Playing at Royal County Down
You can’t just show up at Royal County Down and get out on the course. It is often fully booked and you need to reserve your spot well ahead of time. Your green fee needs to be paid no later than one month in advance. If you are fewer than four, you will most likely be paired up with other players. With all four-balls on the course, you may think play is slow, but the generous 12-minute starting interval means that play mostly flows smoothly.
