If you are a fan of golf visiting the Isle of Man and are staying in the North of the Island then Ramsey Golf club, established in 1891 and the first formal golf club on the Isle of Man, may well be worth a trip.
The current 18 hole course was designed in 1929 and can be found at the foot of Glen Auldyn. It has spectacular views out over the mountains and was listed by Golf Monthly as one of the UK "100 Hidden Gems" in 2011. The course itself has surprising challenges, including the Leighney river which runs through the course.
In addition to the course the clubhouse offers a range of meals, wines and locally brewed ales. It also has a pro shop and Andrew Dyson, PGA Professional offers lessons.
While in Ramsey it is also worth checking out some of the local sights, often missed by visitors who stay around the capital of Douglas. These include the Millennium Way footpath for walkers, and Mooragh Park with its water park, boating lake, cafes and children's play park.
After a day golfing you could even make time for a game of ten-pin bowling with the family which opened on the site of the old swimming pool in 2010.
