The course had been newly recreated by Harry Colt in 1932 on the site of the previous 18-hole circuit, which had been laid out in 1888 by Old Tom Morris. The stunning Dunluce course, as the championship course is named, is routed through rugged links land and provides some of the most awe-inspiring scenery to be found in Ireland.
Wind direction varies almost constantly thanks to the layout, which consists of a single loop that meanders its way through sand dunes and along clifftops, with views of the sea and coastline often framing holes.
