What the club says: 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 Championship Links Course stretches along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zigzagging back and forth to provide a different vista from virtually every hole.
The Annesley Links shares the same magnificent setting as the Championship Links and is full of character. Although much shorter than the Championship Links, it is still a very testing course, with magnificent views of sea, mountains and duneland.
Most Helpful Review
Very short course - this is Royal County Down's little brother course so plays like a proper links course. Greens superb. Rough and bushes brutal. It's small but can be very tough - especially if windy as it is very tight off the tees.

Golf Course Reviews for Royal County Down Golf Club
Excellently maintained course with good greens and fantastic views. Would play again!!
(Round played: Dec 2017 - Score: 107 Handicap: 28)
Wonderful golf course which is intimidating throughout but seems to provide an enjoyment factor above many similar 'top' links golf courses. I played in benign conditions and found it to be gettable off my mid-handicap, when straight off the tee. Fairways and greens pristine. The welcome (admittedly alongside a member) was very warm. Would return in a heartbeat.
(Round played: Sep 2016 - Score: 101 Handicap: 12)
A great links course, which doesn't overly penalize the errant shot. A lot of blind shots, and a caddy is recommended for the first time you play it. Long; regardless of handicap, consider using the yellow ("Stableford") tees. Very fast, hard greens; probably from the constant wind off the sea; hard to stop the ball. Not cheap, but a once-in-a-lifetime must play! jpc
