Day 2
Royal County Down is located in one of the world’s most naturally beautiful links settings, in the Murlough Nature Reserve. Against the magnificent backdrop of the Mountains of Mourne, the links stretches along the shores of Dundrum Bay, zig zagging back and forth to provide a different vista from virtually every hole. The narrowest ribbons of fairways thread their way through as impressive a set of sand dunes as could be imagined. The ‘bearded’ bunkers are world famous and feature overhanging lips of marram, red fescue and heather, while the greens are fast and many are domed, rejecting any shot lacking conviction. This is a true test of any player’s command of the traditional bump and run, the preferred way to play any links. In short, Royal County Down offers golfers of all standards the opportunity of playing a truly great course with dramatic panorama of the surrounding mountains and coastline.

Day 3
Malone stands in an attractive wooded parkland estate of some 270 acres, the centrepiece of which is a magnificent 22 acre natural lake. Host of a number of major golfing events, including the Irish Amateur Close Championship in 1984 and the Irish Senior Masters in 1994, won by Tommy Horton, Tony Jacklin won his first professional tournament here in 1966. With a championship measurement of 6,642 yards, Malone may be considered relatively short by modern standards but what it lacks in length, is more than offset by a searching emphasis on accuracy. Characterised by incredible flowering shrubs, tree-lined fairways and a large lake, dominating the back nine holes, rest assured that Malone offers a superb challenge.
