The course was not very busy. Couldn't get rental clubs because they were all out so he put together a set Fred Flinstone used so I could play. Did not charge for clubs and was very helpful. I should have phoned ahead. Would definitely go back.

We found the going very rough as Ireland was in a state of flood so it's hard to blame the course. There are some great holes on this course. I feel it is much better in the summer. Course catering was closed and the attached hotel had a wedding which meant that food wasn't immediately available - there was a waiting list for a table in the terrace lounge which was disappointing and so we decided to go into Trim for our lunch. It's a friendly course and the staff were also very helpful. I'll be back when the sun shines.

I stayed in the holiday homes on site and played three times. This is a fantastic course and excellently maintained. Greens have character. Well placed bunkers (as I found on many occasions) with loads of soft sand, fairways were well maintained, generous, but lay in wait for those who tried to bite too much off the tee. Rough was forgiving enough, but some long dense rough on the par threes. Water features on many holes and the last four holes are the best sequence I've played recently. At 25euro midweek, this represents great value.<br/> I played on Mon, Wed and Fri, and each day there was a full team cutting every green, fairway and on two of the mornings, the rough. Every bunker was racked and greens watered. All before first tee off at 8am.

My only gripe was the office staff: I arrived on Sunday and enquires about tee times. I was told that there was nothing available for Monday AM, but could get me out in the PM for 25e or Tues - Fri for 30e. I told them I was a resident, but no discount. Went to my holiday home and checked on-line. Tee times were available before 9AM on Monday, and the price for Tues - Fri was 25e. I checked Golf Now and their price was 26e, claiming a discount of 25%. Moral; check all methods. I used Golf Now for Monday and the Golf Club website for Wed and Fri. Very user friendly.

We were a bit unlucky as it was very windy the day we played but we still really enjoyed the round. The wide fairways and big greens. Greens had plenty contours and receptive. Bunkers were in good condition and very consistent. The fairways were like a carpet. Enjoyed the challenge of the par threes especially the 18th.

I played Knightsbrook in early December on a crisp, sunny day. Tee boxes and fairways were in very good condition, while the greens would have loved some TLC. Notices to repair pitch marks seem to be largely ignored. There are four par threes with accuracy and club selection very important due to water hazards lurking to receive any poorly judged shots.<br/> Overall I found it a well designed facility and I can't wait to return.
