Every hole has a different view over the beautiful coastline. Course was in great condition after heavy rain, fairways had great run and greens were receptive.

One small issue: we were asked to arrive early as there was a competition out after us. We had hired buggies, arrived early, 50mins early, and there was nobody in the pro-shop. As a result we, a 4ball, ended up being late to tee off and being chased all the way around by 2balls.

Played in February but conditions were perfect. Short course with a lot of trouble if your wild. Number of holes that you can hit iron from the tee but still a test. Very nice views from all holes..

Didn't have food but man working in the process shop was very friendly and helpful.

100% if your in the area play this course.

Also, no need for a buggy, for a course build on a cliff the walk is not really an issue.

Will be back here shortly.

This is a lovely course with great view of the sea. It can be quite hilly at times, only two holes are particularly hard to walk around but mostly it's fine. Very interesting course layout and a tough challenge even though most par 4's aren't very long.

If you`re not in well body conditions I`d recommend to use a cart,partly steep uphills...some greens need at least 3 putts due to sloping situations...only disadvanage -> no birdiebook avalable.

Short in length, some of the holes are a bit on top of each other. But some cracking holes along the Wicklow coastline on a sunny day.

The course is very hilly. It's also quite busy at its centre with a lot of thuds and balls rolling into your green or fairway. Amazing views and a very challenging course all the same. Would play here again

Links golf without the high grasses. Tight tee shots keep the driver in the bag except for the par 5 pars that are more generous. 6 holes played along the cliffs on the Irish sea stunning. The greens where good but the fairways where seriously damaged with non repaired pitch marks. There are bags to repair but simply this has been left to decline. Bunkers mainly short of sand and stony making the shot into a tight green very difficult for a mid handicapper such as myself. Easy to catch it thin and over the clif!!! Enjoyable overall with good greens.

Great value.<br/> Course & greens in very good condition & great panoramic view of the cost line from the course BUT & BUT. Arrived at 2.05 ( 40 mins. before tee-off time ) to find notice on pro shop "Back in 10 mins ". HE ARRIVED BACK AT 3pm ( TOLD LATER IN CLUB HOUSE ), 12 mins after our arranged tee time, having waited there we had no time to warm up or practice the few putts.- NO APOLOGY GIVEN OR OFFERED. Had to rush to tee & found at least 10 to 15 people waiting to tee-off. NOT THE BEST WAY TO START A GAME OF GOLF AND ANY CHANCE OF SPENDING MONEY IN THE PRO SHOP LOST>

A great course in great condition. Enough variety to make you think about your shots. Coastal/ cliff top location offers some spectacular views along with a good challenge. I Would encourage anyone to go and play there, "You won't regret it!".
