The Royal County Down Golf Club


One of the most difficult courses anywhere

It is arguably the finest links golf course. Its history, dating to the 19th century, mixes with dramatic dunes in the shadows of the Mourne Mountains, making it tough to beat. It is considered one of the most difficult courses anywhere, and is the host of the 2007 Walker Cup.
The course was originally established in 1888 as the railway came to Newcastle and is still labeled as an Old Tom Morris design. However, massive rerouting and rebuilding through the 1920s led to a course that’s been largely unchanged for several decades. One big difference is the brand-new 16th hole, built just a few years back.
