A fantastic course with beautiful scenery especially on the back 9. Croagh Patrick is a stunning backdrop especially behind the 14th green. The first six holes are pretty flat and tame, but then you reach the 7th and the whole nature of the course changes with no more dull holes and hardly a flat fairway in site, the 11th being... More

This was the 1st parkland course I've played after 8 golfing trips to Ireland. What a pleasant surprise. You better score on the 1st 6 holes because starting at #7 the course develops some real teeth. Number 8 and the back 9 will test you even if the wind is mild. You'll like both the par 3 twelfth, and the... More

Very friendly and helpful staff. We started playing in sunshine, it had been raining earlier in the day, and managed the first four holes before the heavens opened and experienced a "flash flood" moment. By the time we got back to the Pro's Shop we were drenched and slightly disappointed that he refunded only half our green fees. Would love... More

We enjoyed the course, and weather was fairly ok so the scenery was spectacular needless to say. I would recommend using a buggy if you don't have a battery operated buggy with you as the course is very hilly.

Maybe our experience suffered from excessively high expectations because of everything we had heard about the course, but I must say we were "underwhelmed." The course was in pristine condition and the greens were fast and challenging. That being said, I did not find the course very interesting with the exception of perhaps two holes. Compared with other courses we... More

My wife and I have played this course several times over the past number of years and enjoy it . This June we felt it was not in as good condition that it has been in the past. However it will not prevent us coming back again.

My wife and I visited this golf course recently. We have played here on a number of occasions and we are always made most welcome. The course overall was in good condition and was being made ready for the captains prize a couple of days later. What did surprise us, was how quiet the course was. Green fee E 20/25... More
