Founded In 1889 and designed by Old Tom Morris, Royal County Down is located in the beautiful surroundings of the Murlough Nature Reserve, stretching along the shores of Dundrum Bay.

Not only is it a fine test of golf but it has accompanying scenery that is utterly spellbinding. With frequent visitors such as Rory McIlroy, Royal County Down attracts the best players in the world; whether for competition or for sheer enjoyment. The course has been graced by the likes of Woods, Watson, Nicklaus, Palmer and Player.
