Hollow core and sanded greens

I have played Powerscourt 3 times and it is a fair test and enjoyable . On Saturday I played it and the greens were hollow cored and sanded . This was not advertised in advance of web booking nor was it stated when we were checking .

The pace of play was terrible too , we were a three ball and were held up by a very slow four ball until
They finally let us play through at 11 (we let a two ball through on 6th hole)

To be charged 55€ for green fees in March when the course was so unplayable and not to be forewarned is very disappointing - smacks of sneakiness

Disappointing experience

Disappointing as greens unplayable

Have played the course 3 time’s but this morning it was very disappointing. The east course had all greens sanded and hollow cored , making them virtually unplayable.

It should have been advertised prior to booking of so would not have played and picked somewhere else

Also to charge €55 for When a course is in this shape and not make it clear at point of booking is really really poor .. feels a bit sneaky

Westworld

I had never played at Powerscourt before so I wasn't sure which course to play so I consulted Mr Kevin Markham. Well his book "Hooked" anyway. The west it was. Even though I had pre booked the west the dutiful lady in the pro shop said I could play either course & informed me that the west course was a little soft underfoot tha the east. Despite this I stuck to Mr Markham's word & headed for the first tee on the west. The 1st sets the tone for the day. Not too difficult off the tee but lengthy enough with a wonderfully shaped green. The 4th, 6th, 7th, 10th, 11th, 15th, 16th, 17th & 18th are the stand out holes and the rest have plenty of elevation change & clever bunkering to keep you on your toes. I really liked the 15th with the tall pines shaping the hole up to the highest point of the course then free wheeling from there all the way back to the clubhouse. The course condition was superb considering the amount of rainfall lately. Definitely a playable venue all year round. You will 3 putt here but it doesn't seem to hurt the same at Powerscourt. The stunning scenery must softeen the blow.

Scenic Course

This is a lovely property that is worth visiting even if you don't golf. The two courses are very nice but the West course will definitely provide you with a great workout if you decide to walk it.
Great condition, great course & great views, well worth playing.

Fantastic golf course

A great golf course. Eveything is perfect a part from the 18th hole. The 18th green is poor. It should be moved.
Few things to improve the overall experience:
1. Add a bucket of water in the practice area to clean clubs
2. Add green speed in the clubhouse
3. This kind of place needs to have trackman available on the driving range

Excellent layout in lovely condition

Not the first time to have played the West course, but always very enjoyable. Great, if challenging, layout with various punishments for poor or wayward shots. Sand was well maintained in (the many) bunkers but recent rain made it extraordinarily heavy to get out of.Greens good but speeds varying. My playing companion went for a buggy which is not my usual choice but certainly left me a lot less tired than I would otherwise have been, it's a long and hilly course.

Great day out

We had a great round on the west course. The layout and design of the holes is fantastic and the views are incredible. We stayed for some food after but could have eaten it twice we were that hungry though the food itself was very tasty. Over food we discussed returning so it definitely comes with our recommendation.
