Ever since I played Royal County Down Golf Club for the first time 7 years ago I considered it to be my favorite course I’ve played. But through the years I’ve seen many more golf courses and I was very keen to return to Royal County Down and see if I still love it as much as I did the first time around. As soon as I stepped on the first tee, I was blown away again by the…

A truly spectacular golf course set at the foot of the Mourne Mountains and the sea. A must play.

Royal County Down GC Is een van de mooiste links die ik gelopen heb, super baan in een mooi gebied. Vanaf hole 1 wordt je weg gestart en gelijk aan beide zijde fairway hoge duinen. Zeer snelle greens. RCD zit in het rijtje Nairn, DunDonald, Waterville, Ballyliffin, Dooks.

When you come to Royal County Down make sure you are prepared for it. I've played 500+ courses now and I think the front nine at RCD is probably the best I have seen. The massive dune landscape, the tight fairways, the contrasting two-way mowed fairways and the treacherous greens are amazing true and fast. The driving range, where they shuttle you from the clubhouse is …

I was lucky enough to get a tee time during The Open RCDGC, it was a course that I wanted to play for a while, my expectations were accordingly high. First of all, I did the booking trough the LC site and the experience was very pleasant, no complications, no delays, the staff responded to my mail within an hour, everything worked. When you arrive at the estate, it be…

What a fantastic course! The green staff have worked so hard to get the course in great condition for the Women’s Amateur. The condition of the course was second to none, all the hard work that has gone into the course is amazing and such a credit to all the people who are involved in course maintenance! The course is challenging, but fair and it is a great test of golf f…

Ein absoluter Traumplatz mit einer unglaublichen Kulisse. Die weltweiten Bewertungen sprechen für sich. Ein unvergessliches Golferlebnis. Leider hatten wir kein gutes Wetter, dadurch wurde dieser sehr schwer zu spielenden Golfplatz zu einem absoluten Härtetest.

Uno dei campi più belli giocati: le prime nove buche sono fantastiche! Peccato che alcune delle buche centrali siano un poco meno caratteristiche, ma in complesso un super campo. Non mancano alcune buche cieche tipiche di molti links, ma nel complesso tutto e' armonioso e molto divertente. Sperate solo che non tiri troppo vento, altrimenti le ultime 5-6 buche potrebbero …

Gehört nicht umsonst in allen Rankings zu den Top Plätzen auf der Welt. Das Mekka für Golf Puristen. Caddys sind zu empfehlen. Höhere Handicapper werden auf diesem Platz wohl nicht viel Freude haben, denn es gibt viele "blinde" Löcher und der Wind ist auch immer dabei. Ein einmaliges Golferlebnis in diesen riesigen Dünen ist es allemal. Kann auch von Dublin in 1 1/2 Stund…

El mejor link course que he jugado. Un campo imposible con calles estrechas, muchos tiros ciegos y greenes imposibles por la velocidad. Un campo que casita todo aquello que no sea caer en las calles. Un precioso campo junto al mar donde la influencia del viento puede hacer que jugar al golf sea una experiencia terrible. Es recomendable jugar con caddie si no conoces el ca…

Merece sin lugar a dudas posición altísima en el ranking de campos Europeos. Un puro links, todo muy natural y con gran penalización en los bunkers. Casi todas las partidas con forecaddy, muy recomendable para disfrutar el campo.

With regards to the championship course it certainly lives up to its billing as arguably the best golf course on British & Irish soil and one that vies for the title of being the greatest in the world. I don’t quite put it into that lofty bracket but it is unquestionably superb and rightly celebrated. The canvas at County Down is perfect for golf and it paints the most c…

What a great golf course, top class. Nice welcome from the staff in the pro shop on arrival, beautiful club house and good areas for warming up and practicing. The drive on the 1st Hole is daunting... thankfully i hit one straight down the middle... great range of hole with a few blind drives and approaches... watch out for the pot bunker on the 9th, its right in front of…

Played there with 2 friends of the Netherlands. And we played a lot of courses over whole Europe. But this is the very best we all agreed. Played awful but still enjoyed this wonderful beauty.

We verbleven in het hotel naast de golfbaan. Dorpje heeft in de avond weinig vertier :-). De golfbaan is op loopafstand van het hotel. Wat een schitterende golfbaan is dit. De greenfee was iets schappelijker vanwege winterseizoen maar baan was in topshare. Het onderhoud is echt top en soms waan je je helemaal alleen in de baan. Moeilijk? met handicap 20 is het echt listig…

Founded in 1888 as a 9-hole venue, this well-known layout has the touches of the famed Old Tom Morris upon it. He was invited over from Scotland to advise on the construction of the second nine and it, as well as the front half, live up to what one expects to find in true links golf. The turf is firm and rolling, the bunkers are small, but deep and devious, and the gree…

Annesley Links With over 300 courses across Ireland, you must note that not all the good courses come up in conversations, for whatever reason. One track that’s a true delight is Annesley Links, the little sister to a big name, Royal County Down. That being said, the ‘tiny’ tyke more than holds her own on the wind-swept sand dunes in Newcastle, Northern Ireland. While …

Venu exprès de France pour jouer ce parcours mythique nous avons été époustoufflé par la qualité de RCD (malgré des attentes élevées de notre part). Le seul bémol est l'abscence de driving range (juste un énorme chipping/putting green). Le reste était juste parfait. RCD est le plus beau parcours que je n'ai jamais joué (et j'ai eu la chance de déjà pas mal jouer de par…

Experiencia increíble, un links course espectacular, durante muchos años ha sido considerando el mejor campo del mundo y sin duda puede serlo. Los primeros 7 hoyos son complicados con varios golpes ciegos. Greenes muy movidos y rápidos. Recomiendo jugarlo una vez en la vida.

Dit is de mooiste baan die ik ooit gespeeld heb. Het landschap en de shaping van de fairways is ongelooflijk mooi. Het is echt links golf, dus harde fairways en greens.

Beste baan die ik ooit heb gespeeld. Hele natuurlijke ligging, lang en uitdagend, heel afwisselend. Echt linksgolf dus harde greens en bump and run spelen. Schitterend uitzicht op de zee en de bergen. Magisch!

RCD is without a doubt the best course in the emerald Isle, I cannot understand why Royal Portrush was chosen to host an Open before RCD, I can only imagine that the infrastructure is not in place to handle the Open,...

Voor mij de mooiste golfbaan van Europa. Schitterende natuur alom. Adembenemende starttee met een prachtige duinvallei recht voor u. De baan gaat op en neer doorheen duinengebied. Moeilijke tekening. Verraderlijke bunkers en fantastische greens. Af te raden aan hoge handicappers. Old Tom Morris creëerde hier een prachtbaan met als signature hole de 9 par 4 met een blin…

The golf course has the most spectacular setting. Not much advantage given to Ladies on the tees which meant making the fairway on a couple of holes challenging to say the least! A good local walking caddy by the name of Stephon saved me at least 20 shots & would recommend him highly. Club house atmosphere just a little lacking but very tasty food and wonderful vista of…
