Par 70, yardage 6,306. Residing on the shores of the Belfast Lough, Royal Belfast has hosted a number of championship events, including the Ulster Professional Championship (won by Darren Clarke), the Irish Cup Finals, the Irish Close Championship, the Ulster Ladies Championship and the Irish Ladies Championship. It is one of only four Irish golf clubs with a 'Royal' prefix and was founded in November 1881, making it Ireland's oldest club. Harry Colt's original design has barely been touched, although Donald Steel did make some slight renovations in 1988. Both nines provide for an exhilarating round, with the short par-three 4th hole the most memorable.
