Royal County Down, New 16th Hole Opened
Royal County Down Golf Club, Newcastle, Co. Down

19th November 2004:
Royal County DownWe have had excellent reports on the new 16th hole at Royal County Down. Opened in early September, the hole has been redesigned by golf architect Donald Steel.

The goal was to retain the character of the hole as a great matchplay hole while increasing the visibility of the mountains as a backdrop. The hole remains the shortest par-4 on the course and now features bunkers and undulations that require precise planning off the tee in order to lay up on a flat area. However at 319 yards from the medal tee, there is also an option to rip it down the left hand side and try to let it feed in towards the well-protected green.

Sandwiched between the 450yard par-4 15th and 400 yard par-4 17th, the sixteenth is an opportunity to make a par or better - but beware the cunning run-offs from the green.
