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.

Outstanding Value

Although this isn’t the most picturesque course in the greater Belfast areas, what it lacks of visuals is made up for in value for money and playability. All par threes are easily within reach of your average club golfer and even the par 5s are birdie opportunities for 20+ cappers. If you are looking for a fun scorable course then this is the one for you. The added meal deal is perfect as the food is spot on for the price.

Pace of Play

An absolutely stunning day ruined by some of the worst golf etiquette and pace of play I have ever had the unfortunate experience to witness. Stick behind a 3 ball for 5 of the 13 holes we managed to play in 3 1/4 hrs and they point blank refused to acknowledge we were even there never mind let us play through. Not sure how they managed to get around 18 holes considering the sheer volume of balls they apparently lost. Spoke with the pro shop who were less than interested also. I WILL NOT BE BACK!

Excellent winter golf venue

Possibly the best drained course we've ever played, greens in excellent condition too for the time of year, made for a thoroughly enjoyable round for the three of us, will definitely be back.

Windy weather

torrential rain - no problem!!

We played this course a week after hurricane Ophelia and days of torrential rain. Most courses in the area were closed due to flooding, but because of the brilliant drainage Down Royal can stay open all year round.

Course is of moderate difficulty but in the breezy conditions can be a real challenge. I have no hesitation in recommending the course, especially in damp conditions
