ArdGlass Golf Course, Co. Down, Ireland

ArdGlass Ardglass, County Down

Venturing forth into the wind to subdue the first four holes at Ardglass is one of golf's most formidable missions. Scrambling up the ridge of a rocky cliff, with the crashing surf of the Irish Sea filling the ears, it seems fitting that your progress should be covered by a battery of cannons, poised in front of Ardglass Castle, and pointed directly at the first green. For this is golf's version of a military siege, with shots rejected by all manner of rock formations, earth embankments and stone walls. So what if the rest of the course can't keep up to the spectacular drama of the opening quartet (though the three new holes added by David Jones - nine through eleven - strengthen the course considerably). If it did, you might never reach the nineteenth hole, with its promise of a pint in one of the most intriguing clubhouses anywhere.
