Royal County Down is one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland, with traditions dating back for more than one hundred years. Situated in Newcastle, where in the immortal words of Percy French, "The Mountains of Mourne sweep down to the sea", Royal County Down is not only a fine test of golf but has accompanying scenery that is simply spellbinding.

I was looking forward to playing this course for months but with the the previous month of heavy rain, snow and sleet I was expecting the worst, needless to say I should not have worried as the course was in immaculate shape. no temporary greens or placing with lovely lush fairways and firm receptive greens that were all running quick and true.
Royal County down has everything from the marvelous scenery of the mountains of mourne sweeping down to the sea in full view on nearly all holes. The course has great mix of holes with doglegs left and right, varying lenght par 4's and par 3's and it will definitely test your shot making skills.

I really enjoyed the round and cant wait to get back. The front nine has a number of blind tee shots with long carries that I would play differently on my next visit. While the Tee shots carries are not an issue for most they did prove difficult for the lady in our group who gave up and walked to the fairway on a few holes to play her first shot.
