Poor condition

I've played this course on a number of occasions & it has been a good experience, This time it wasn't up to a reasonable standard , it's not the best time of year for golf, but having said that it was in poor condition ...greens were poor along with fairways , then to add it all off the hoses to clean trolley ,shoes etc weren't working ! overall not a good day ......

Great course

Have played Carnalea a number of times now condition of the course is great and the greens are always in A1 condition , not a overly long course which may suit some fairways are quite wide and and very forgiving so suits the high handicappers like myself , clubhouse is also excellent nice food with superb views of the Belfast lough , if you haven't played here before definitely worth a visit usually great value too .

Good weather

Interesting, with views

The good points :-

Although only a par 69 & just about 6K yds, most holes are sufficiently interesting and with hazards or features that concentrate the mind. The layout is good even though there is a bit of a trek between the 9th &10th, with the short par 3 9th probably being the feature hole, and there are very scenic views of Belfast Lough, the South Antrim coast and passing shipping traffic to be had from most parts of the course.

The not-so-good points :-

{Bearing in mind the time of year} Much work going on around the course with sand being spread over much of the fairways leading to an unusual practice of either placing a small plastic mat to play off or moving the ball to edge of the fairway for semi-rough placing. Greens had been recently hollow-tined plus sanded and were consequently quite slow and bobbly and there were winter mats on all tees plus a VERY poor temporary green on the 18th. One all-year-round criticism would be that there are a lot of blind tee shots with no pictorial view availability for guidance, plus hole signage could do with being improved.

One thing to note too, is that parking is limited at the clubhouse, but it IS possible to travel by train & the station is only 100M or so away, with the track bisecting the course - hence the walk from 9th green to 10th tee.
