Compact but well laid out course in great condition. No par 5s but don't let that put you off. Some brilliant tee shots. Very nice course and well worth a visit.

Played on a Sunday and the course was relatively quiet. Tight 9 hole course with great views over Belfast Lough.

The course itself was in great condition. Not too difficult off the tee but plenty of green side bunkers that make things interesting, I should know, I found most of them on my way round.

Definitely recommend playing here

Great 9 holes of golf. Course is in immaculate condition. Nice touch that the tee positions change completely on the back 9. Not massively long but long enough to be a good test. Well protected greens. If you've not played it before go and play it.

9 hole course looking on to belfast Locke..a wee pleasure to play and not to taxing on the legs ..holes 2 and 3 a five is good ...the other holes should b par to a half decent player ...signature hole is the 15th from the high tee box overlooking

Helensbay beach which is probably the best view on the course.. staff are friendly in the 19th and the Guinness is well worth waiting on when sorting the cards out at the end...pleasure and easy day out.

A 9 hole course with 3 holes a bit of a stretch but otherwise relatively short and straightforward with a reasonable amount of hazards but hard to lose a ball. A couple of hills and a good view right at the sea makes it pleasant and it's well kept and reasonably priced .

This course is well kept ..greens are lovely but can catch you out depending on pin positions..the 1st 3 holes are demanding enough a 5 on the 2nd and 3rd is good and the tee shot from the 15th is beautiful with Helens bay beach down below which can also catch you out on windy days..overall the course is in great condition and a pleasure to walk round...

Great day at Helens Bay with the staff being very friendly and helpful...First time any of our 4ball had played the course and we were all in agreement that we will certainly go back...fairways and greens were in excellent condition considering we played in the middle of January!

Looking forward to another round soon .
