The Royal County Down Golf Club Visitor Information

Booking Conditions

Tee Times

Our tee times for visitors are at 12 minute intervals and are based on groups of 4 players.  Visiting groups of less than 4 players or groups where there are not multiples of 4 will be made up into groups of four.   Our policy is designed to reflect the general speed of play on the course which invariably will be a four ball pace as well as to enable the optimum number of visitors to play the Championship Links.

Payment

Full payment of the Green Fee is required 30 days before the date of play.

For groups of 12 or more players a non refundable deposit of 25% will be required at the time of booking.

Refund Policy

In the event of cancellation by, or on behalf of the player, the prepaid amount will be refunded on request as follows:-

More than 30 days before the date of play - 100%

Between 30 and 15 days before the date of play - 50%

Between 15 days and 2 days before the date of play - 25%

Less than 48 hours before the day of play – nil refund

We strongly recommend that visiting golfers take out travel insurance at the time of booking.

In the event of cancellation by the Club due to weather conditions or other circumstances, the prepaid amount will be refunded on request in full. 

Caddies

Caddies are self-employed and although we will do our best to meet requests for caddies, we cannot guarantee availability.  Please see separate Caddies page.

Bad Weather

When lightning or other dangerous conditions occurs, players will be asked to leave the links and take shelter.  Any visitors who fail to comply with such a request remain on the links at their own risk.

Tee Positions

The Tee Markers positions are reviewed each day by the Greenkeeping Staff taking into consideration of many factors including links maintenance and weather. 

Speed of Play

The Course Marshal has the complete authority to ask players to move to easier tees in the event that the group’s position on the links is not maintained.  The Club expects each group to keep up with the group in front and if substantial gaps develop the Course Marshal has the authority to move players forward by one or more holes to keep up with the group in front.
