Rory McIlroy’s childhood home up for sale

Four-time major winner Rory McIlroy’s childhood home has gone up for sale – and it even has its own golf course.

The Northern Irishman honed his golfing talent at a young age in the house in Holywood, Belfast – and it’s easy to see why.

The four-bed semi-detached property has a mini golf course come putting green and a hitting studio in the garage.

McIlroy’s former residence is also only a 20-minute walk from his home club, Holywood Golf Club.

As well as all the mod cons the spacious looking house boasts views of the Belfast Lough from the rear.

The house is listed for around £240,000.

Estate agent John Minnis told the Belfast Telegraph: “Fabulous opportunity to purchase this beautifully presented red brick semi-detached property which is the former family home of world class golfer Rory McIlroy.

“This was the home he was brought up in. If you have seen the pictures of him chipping balls into the washing machine, that was in this house.”

The 28-year-old has been plagued with injuries in 2017 and hasn’t won a single tournament.

McIlroy, ranked six in the world, announced he would be taking a winter break in a bid to come back fighting fit in 2018.
