Our Thoughts

    If Flying into Belfast City Airport it’s a 45 min drive down to the coast. The course has signs when approaching but it’s hard to miss.

    Club is well set up for receiving visitors and you will be welcomed and directed easily, a true Irish Welcome that many copy but few can pull off.

    One of the world top courses. Exceptional design and views make this a must-have on anyone’s bucket list. It’s hard to find the words to describe how great this golf course is and has gone to the top of my playlist!

  • Stuffiness Icon


    Royal County Down is a very traditional course so it has reasonably high standards of dress and behavior but that doesn’t make it stuffy, just traditional.

    Final Thoughts

    Royal County Down is one of those courses you need to get to grips with early and be prepared to make some tough shots. It ranks up there in level of difficulty with Carnoustie, Turnberry and Muirfield. Not for the faint-hearted. This is really important if you go there as a high handicap golfer you will struggle – but still go and enjoy it for what it is, an exceptional golf course.
