Playing really well from tee to green. Greens are immaculate and not particularly fast so you can afford to go for putts. Highly recommend. Enjoy!

Great day out. Course in great condition from tee to green and is a fair test of golf. Only slightly spoiled because play was slower than normal due to it being captain's day. Pro shop friendly and helpful and did me a good deal on some balls. Will play again.

Really enjoyed the course, ate in the restaurant before going out, ladies were really helpful friendly and food was good and service was quick, really enjoyed the course the walk to the first tee through trees sets you up for the course, well laid out well presented and then you get to the eight to be greeted with fantastic views over belfast and the hills in between framed with the mountains in the background, really enjoyed the day, helped that I shot 2 over,

Course in good condition, playing well. Greens a decent speed. No issues apart from the four ball of hackers that slowed proceedings up from the 6th right through to the 18th. The guy in pink shorts hitting everything straight to his right at a 90 degree angle and his mate who kept taking multiple practice swings with no club in his hand after each and every duff shot were particularly unpleasant. Not having the wit to let a two ball behind them play through was disgraceful.

Went to this course with misplaced high expectations. Nearly every hole is straight. Very few deviations to this. Rough is ROUGH!!!!. Plus side great greens and good fairways. I've played better for less money. Try to keep your footwear clean as the air compressor has been stolen!

When we arrived on the tee 10 minutes before our tee off time we were told at that point that a society had the tee booked until 1.34. Two minutes after our tee off time. The last two groups were not golfers they were playing with borrowed clubs. The was more denim than a wild west show and some lovely tee shirts. I thought in was watching a documentary about Brits abroad in Benidorm! The last group before were slightly more cultured as the brought their own drinks waiter to keep them refreshed. They used their empty cans very well also a tee off markers on most of the holes. I enjoyed the nature work they engaged in though. From keeping the rough mowed to trimming branches and the odd venture into the heather bushes, I say odd but I meant they were odd to watch at every hole. We walked off at the 7th 3 hours later, how we had the patience is beyond me. By this stage the grounds man had to keep reminding these guys that the sun was dangerous for their skin so best to put your designer tee shirts back on. We arrived back at the pro shop hoping for an apology and an opportunity to come back another time and start again. No apology but we could return and play the last 9 some time, No! Surprisingly no class for a course owned by a member of the aristocracy.
