Royal County Down GC Is een van de mooiste links die ik gelopen heb, super baan in een mooi gebied. Vanaf hole 1 wordt je weg gestart en gelijk aan beide zijde fairway hoge duinen. Zeer snelle greens. RCD zit in het rijtje Nairn, DunDonald, Waterville, Ballyliffin, Dooks.
The Championship Links at Royal County Down is located in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful links settings in the Murlough Nature Reserve. Against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne, the links stretches along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zigzagging back and forth to provide a different vista from virtually every hole. The course is characterized by narrow fairways which are surrounded by purple heather and golden gorse and the ‘bearded’ bunkers are world famous and feature overhanging lips of marram, red fescue and heather. The greens are fast and many are domed, rejecting any shot lacking conviction.
The Annesley Links at Royal County Down shares the same magnificent setting as the Championship Links and is full of character. Although much shorter than the Championship Links, The Annesley Links is still a very testing golf course, with magnificent views of sea, mountains and duneland.
