Royal County Down Golf Club : The First Century

Categories: , , ,


” At Newcastle no other course of my acquaintance has any hill so magnificent as Slieve Donard towering above it. To see from one’s window its crest just emerging from a great sea of early mist is to taste one of the intenser joys of shaving on the morning of a workless day. Many people know Newcastle and it is perhaps superflous to say that it is a course of big and glorious carries, nestling greens, entertainingly blind shots, local knowledge, and beautiful turf…the kind of golf that people play in their most esctatic dreams.” Bernard Darwin (1930)
