Championship quality but enjoyable play
Played this course for the first time yesterday with the Department of finance golf society (civil service). Everyone loved the course it was a great day! The layout of the course was superb and the greens were excellent - for a championship course off the green tees there was a good mix of hole lengths as well it wasn’t all just ridiculously long par 4’s but a good mix of different tests with challenging rough/bunkers/water to contend with along the way even on the more reachable holes. Loved opportunity for a hot dog/beer/soft drink at the quirky bar after the 9th hole. The food at the restaurant after was also top quality. Will be keen to revisit this course ASAP.
Enjoyed playing Galgorm Castle. A challenging course but is rewarding if you hit to the right places. Course is always kept in good condition, greens had a bit of maintenance work carried out, as the course prepares to host the NI Open next month. Defintetly worth playing here, freindly and helpful staff, and excellent value for money.
Didn't live up to its expectations
First time I have ever played this course and thought i was in for a treat. The course is beautiful but it's certainly not worth £66 per person. Maybe I set my expectations too high after playing the Royal Belfast for half the price the day before. The facilities surrounding the course are excellent just a shame it's over priced for what it actually is.
Great winter condition
Fantastic greens for this time of year (Feb). Really enjoyable round of golf. Good shower/changing facilities and the clubhouse restaurant/bar has been recently refurbished. Sunday dinner was top notch.
Lovely course, greens in first class condition! Hope to play again soon!!
Great course with plenty of challenges for all handicappers
Great course was in great condition pitty my game wasn't on the day only 1 bad point had to start on back 9 1st was looking forward playing at the front 9 1st will definitely play again.
Decent test, but found it flat and a bit boring
Having heard so much about Galgorm, I was looking forward to playing on a sunny Saturday afternoon.
Have to say I was a bit disappointed with the layout and course in general. Can’t think of one undulation on the fairways - just flat and more flat holes. Balls were picking up an awful lot of mud - having played lough Erne the week before and didn’t get a mud ball once. It’s worth playing to make up your own mind, but personally for me, I found it un-interesting and monotonous - par 3’s weren’t great either.
We were also stuck behind an inter-club match which was dreadfully slow.
Great course but very slow
Played this course on Sunday, course was in brilliant condition for the weather there has been.
Took 3 hours to play the first 9 holes, then another hour and a half to get to the 14th. 4 hrs 30mins to play 14 holes and then had to walk in because it was far to slow.
