Mature, pretty course

3rd time we have played here. Always enjoy the course. It was wet today and 2 holes were closed they let me know that before we travelled up. Even with the rain fairways and greens where in good shape. 4 ball in front were very slow and really should have been told to speed up. Local golfers and we where told they are always slow. But we did enjoy our round. Stay out of the trees which line the course and add for some great settings. The 18th is one of my favorite last holes in northern ireland. Great value and we will be back again

Great Course shame about the weather.

Despite some of worse conditions I have ever played in this is an impressive course and will return some summers day. Could not even see the mountains. Just nearly got finished before dark but still enjoyable day.

Nice course

Weather was amazing the Sunday we played. Course in immaculate condition and has some beautiful approach shots. Testing course. We booked again to play in a few weeks. Quality!

Restaurant closed atm though, assume due to COVID-19. Headed into warrenpoint afterwards for food so no issue.

Great Little Trek

One of my favourite NI courses... Almost 100 year old course, Not the longest but not short either. Some very tricky drives.. and tough enough to score on.

Some really good holes...
- 1 (Par 5. you need to be brave and cut the corner)
- 5 (Driveable par 4, but easy to lose a ball
- 6 (Par 5, tough drive, then into a raised green)
- 7 (Par 4, tough drive, need to cut the corner)
- 13 Really Picturesque long 4
- 14, SI1 - honestly I don't know how to lay this and Im a single figure golfer

A true gem of a course.

Myself and my teenage son played the course for the first time as visitors on the 8th July and thought it was fantastic.
The lady in the pro shop was extremelly efficient and helpful.
The course was in amazing condition, especially the bunkers (although I spent to much time in them)
The greens and the close fringes were in lovely condition, top marks to the ground staff.
Pace of play was very good, which also adds to an enjoyable round.
Overall a very good days golf and will definitely be back.

Gear, well maintained course.

Brilliant course for all levels, good wide fairways to let the big stick go and also some tricky par 3s and 4s to test the shorter game!

What a Gem

Beautiful location, everything about the course was excellent, tee boxes, fairways, greens and the weather. Was a joy to stroll down the beautiful lush fairways. Some are tight and put you under pressure. Greens held a ball well and were a good pace. A very nice par 5 18th hole. The four of us very much enjoyed our round and said we would definitely return to play. Lived in northern Ireland for a long time and we were amazed that we hadn't heard more about this course. Very enjoyable

Let the course do the talking

The lady in the Pro shop was rather dry and disconcerting but don't let that deter you from getting to know this Eddie Hackett layout. This course can be difficult at first but play it at least three times before passing judgement. Clubbing the doglegs is the main challenge and the first tee shot sets the tone. There is a good variety of holes. Some tight drives, some open. My favourite part was booming drives over the many crests & braes to watch my ball sweep against the backdrop of the Mourne mountains. The greens are fair and we'll maintained, stay below the hole on 15. The stroke index one 14th is as tough an approach shot as your likely to face. The narrow passage to the green can only be accessed by a well placed, and borderline hooked tee shot. Pity about the man made duck pond which spoils an otherwise good hole. A lay up may be a wise decision or you can skim the water like I unintentionally did. The best shot on the course is the approach to the seventh. It makes up for the indecisiveness you encounter on the tee box. I will definitely be back to Kilkeel, I prefer to Warrenpoint, sshhhh.

Fun Parkland course

Picked up a great hot deal and was surprised with a very good parkland course that was a nice change of pace from all the links courses we had played. Had some excellent holes that were challenging but fair. Condition was good, especially the greens. Hilly so would suggest a buggy or electric trolley. Everyone was extremely friendly.

Course is long and tiring if you are walking and not using an electric trolley or a buggy. Many undulating fairways with some steepish climbs.
