Royal County Down, Newcastle, Northern Ireland

Established in 1889, Royal County Down stands as one of the oldest golf clubs in Ireland. Two courses are found here: the Annesley Links and the Championship Links. The Championship Links present a challenging series of holes, including numerous blind tee shots and several obscured approach shots.

To get some playing time at the Royal County Down you'll have to book well in advance, but it'll prove worth the wait. The backdrop to this locale is both visually magnificent and steeped in history. Along with a five-mile long beach and the Mountains of Mourne (a range which includes Ireland's highest peak, Slieve Donard), the Strangford Lough Harbor forms part of the panorama.
