Absolute Gem

Played Headfort's new course on 5/4/17. I was surprised by how dry the course was in comparison to other nearby courses where balls are plugging quite badly on the fairway. We had no such issues at Headfort, drainage is obviously superb. The course, as is well known, is one of the finest parkland courses in the country. Every hole presents a unique challenge. Water does come into play on a lot of holes, which I enjoy. Greens are faultless, which is a testament to staff as other courses in the area are still a bit 'wintery' looking. Staff were very friendly and food afterwards in the beautiful clubhouse was delicious and very affordable. Cant speak highly enough of this course, will definitely be back again and again.

Well presented course with a nice flow of holes

Enjoyed playing here very much the weather and condition of the course helped. The greens were in great shape for the time of year and a lot of work going on clearing leaves from fairways as well which makes life easier finding those off centre shots. It seems to be a well managed and organised club at all it's levels. Well worth the drive from Dublin to play.

Good parkland

Well maintained. Nothing unexpected. Greens good. You must be below some as there is no way ball will stop.

Good value for money. No issues with tee time booking or on arrival. Even managed a later starting time to enable us to have a coffee before starting. Would recommend.

Fantastic parkland up there with the best course in the country. The only problem was nobody in pro shop or club house when we arrived to check in

Stunning Course!!

Has to be one of the very best golf courses in Ireland. Stunning design, beautiful views and very well maintained. If there is one criticism, I would say the bunkers could do with the stones taken out of them, but the course in incredible and great value for money. Pro in pro shop could do with taking a few happy pills though, let's the rest of the facilities down when you don't get such a friendly welcome. Once out on the course and it's heaven

Beatriful Course

We got a great deal for €20 each (two ball) pre paid direct from GolfNow to play the old course. When we arrived we were told that the greens had just been cored and sanded a couple of days previous. We asked about playing the new course instead and we were allowed for a small supplement of €15 each. The total of €35 each was still a great deal, and we were slotted in the middle of an open competition.

The new course was a pleasure to play and absolutely gorgeous, I'd highly recommend this course as one of the best parklands I've played. I'll be back to play the new course again and have a look at the old one too.

We had a bit of banter with one of the green keepers too, be prepared for the Meath mans wit!
