Inniscrone Golf Club in Avondale is one of the toughest public courses in the area. It is a formidable challenge to say the least, but an enjoyable one. None of the holes run parallel to each other and no two holes are alike either. The greens have quite a bit of variation from one to the next but mostly they are very large and extremely fast. Although the greens only have mild contouring, the rippling landscape still provides plenty of challenges throughout. Strategically placed bunkers perfectly complement the dramatic elevation changes, ranging from pot bunkers to vast expanses of sand. Inniscrone Golf Club's ninth hole is a memorable one since it encapsulates the course's appeal with a ridge of cross-bunkers just off the tee and even more along the left side.

I really love this couse layout and wish I lived closer. I'm not a scratch golfer and not very long off the tee but this course makes you use your head like a pro. Some holes driver is out of the question, and the short part 3 No 5 is also no gimmie, because long is dead!

We were fine until the turn - what is it about the turn that grinds the pace of play to a halt? Tee times are appropriately far apart, but still a back up> The course was not even that crowded, but when I teed off there were 2 groups backed up on 10, and when I finished 9 there was the same log jam. ??? The pace on the back must be glacial when the course is crowded.

Private Course

How unusual is it to find you have a course to yourself on a beautiful day and the course is not private, but public! That was the case today when we teed off at 8:00AM with only one group ahead of us and the next group was scheduled to Tee Off a half an hour later. The course was in extremely good condition with carpeted fairways, most tee boxes in very good condition and only a small amount of blight on the greens.

We found the course to be in unplayable conditions on multiple holes. There was standing water on several greens. We found holes with sprinklers just pouring water on the course.

Bunkers looked like they haven’t received any attention in weeks or more. I realize that with covid, rakes aren’t going to be out there but the bunkers used to be a beautiful aesthetic and significant part of the course design but not in their current condition. I get it, they’re incredibly labor intensive and costly to maintain and a lot of businesses are hurting in the pandemic.

Not necessarily the club’s fault but no one seemed to be fixing ball marks on the greens. We fixed as many as we could on a lot of greens but it seemed like no effort was being made here for a while and it’s a shame because it really affects play and already takes a lot of work to maintains greens.

The course layout was disappointing, particularly compared to the other Hanse designs in the area. Obviously not going to change the layout and there are a few wonderfully designed holes on the course.

Pace of play seemed to get slower and slower throughout the round. Maybe that was partly a function of the conditions but 5+ hour rounds are frustrating.

The staff we interacted with were all friendly, helpful and accommodating.

Pace of play was very good for mid Saturday. The greens and bunkers were not in great shape, but that did not take away from the course.

Little soggy but fun

Course greens in good shape, fairways soggy, sand traps are puddles, and the tee boxes are hurting. But we had a good time. Not much course can do after the heavy rains we just had.

What a shame

Used to be my favorite course, but has sadly turned to my least favorite. Would come out once a week to play, but it seems like bad management has ruined this course. What a shame, I’m hoping someone that actually cares about the conditions buys this course and fixes it up.

Too many elevation changes

Very nice golf course. Not for people don't know their yardage on hills. Challenging to find exact distances because of hills. Very nice golf course otherwise and well kept

Walked

Not Bad but....

I don't often play Inniscrone as prefer other local golf courses more but all were booked solid. Got right off with great pace of play on front 9. The fairways and greens are decent but the bunkers need considerable work. I finished on 9 and walked over to 10th tee where a two-some in a cart jumped in front of me (I was walking). I waited ON EVERY SHOT AND EVERY HOLE on the back 9 with no ranger in site. My good round was destroyed due to waiting and frustration. The group NEVER waved me through. Back 9s like this are the reason I avoid Inniscrone

Done for the year

Usually a favorite but they’re on the verge of losing the greens and half the fairways. Love the layout of this wooded and challenging course. The signature fast greens are bumpier than a teenager’s face with tons of rot and fungus. The tee boxes range from chopped up to sandy and unplayable, and the fairways are haven’t seen a divot repair all summer and also lots of brown. I’ll be be back in the spring but not worth the money, even for twilight prices. Othe courses with similar problems are giving vouchers and warnings, but kinda seems like they have their heads in the sand about the true conditions.

Course has a lot of water, environmental and a lot of elevation changes. The rough is very sticky and slightly long making recovery tough. No course map on card. Thank goodness we were matched with a 2 some familiar with the layout.

Don't waste your time or Money

Horrible condition. Bad tee boxes. Crappy fairways. Shaggy rough. Torn up greens. Slow pace and so wet you can't believe.
Spend your time and money somewhere else.
