10. Royal Portrush

Portrush, County Antrim

In 2019 we will see the Open return to Royal Portrush and Northern Ireland for the first time since 1951. It should be spectacular and will certainly be well supported. This will be the biggest sporting event ever hosted by Northern Ireland.

The Harry Colt-designed Dunluce Links has recently been modernised by Mackenzie Ebert, with two new holes in the dunes replacing the existing 17th and 18th.
