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.
World class facilities Some of the best facilities you will find – great driving range and chipping area with a practice green right next to the first tee, exactly where it should be! Greens a true reflection of the course’s greens.
Separate members and visitors areas, with the visitor's area relaxed and usable with golf attire. If you're invited into the member's lounge you will require jacket and tie. Welcome to Club House was again exceptional with a genuine interest in your golf.
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!
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.
Every day of the week if I could? Cannot say better than that!
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.
