Consistently ranked among the Top 10 courses in the world, this par 71 links course measures over 7,100 yards and is often referred to as one of the toughest courses in the British isles. Located in Newcastle, County Down, Northern Ireland, the Championship Course dates back to 1899 with design credit to Old Tom Morris. Set along the Dundrum Bay against the extraordinary backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne and offering irreplaceable panoramas from nearly every hole, its naturally undulating fairways and rugged sand dunes, colored by purple heather and yellow flowering gorse – coupled with its world famous ‘bearded’ bunkers and small greens full of sever borrows – make it a true test of any player’s game.
