Welcome to Our Pictures of the Royal County Down Golf Links, Newcastle, Northern Ireland!

Recently the home of the Senior British Open in 2001 and 2002 along the coast of the Irish Sea. 

Designed by the great Old Tom Morris, in the late 1800's, The Royal County Down Golf Links is one of the greatest of it's kind ever designed anywhere!

The fairways and greens are 'links hard', and narrow, requiring the player to more often than not, as Peter Aliss once advised here, "to play for the front numbers."  There are as many as 7 blind tee shots as well.  And the bunkers are 'links deep' and not easy to advance your ball from.  When the wind whips up from the adjacent Irish Sea, you'd better hold onto your hat as well as your Niblick, as you'll be needing it here!

I was fortunate enough to have caddied here in the 2001 Senior British Open.  The pages that follow are a 'virtual visual tour' from my digital camera on a Tuesday practice round prior to the golf tournament there.
