Annesley Links golf course forms the second half of the Royal County Down golf club which dates back to 1889 in the Murlough Nature Reserve set in the Mountains of Mourne in Newcastle, County Down, Northern Ireland. Newcastle is just 30 miles south of Belfast or 90 miles north of Dublin, and so is easily accessible by road.

The course was designed by Old Tom Morris, both one of the most prolific designers and respected golfers of his generation, who won The Open Championship three times in his life.

The course is much shorter than the Championship Links course, but it continues to share the same magnificent views of the dune-filled landscape, and is considered to be a course that is just as challenging. Royal County Down is widely regarded as having the best golfing facilities in the country, providing a fulfilling day for golfers of all abilities.

Annesley is an 18 hole Links golf course with a par of 66, spread over 4519 metres. While buggies are not permitted on the course, caddies are readily available, and clubs, shoes and trolleys are available for hire on request.

The club boasts spectacular views of both courses from the Murlough Room, which offers food and drink to golfers, which is available throughout the day with a fully licensed bar. Locker rooms are provided for men and women, with full shower and washroom facilities.

It is advised to check the weather conditions in Northern Ireland as it is often changeable, although it is worth bearing in mind that Newcastle itself has its own micro climate and therefore is much drier than other parts of Ireland.

As the course is world-renowned, there are plenty of places to eat and stay nearby and there is something for everyone. You can take a look at customer reviews of this course on the left hand side.

    (Round played: Sep 2016 - Score: 101 Handicap: 12)A great links course, which doesn't overly penalize the errant shot. A lot of blind shots, and a caddy is recommended for the first time you play it. Long; regardless of handicap, consider using the yellow (Stableford) tees. Very fast, hard greens; probably from the constant wind off the sea; hard to stop the ball. Not cheap, but a once-in-a-lifetime must play! jpc
