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.

First Time Playing

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.

My son and I could not get over how good condition the course was in overall.it has had money and attention spent on it in recent years.the course was mainly dry under foot compared to other parklands we have played recently.

The greens were remarkably consistent and true,this must be a benefit from hosting the ni open.

Good mix of holes,well done ,keep it up.

Slow play at best

booked through teeoftimes and wished i hadnt at the home of the Northern Ireland Open.Course was very wet and pathways complete mudbaths but worst of all was the pace of play. Almost 3 hours for first 9 holes and then came the tenth where a very welcome bar and food service was set up but this only made the slow play worse as 4 x 4 balls having refreshments and waiting to tee off and was a major problem and bottleneck. After taking another hour to play next 2 holes just gave up and wont be back in a hurry, Why no one was out on course to deal with the slow play i will never know but reckon if i had stayed til the end would have taken around 6.5 hrs which is a joke

Top course in northern ireland

As always this course is perfect, we would always play after the northern irish open when the stands are still up and not a blade of grass is out of place, would book via golfnow as its even better value for money. 5*
