Great condition for this time of year

Got a hot deal and thought I'd try this course as it is not far from home. Gotta day it's a great little parkland course and very central to Belfast. Was boggy anywhere that I had hit and all 18 greens were in play. Will definitely visit again.

Great city centre golfing

Played today with 2 friends at Balmoral. Highly recommend this course for any level of golfer. A good test for experienced players and a good challenge for the higher handicap. Great value for an enjoyable round in great surroundings.

Hot weather

A pleasant but challenging experience.

The course was in nice condition with fairways easy to hit off.

Greens were a bit slow but this can easily be rectified.

Fairways were tree lined and relatively tight, therefore, straight ball striking is a must.

Professional very friendly and helpful as were bar/restaurant staff and food was excellent.

Bog

I know we've had a bad winter but this place is a bog. Lost count of how many balls we hit on fairway and couldn't find as the grass was so thick or the ball had plugged. Didn't even bother lookibg when it went in rough. Fairways like rough. Rough like jungle and greens like the beach. Save your money go somewhere with a bit of drainage.

Balmoral golf course

First impressions very good. Lovely looking club house. Used the putting, chipping and driving nets which was nice to warm up with. Tee boxs were very uneven and lumpy but fairways in very good condition and we're like hitting of lush carpet considering the rain but there where some areas of bad ground. Greens were excellent, they ran so true and we're a pleasure to putt on. The variation of holes was great. I have heard members of this club all very snobby but I never felt this while I was there so I would truly recommend the course to anyone. But avoid playing in the winter.

2ball

Course in decent condition but greens atrocious (prob spiked for commencement of season) but glad I did not pay the overpriced green fee for a Sunday, but had nice weather, good company and made most of it. Very easy to use teetime to benefit of reduced priced greenness offered by golf clubs like balmoral. Will be using tee time again.

Excellent city course

Nice parkland course in the middle of Belfast.

It can be tough if you don't bring your A game. There are some long par 4's. The greens are quick with plenty of swing, & the pin position on that day were ruthless lol.

It's an easy walk around, as it's not too hilly & we finished our round in 3hrs30min

Overall, it's really worth a visit.

Very dull course tbh. Straightforward parkland course with few hazards on any hole other than the green side bunkers. Well maintained nonetheless but not particularly lengthy and no standout holes.

Graham and Davids day out.

We played on a nice October day, there was some drainage work being carried out which didn't affect our day. Some nice holes10 and 11 come to mind and finishes with quite a testing pat 4. Will be back to play it again. Found it excellent value for money. Pro was very helpful with a short notice situation which cropped up for me. Didn't use clubhouse so therefore can't comment.

Bargain

I have to say if you get to play this course for under £20 it's an absolute bargain. Course is in great condition and the greens were running smoothly. Some tricky holes and challenging par 3s. It was good to get a few par 4s with a driver then 5 wood to test my game. Very enjoyable round of golf with an easy smooth booking and check in.
