Helpful staff in pro shop

It was a day with a forecast for a storm in the afternoon, the time when I had booked our tee time. Called the pro shop they had a free tee time in the morning and allowed me to switch to that time. Got in 13 holes before the storm hit. Enjoyed the first 9 holes before all the rain started. Excellent customer service.

Hill top

Great round of golf on a great course even know bit wet in places. we were Playing of mats and a couple of temporary greens we really enjoyed it the mats were so easy to play off no problem putting tees in any were on the mats. If I had one down side to it that was the bunkers really bad shape not raked in the morning and players not taking them after use.

Some Nice Holes

The course was in good condition for winter time. Some of the holes were altered with temporary tee boxes etc. I was told to do the back 9 first then front 9 with which was fine.
Greens were pretty good for the most part for time of year, although I played here in September last year and they were perfect and fast.
Best holes, were No.2,6,15

Holywood Golf Course

Great weather for time of year
Fairways and greens in good shape for time of year
forward tees which made the course easier
Greens while in good shape just slow to being wet and not swissed by green keepers first thing in the morning
still enjoyable with mates

Holygood!!

First time in years playing the course but soon remembered it! Played back 9 first as ladies were playing and slowed things down - a lesson in course etiquette for a couple of them needed - Staff very friendly and helpful. Work ongoing at present round the clubhouse but no disruption at all Views from back 9 spectacular and definitely be coming back! Well worth a visit and would recommend to anybody

Best value for golf in Belfast on Rory's home course

Only 14 GBP for green fees on this wonderful layout with views of the Belfast bay from many holes. Easy to rent clubs and a buggy. Friendly fellows after my round let me hold a replica of Rory's US Open trophy. Amazing. Front nine was much easier than the back nine.

Surprisingly underwhelming

No staff at 8am, greens covered in leaves and that's no exaggeration. Pace was good until 10th hole. It's seems to be the case that the regulars were starting of at this hole(10th). Instant back up of all the people who started of on the front 9. Maybe I was expecting more, considering the course is promoted as "the home golf course of Rory mcilroy". My group of playing partners play all over the country, usually first thing in the morning, and nearly every course has their greens sorted at the least.
