A true links course
I have played this course twice once in the wind and the other on a calm day ,on the first day if you did not keep the ball down you had a job and a have to find it again so I used Only a five iron of the tee for most shots off the back foot and eight irons off the fairways lots off run up shots I thoroughly enjoyed myself and only lost two balls scored in the low nineties Well pleased
The next day a different course not so much wind so could get the big stick out now and again ten shot different score
The course is a real gem ,the par threes very tricky some long par fours and a couple of fives
I would recommend this course providing you can hit straight shots or you will be very tested especially in the wind
Challenging course when wind is up.Few interesting par 3 holes
To say that it was enjoyed would be an understatement. It may not be in the top tier of irelands links but its pretty good. For starters the greens are real gd. V clever run offs which makes your 2nd shots n wedge play very interesting. I could only imagine in the summer months they would be fast n true. A couple of quirky par 3'd namely the 8th n 16th. Short n tricky not like some modern links. Tees are nice but i found it confusing around the sixth as to where i was going. I found sone of the par4's a little bland but thats a hard mix to get right.
Scenically this course is majestic and it doesnt get any better. The tide was high when i played and the water was up bezide me. For 10 euro it was fab. As for an earlier review comparing it to ballyliffin. Not quite but it is what it is and the couse management make the most of it. I will be back many times om sure.
Well managed, testing, scenic course.
Played here in the winter months and stayed dry underfoot. Challenging course with tight fairways and testing rough, Lots of tough bunkers but with good quality sand, The staff and patrons are friendly and offer helpful advice.Some times the tee positions can be confusing and the greens obscure otherwise reasonably laid out. A summary map on the back of the card would be a great help.
North West Golf Course
Easy walking course ideal for beginner/high handicapper or short hitter. Lovely scenery. Greens and bunkers were great features. Course layout lacks in variety. Not for the links purist but at 10€ it was a bargain. Over €25 would be too much for this course.
An real gem. Almost the equal of nearby ballyliffin in quality, surpassing it in views and a 1/4 of the price. The greens where excellent and true. For slicers there is a lot of OB on the right. The bunkers are proper links style and if hit in them take your medicine and get out asap if you are lucky.
