A hidden gem on the North coast. 20 minutes from Royal Portrush as the crow flies, spectacular views amazing holes, that meander through towering dunes, The par 3 forth hole 200 yards with a railway line on the right and a brook on the left both OOB can play anything from a nine iron to driver depending on the wind. At 6780 yards par 73 a great test of golf and shotmaking…

This is my home course so probably a little biased but it’s got to be one of the best value for money courses around. Fantastic tournament condition greens. Looking for somewhere to play in Belfast then give this club a try.

One of the loveliest courses I have played in my life. Being greeted by the members and sent out before them to accelerate my game was nice in order to catch my plane. The first nine holes are the best of the best. Combine those with the second nine of Tralee. Perfect.

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.
