Review for Royal County Down (Championship)

Reviewer Score:


Without a doubt the best golf experience in the world. The course is absolute perfection with incredibly fast an smooth greens - clearly well-maintained throughout the year - and a great facility and staff. I golfed here in February so it was a bit chilly, however even in the winter the course was in incredible shape. The clubhouse was immaculate, there are great locker rooms and warm showers, and a wonderful bar/dining area; I recommend getting there several hours early to take full advantage of all the course amenities.

Additionally, I recommend having a caddy; the course knowledge they have will take anywhere from 5-8 shots off your scorecard. Besides the blind shots on the course, they can give you great yardage factoring in wind, how hard the ball will bounce, whether you're hitting out of the rough or on the fairway, etc. Paying the extra money for a caddy enhances the experience well beyond the cost.
