Memorable experience

Everything about this course was amazing . this was my first time playing golf in Ireland it was a perfect day. From breakfast to the 19th hole I could not ask for anything else . This facility has such a rich history before it was a golf course i would check it out prior to coming . I never review anything and I felt that this was a day that deserved it. My next trip to Ireland I will definitely come back

Perfect weather

Long and difficult walk, no water and no facilities on course, challenging and difficult course, but a great experience.

Played Montgomerie Course, not the O'Meara Course, so all my comments apply to Montgomerie Course. This is a very long course to walk. 4 hours plus to play, not because of slow play but because of long walk. Long distances from clubhouse to the course, and between holes. Difficult layout with deep, deep rough off the fairways, deep bunkers liberally distributed throughout the fairways and green-side. Don't expect to find balls hit into the deep, lush rough. No water or bathroom facilities on course, don't get back to clubhouse until you finish 18. A real challenging golf course. If you normally shoot in 80s, expect to have difficulty breaking 100. But it is beautiful. Winning score -14 by Paul Casey at Irish Open on this course in 2013 says something about difficulty.

Monty is awesome

Great course in great condition. Tee times could be arranged and marshalled better but frost delay had an impact on all times.

18 Holes of Fun

Set in the beautiful grounds of Carton House Estate, the Montgomery course - billed as an inland links - combines 18 holes of indvidual character into a fun-filled layout that can be played by all standards.

Each tee shot offers a safe play to one side of the fairway or a riskier option to challenge a bunker complex (many of which are invisible from the tee!) and this concept applies to the approach shot as well.

The fairway and green-side bunkers are penal, as is the long fescue grasses that frame each hole, though thankfully these only come into play on the most wayward of shots. The greens themselves are beautiful and offer no excuse for missing putts!

Finally, the staff in the Pro Shop were friendly and courteous and booked us in really quickly.
