About Royal County Down Golf Club

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 narrowest ribbons of fairways thread their way through as impressive a set of sand dunes as could be imagined. The fairways are surrounded by purple heather and golden gorse, so beautiful to look at but so punishing for any who may stray from the prescribed path. 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. This is a true test of any player’s command of the traditional bump and run, the preferred way to play any links.

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.

With regards to the championship course it certainly lives up to its billing as arguably the best golf course on British & Irish soil and one that vies for the title of being the greatest in the world. I don’t quite put it into that lofty bracket but it is unquestionably superb and rightly celebrated. The canvas at County Down is perfect for golf and it paints the most c…

When you come to Royal County Down make sure you are prepared for it. I've played 500+ courses now and I think the front nine at RCD is probably the best I have seen. The massive dune landscape, the tight fairways, the contrasting two-way mowed fairways and the treacherous greens are amazing true and fast. The driving range, where they shuttle you from the clubhouse is …

Gehört nicht umsonst in allen Rankings zu den Top Plätzen auf der Welt. Das Mekka für Golf Puristen. Caddys sind zu empfehlen. Höhere Handicapper werden auf diesem Platz wohl nicht viel Freude haben, denn es gibt viele "blinde" Löcher und der Wind ist auch immer dabei. Ein einmaliges Golferlebnis in diesen riesigen Dünen ist es allemal. Kann auch von Dublin in 1 1/2 Stund…
