Set against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne, Royal County Down is located in one of the world's most naturally beautiful links settings. Much beloved by our American golfers, it stretches along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zigzagging back and forth. The narrow fairways are surrounded by purple heather and yellow whin, punishing territory for those who slice their way in. No wonder Golf Digest voted Royal County Down as Number 1 in the World's 100 Greatest Golf Courses in 2017.
And what better, after a satisfying round on Royal County Down, than a steadying pint of the black stuff in the warm embrace of The Maghera Inn. Sure it’s only 3 miles away, less than a 10 minutes drive. And while you’re here, you’ll be having some fine food to build up your strength for tomorrow’s game.
