What better way to start your experience in Ireland than golfing on a links course on the Atlantic. Great day, even if the golf score was not! Be prepared for all types of weather and to add or remove clothing throughout the day.

Just popped in for lunch. I thought it would be expensive and a touch snobby. However I was pleasantly surprised. The food in the golfers bar was excellent and at a reasonable price. I would recommend this to friends

For a course that is advertised as one of the best in Ireland, to allow play when the greens are in such an appalling condition is beyond belief. Imagine putting on Velcro ...... Absolute waste of money at 150 Euros , daylight robbery. Do not include this golf course in any itinery for an Irish golf trip . Avoid !!

We played only the 9 holes that were open during their course renovation. Took atour of the newholes - 6 right on the ocean. When this is finished, it will be one of the best courses in all of Ireland. Event playing 9, worth going to play. Top notch all the way.

We were really looking forward to playing this course as our society had played Trump in Aberdeenshire. We had been warned that when we booked that only 9 holes were available after we booked flights. We were not expecting 3 temporary greens and tees. Staff were great when we expressed disappointment with a discount and free lunch. Would like to... More

We belonged to the Kiawah Island club for 15 years and were curious about the club at Doon Beg. So when visiting friends near by we decided to drive down in the early evening. Staff were very friendly and showed us around- very nice just like the River Course and Cassique club houses including some of the exact same furniture... More

Additionally we were placed in one of the smaller units despite most of the larger units being unoccupied!!! Dining facility was nice but nothing special. Meals were very good as was... More

This course needs many changes and to the Donald's credit they are underway. 6 Greens & 8tees will be blown up and rebuilt this fall. The Course in it's current configuration like other Greg Norman Designs has way to severe greens and the course lacks the continuity required for a cohesive design, Wait a year before playing it. The Donald... More
