Royal County Down

Published by Golf’s Greatest Holes on 4 October 2021

Royal County Down is located in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful links settings in the Murlough Nature Reserve. Against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne, the links stretches along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zigzagging back and forth to provide a different vista from virtually every hole.

The narrowest ribbons of fairways thread their way through as impressive a set of sand dunes as could be imagined.

Chris plays another course from every golfer’s bucket list. Paul’s chosen the 4th. A tough par 3. The wind blowing in from the left off the Irish Sea makes it a tough tee shot. The green, some 2100 years away, is well guarded by bunkers too. Good luck Chris!
