With our world ranked players as well as our world class Golf Courses, Northern Ireland has much to be proud of.
We’ve got some of the best golf clubs in the world, 90 in total, all somehow squeezed into about 5,460sq miles of lush landscape. It means this place really excites golf visitors. And we should all be excited about that. Golf tourism drives money into local businesses and our economy. It generated £52m in 2019 and we can expect to see that continue to grow over the coming years.
