Overview of Vision 2030
When the original Golf Club was formed in May 1888, it was known as The County Club. It later became the Royal County Club in 1892 when H.R.H. The Duke of York was its patron and then Royal Portrush Golf Club, three years later with H.R.H. The Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII) as patron.
It was here that the Irish Open Amateur Championship was inaugurated in 1892 and then the Irish Professional Championship in 1907. In 1895, Portrush was the first links outside of England to host the British Ladies Championship which was won by Lady Margaret Scott. The Championship was played here for the ninth time in 2011 and was won by Miss Lauren Taylor from Woburn Golf Club.
