The course hugs the coastline, with no fewer than 8 holes where the Irish Sea coastline comes into play. The Irish Sea is visible from all 18 holes and on a clear day it is possible to see across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Man.
Ardglass really is a course to savour with some outstanding holes. The 161yard, Par 3, 2nd, the 480yard, Par 5, 11th and the 181yard, Par 3, 12th each require a carry across the coastline and cliffs tops of the Irish Sea and rank amoung the best holes in Ireland. The view from the elevated 12th tee, with the backdrop of the Irish Sea and Mourne Mountains is to die for.
