The Top 10 Royal Courses in the UK and Ireland

Courtesy of our friends at Leadingcourses.com

Here’s a great piece from our good friends over at Leadingcourses.com on Royal courses. Enjoy!

It’s interesting to see how many golf clubs throughout the world have the ‘Royal’ designation. How a sportsclub and a golf club in particular can become Royal differs per country, but in general the Royal status is appointed by the crown. To summarize how you can become a ‘royal’ golf club:

The golf club must be of eminence

With a long standing and secure financial position,

The golf club needs to exist for a long time (varying from 50 to 100 years),

Should refrain from dissemination of sensitive political beliefs

And a few royals as a member or as a patron will also help

In this blogpost we highlight the best royal golf courses in the United Kingdom and Ireland. In a next blogpost we will highlight the best royal golf courses in Continental Europe.
