Good enough

Played this course just before lockdown and it was in a terrible state played it again after lockdown and it has changed rapidly.
All in good condition except the tee boxes. Very uneven under foot. All in all ok course

Good for the winter

Handy course for me, is very good for winter as it drains well. Wind can get up as its so open. Stay in fairway and ul be fine, fairway itself was long but can be expected in winter. 4 ball ahead of my 2 ball whole way until 14th hole or so then they finally let us through. Slow play Can be an issue sometimes. Great value for money at only 12 pound

Down Royal Golf Lisburn NI

An inexpensive parkland 18 hole course set within the perimeter of the Down Royal Race Course. Quite a forgiving course that feels more like a links than parkland. Lots of gorse to trap stray shots, although not too much to make the course unsuitable for high handicappers. The only problem I found was that signage was poor and did lead to scurrying around trying to find the bext tee box. In all a nice course to play.

Grea value but don’t bother with play and eat deal on here

Think I’ve reviewed before and would be the same , grand course for the money. 3 or us played today for £11+£1 bookings no feel very reasonable. 2 of us booked meal with the golf for £20+£1 , a £9 difference. Still very reasonable ,until we’re ordering and are told to order of the lunch menu , £6 . Or they would take £6 of a full price main? Again we paid £9. There was a walk up offer of 2x courses for £10
So good course, good value, food ok but don’t book on here 1st !!

Good all round

Excellent course, good layout, very forgiving off the fairways, pretty flat also which was good. Only small criticism is the lack of signposting for tees, only an issue for first-timers though.

Down royal GC

Great play and meal deal on GN. Had a driving range to warm up on and a short game area that has been neglected for some time. Fairways were excellent to play of considering the amount of rain that fell over the past few days. Green were in good condition and ran well. Tee boxs were not level even the slightest which made teeing off more difficult than it should be, but that was really the only major complaint. The meal afterwards was great with a pint. Well recommend this to others.
