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 nice people

Excellent course and really helpful staff

Friendly and courteous

Ate afterwards and food was excellent

Only minor issue was charge for towels

Please don’t do this ... it’s cheap and overall experience was too good to be disappointed by such an unnecessary expense

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!!!

Enjoyable experience overall

Very pleasant staff, efficient and helpful in the pro shop.

A few years since I played the course so noticed a huge difference in the lay out. Much easier for amateurs now and for the better. Course is still a good test of golf.

Would recommend the club to all golfers.

Thank you for the experience.

St Margerets in the sun

Played with a Norwegian and two Dutch , slow round but great weather. Course was in great nick apart from a few bumpy greens. The staff are always super friendly here, shame we got in too late for a beer. Some fabulous holes on this course always worth the visit.

Didnt actually play

I clicked on a link to book a time for Saturday but when I received the confirmation email I had been booked in for Tuesday 16th at 11:40 - 5 minutes after I had booked it. I called the course who said they could not do anything about it and to contact Golf Now. I could not amend my booking as it had moved into my "Previous Rounds" section of the website. Sent some emails to Golf Now but just got automated replies offering no help whatsoever. Called the course again to see if there was anything they could do for me, again, they said no. Will be unsubscribing from Golf Now and will not be playing St Margaret's again after this experience

Windy weather

Super Slow

We played on a Saturday morning and took a little more than 5 hours to complete the round. Unfortunately we were stuck behind a group of society golf and the Marshall did little to nothing to speed up the pace. The course itself is nice and so is the club house.

Cracker!

Haven't played the course in years and I can't explain why having played last weekend. Great layout and the course was in smashing condition. Well marshalled and really good greens. A really tough but fair test of golf and will definitely be back soon

Worth While

Teed off at 18:20 expecting it to be quite but the pace was very slow.

They had just sanded the greens, which they didn't make us aware of, and these played very slow.

I was also surprised at the cost of a biggie - 30 euro. Which is about 10 above the odds.

Having said that it is well worth playing.
