Rathmore Golf Club
The Rathmore ' valley ' course lies between the East Strand and the Dunluce golf course in Portrush. As its name suggests, the course is situated between the huge sand hills immediately along the Atlantic shore and the higher ground on which the Dunluce course is laid out. The valley has more than its fair share of the humps, hollows and undulations to be found on any links worthy of the name.
The valley course is a 6,304-yard, par 70 and is a very fine test of links golf. The two feature holes on the card are played back-to-back on the front nine and they are situated at the furthest point from the clubhouse. They epitomise all that is good about golf at Portrush. The 336-yard, short par four, 5th hole is played from an elevated tee in the sand hills to a green framed by towering dunes and protected on three sides by menacing bunkers. The 237-yard, par three, 6th hole is then played slightly uphill and semi-blind to a green hidden by natural mounding.
