such an impressive view it’s hard not to be taken in.
With the ocean on your right and the fairway some 60-feet below you it certainly is one of the best opening holes anywhere on the planet. The course then starts to move through the dunes with the second hole played from an elevated tee and from the fairway you play up to a very thin raised green that sits in between two dunes, which again gives you another elevated tee shot for the first of the par 3s on the front nine.
