Practical Information

What to Wear


In Northern Ireland, the weather forecast can often be all four seasons in a single day, so it’s always advisable to pack your waterproofs. Smart casual is the accepted uniform so leave the jeans and trainers behind. More traditional clubs may request a jacket and tie when using the dining room so it’s a good idea to check with the
club in advance.


Soft Spikes & Handicap Certificates


Many golf clubs now have a soft spikes only policy, so please check ahead of time. With handicap certificates now the accepted norm, be sure to bring your club certificate with you.


Green Fees

Most clubs offer group rates which include green fees and club house catering. Clubs may offer concesson rates for students, juveniles and seniors. Make your green fee reservations directly with the golf club.

 

Trollies & Caddies


Trollies are commonly used on our courses and are inexpensive to hire from most clubs. You can also book a caddy at some of our more popular championship courses. Simply make arrangements beforehand. ‘Most clubs will also have a stock of battery operated trollies and the larger clubs will have a limited number of caddy cars for hire.

 

Currency & Credit Cards


Sterling is the currency used in Northern Ireland. While most shops, hotels and restaurants will accept most major credit cards, not all small businesses do, so it’s a good idea to carry some cash with you to cover these expenses. Euro is accepted in selected areas, generally border regions and larger cities.
