Tourism Northern Ireland - Ultimate Round

18 of the most iconic and significant golf holes in the country, proving that Northern Ireland really is Made for Golf.

The Ultimate Round showcases some of the finest and most formidable golf holes in the world. Featuring top-ten regulars like 'Calamity' at Royal Portrush and the lesser-known, but equally spectacular, second at Cairndhu. We presented 18 of the best holes in the country - with help from local golfers, famous faces and the players that know them best.

Barry McGuigan, Michael Hoey and even Rory McIlroy's cousin Fergus introduce holes that they believe deserve a place in the Ultimate Round, including pristine parkland greens, difficult drives and arguably the finest opening hole in the world.

We released 6 episodes in time for The Irish Open 2015, which were shared across social media and broadcast around the world - starting conversations about our famous landscape and ultimately showcasing Northern Ireland as a golfing destination.
