The course has great views
Greens covered in sand but all courses have it now for this time of year played well in greens
Played the course on a really fresh autumnal morning, the night before there had been a huge amount of rain. We were warned by the pro that the course was very soft in places due to this.
We went ahead and played with the knowledge that the course would not be in perfect condition however this was more than made up for by the stunning scenery on the front 9.
The course had matured significantly from the last time I played it 15 years ago and the growth of trees to now line the fairways makes it a much better course.
I can't wait to go back in the summer and play it when it's in it's best condition and see how it plays then.
This is a unique course in my eyes as the front 9 is set on a massive hill which is quite a slog to get up the first 3 or 4 holes but once your get to the summit you are really well rewarded with some outstanding 360 degree panoramic views over Belfast Lough and the surrounding areas. A really friendly and welcoming atmosphere made the day worthwhile and I'll definitely be going back some day soon.
Totally superb course,friendly staff and golfers would recommend any good golfer to play this course.
