Great Course

I was told to play this course by a few locals and they were absolutely correct. The course was in great condition, hard to read & fast greens & it has a great layout. If you are a single or two ball then try and get paired into a foursome otherwise you will find the pace of play painstakingly slow.
I highly recommend this course for the price.

Fair challenge

A nice layout - some tough approaches over water on the front nine. Greens not in the best condition for this time of year. Not an overly long course. 2 par 5s in a row at end of round makes this quirky. Enjoyable round nonetheless

Serious course

Serious course for serious golfers. Too tough for average golfer hence the slow play. Greens a bit crusty and bumpy and Sandy. Almost as if they are trying to make them fast when the grass isn't able for it.
Typical municipal bunkers. Lots of footprints and badly raked but loads of sand.
Great value for money.
This could be the best course is Dublin if more were spent maintaining it. But it is just a public golf course and as long as players remember that they'll not be too unhappy.
There seem to be enough staff there to deal with slow play but ......
It's not easy to tell highly muscled tattooed lads to hurry up!

Only play St Margaret’s if you’ve lots of time on your hands

The pace of play was awful. We had to stand and wait at every tee box and on our fairways shots, and for each green. Five hours and ten minutes! A ranger approached us at the 8th tee. We complained it had taken two hours and fifteen minutes to get that far!! He went ahead to see what the problem was. That’s the last we saw of him. St Margaret’s are obviously interested only in getting as many green fees out on the course as possible, not in the players’ experience! My buddies and I vowed never again, not even if we got it for free!!

A good challenge for all levels

Enjoyed this course. We’ll set up and in good conditions for winter. No temporary greens which is a bi plus. Front nine harder than back with some nice water holes. Greens in good condition. Will play again.

Cold weather

Good course but painstakingly slow play

Slowness of play really took away from enjoying the outing, especially as I had brought two friends as my guests, both of whom were excellent golfers but they got quiet upset at the slow pace of play. This was doubly annoying as the wind was noticeably cold when you're standing around so long waiting to take your next shot. The Course Ranger did come when we phoned at the 6th or 7th hole to try to do something about it. The delays arose from two sets of 4 players in caddy cars. So, while the course itself is great, if I'd know the play was going to be so slow I think I would have gone to some other course. In that sense I didn't at all get value for my 90EUR.

Lovely Par 3s

Pleasant course. Would have looked nicer if all water features had water but many were dry. Some lovely par 3s. Only complaint was two guys playing out of a buggy with one set of clubs were very slow. I passed them walking with a trolley and they started 15 minutes ahead of me.

Superb final hole

Second time around this fabulous course and I’m still in awe with some of the holes on this course.
If you get an opportunity, play it as you won’t be disappointed.
The final hole Was so tough, especially as the fairway all plays toward the water hazard and demand plenty of respect.
A wonderful golf course and facilities.

Nice course. Good value

Played the course a few times and this was best I’ve seen it. Great value for money.

Downside was it took almost 5 1/2 hours due to a society ahead of us. Painfully slow. Luckily the weather was decent.

Will defo return but if i see a society ahead of me I’ll cry!!!
