Royal County Down

Founded: 1889
Type: Links Course
Par: 71 
Length: 7,037 Yards

Voted No.1 golf course in the world by Golf Digest, Royal County Down Golf Club was founded in 1889. The club has 36-holes; the Championship Course measuring 7,037 yards Par 71 with a standard scratch of 75 from the blue tees and the somewhat shorter Annesley Links at 4,708 yards Par-66.

The Championship course is a links course that is renowned worldwide as one of the finest links tests in the world. Host to the Irish Open in 2015 won by Soren Kjeldsen, the first nine holes are ranked by many as the finest opening nine anywhere. The constantly undulating layout will challenge every part of your game with “tightish” fairways, many grassy-topped pot bunkers and tricky greens – every hole is a classic links test.
