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
Lovely course with some tight tee shots..plenty of bunkers to catch a errand shot greens in fantastic condition considering time of year......hidden gem
Had to play back 9 first but course was not clearly marked for visitors.
Good track, hilly with great views of Belfast and harbour, greens were excellent some nice tight par 3’s, well worth the money.
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.
The course is a bit hilly and some tee are back on yourself you have to be fit to play this course
Nice course well worth it
Nice course some lovely holes and nice atmosphere- would definitely go back - some work going on but minimal disruption
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.
Worth the visit.
Lovely views, interesting layout, a bit hilly for a carry bag but managed nonetheless. Great food in the restaurant, careful that one room is a private members only bar. Played in 3:30 and it would have been less had it not been for the twosome holding us up in front.
See for yourself
Glorious weather conditions, course in immaculate condition, everything perfect for what was a very pleasant experience. Technically challenging with good greens I would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone.
An experience on a course that made a champion
We where greeted by the pro who made us very welcome. The fairways where quite soft which helped as I don't beleave there is a flat bit on the entire course except for the greens, which where good for the time of year. I didn't find the course particularly testing as my local course also presents uneven lies on the majority of holes. Overall a good course and a must to play if you are in the area just to say you have trod the same turf as Rory.
Friendly welcome for a lone golfer. Was introduced to a couple of members who guided me around the course. Course has some quite severe slopes in places and was a little soggy after a period of rain, causing 2 short par 3's to be out of use. Most par 4's are less than 400 yds from visitors tees, so premium on accuracy into green from non-flat lies, either across slope or up & down slope. Some greens have a definite "do not miss" side due to drop offs.
No food on a Monday which was a little disappointing.
Some impressive trophies won by the 2005 club champion.
Well worth the visit
Not as hard as I'd heard
I'm not a great golfer so had avoided Hollywood in the pas as id heard it was very hard, but i couldn't avoid when the great price on tee off times came up. Course was in great condition for time of year , staff couldn't have been more helpful. And I managed to get a few pars , so all good.
Tight Wee Course
Some nice holes in what is a tightly laid out, well maintained course.
Great Test Of Golf
if you enjoy hills this is the course for you, alot of shots will be played with the ball below or above your feet if you dont hit the middle of the fairway. The course has some good long holes if you hit the ball long and can keep it straight! The sand in the bunkers was soft so easy to escape from. Sadly the greens werent good. The ball didnt roll smooth and stopped quickly due to the greens being slit and sanded.
