A course to play but not to stay

This course has probably the most stunning views of Belfast. The course is nestled between the famous Cavehill and Belfast Lough.

The course is hilly, basically the majority of the holes run up and down. There are buggies available and if you have any aches or pains in the legs I would recommend getting one, but you have to book a head. The fairways are tree lined but not densely, so if you do hit into them you’ll be able to have a shot out to at least advance your ball.

The course was beautifully laid out, the greens were fair rather than quick so suits a mid to high handicapper. Every hole has a stunning view of Cavehill and Belfast Lough and is worth a visit simply for that.

Now the only downside to this course. I’ve played this course a few times and each time I have to say I’m unimpressed with the welcome that it gives to its visitors. The welcome is a reluctant hello, if you even get that and some of the bar staff could do with a course in customer service which is a shame as the clubhouse is large and modernish and the views over the course are stunning from the outdoor seating.

Nice course, worth a visit

This is a decent challenge, unfortunately the few times I have played it, it has been wet. This is not entirely the fault of the course (heavy rain 24/48 hours prior to play). Looking forward to playing it in the dry.
Need to be relatively fit as it's not a flat course. Tee boxes and fairways are looked after. Greens are fast, even when wet! Layout is interesting and far from dull. I enjoy playing this course.

Golf with the Cave hill as background, stunning views

Played two days before captains day , the course was immaculate. Staff were very helpful and the club pro slotted me into a four ball of members . I enjoyed every minute of our game and they made me feel really welcome . Many thanks to all for a great days golf on a tight , tricky course. Special mention to The greens which were a joy to putt on , tough to read . Brilliant

Great parkland course

This is a fantastic course with lots of hills and stunning scenery to take in along the way. As we played in November it was a bit soft underfoot off the fairways but still in great condition for time of year. Full tees and greens, with greens being immaculate. May be hilly for some people so book a buggy to help you round. Overall a great course on the outskirts of Belfast.

Great views

Good course but bring a respirator and a map;)

I would have enjoyed the day a lot more if we would have hired out a golf buggy
Our 4 ball walk all courses but would recommend a golf buggy around here because we all struggled up and down the hills.
We are all relativity fit aged 30ish and did find it very tiring.
Many tee boxes where not marked and hard to navigate to the next tee.
The course was in good condition with excellent greens. Testing course with a good variety of holes. Fantastic views of the cave Hill and belfast lough.
Definitely take at least an extra club length when shooting up hill & rent a buggy ;)
