Royal County Down Newcastle, County Down, Northern Ireland

Royal County Down Championship Course is consistently rated among the world's top ten courses. Laid out beneath the imperious gaze of the Mountains of Mourne, Royal County Down enjoys a magnificent stage like setting as it stretches out along the shores of Dundrum Bay. As well as being one of the one of the world's most beautiful courses, Royal County Down is also one of the most challenging, with great swathes of heather and gorse lining fairways that tumble beneath vast sand hills, and wild tussocky faced bunkers defending small subtly contoured greens. It is a spectacle to look at and even more thrilling to play.
