2nd Time Lucky
I first played this course on a charity day last year-and needless to say it was a washout.... dreadful weather mixed with a chocablock course made it difficult to enjoy or even make the most of the surroundings...
Fast forward 16 months and things couldn’t have been more different. Yes, there were still light drizzle but that was it! I had a 8.26 tee-time, arrived at 8.15 and was told I could go on ahead as the course was clear. The 1st 2 holes I was being “stalked” by the green keepers which is always fun but they were gone by the 3rd tee-box. I was told about the club rule about playing anything from 150 yards in off the light rough-this wasn’t an issue as it was clearly marked out on every hole.
All the tee-boxes were in play, as were the greens— welcome sight in late November. The overall presentation of the course was superb, no major issues with water saturation, and all greens were running pure.
Well worth the money, I was smiling the entire day (once the stalkers had gone away) and this came across in my nett Par score-delighted!
Highly recommended to anyone wanting to play a Royal course at non-Royal prices!
Great Day of Golf
Andrew the Head Professional was very accommodating to our group and made us feel like members for a day. We all walked the course and glad we did because it was a true gem to enjoy the vistas and the course while enjoying a parkland setting course with views of the water. Course was in very good shape and the greens were challenging but fair. Clubhouse and hospitality were nothing short of spectacular. Glad we had the opportunity to play such a pleasant golf course.
Very nice course close to center city Belfast
Nice natural layout following the hills. Beautiful view of water wit ships passing by. Greens were much faster than they looked especially when putting towards the water. Claims to be the oldest golf club in Ireland which alone makes it worth playing. Definitely have a drink in the clubhouse as it is spectacular and everyone will treat you like a member.
So glad i got the chance to play this course with GOLFNOW and i will certainly be back. Treated really well by the staff here and the course was great to play. Played in February and the greens were in great condition. Def recommend this course and looking forward to getting the chance to play again come the summer time as im sure it would be superb.
