Balmoral Golf Club in South Belfast, Co. Antrim saw varied use during World War Two. The site housed a prisoner of war camp, a gun battery, and an air raid shelter.
A large area to the right of the 3rd Fairway was a prisoner of war camp. This ground is now part of Taughmonagh Estate.
On the 13th Fairway, stood an air raid shelter for use by servicemen operating the nearby anti-aircraft gun battery. During The Docks Raid of the Belfast Blitz on 7th-8th April 1941, a gunner died here as a shell misfired.
Despite the ongoing war, life went on at the club. Celebrities including boxing heavyweight Joe Louis and fighter pilot Douglas Bader enjoyed a round of golf. Locals continued to obtain golf balls by trading cigarettes with the prisoners of war.
