Scrabo 1st hole makes top 100 best holes in Ireland!

Don’t expect manicured fairways or painstakingly designed golf holes: that’s not what Scrabo is about. As a members’ club, blood, sweat and tears went into creating the course and providing natural, brilliant and fun golf. Yes, it may be short by today’s standards, but you have to avoid that gorse and be very accurate with your approach play to score well....
Not surprisingly, the wind can wreak havoc up here, but you’ll also have many sensational tee shots as well as views along Strangford Lough and across to Scotland. The new clubhouse makes the most of those views, too. And then there’s Scrabo Tower, standing tall above the 1st green and visible for much of the round.
Anyone considering golf around Belfast ... or Royal County Down should add Scrabo to the itinerary.
