In a history spanning over a century, Royal County Down Golf Club has established a mighty reputation and is now widely regarded as the world's second-best course.

As one of the capstones in Northern Ireland links golf, Royal County Down assumes a stunning location in the Murlough Nature Reserve with the Mountains of Mourne providing a dramatic backdrop that adds yet further to the experience.

As a past host of The Walker Cup, The Amateur Championship, The Curtis Cup and The Senior Open, Royal County Down has been at the forefront of both amateur and professional golf.

2015 saw The Championship Links welcome The Irish Open, hosted by Rory McIlroy, with Denmark's Soren Kjeldsen triumph in a playoff against Bernd Wiesberger and Eddie Pepperell after being tied on -2 after 4 rounds of golf.
