My favourite course

My favourite course
This is a hidden gem and I have played it several times even though it’s quite a distance from me the course is well laid out and has. some spectacular views . It is very good value the club house looks great the availability of food however is hit and miss but I will be back again again and again. Thanks to all concerned with maintaining the course and other facilities

great layout but would benefit immensely from the fairways being top dressed and over seeded -- grass coverage is a bit sparse in places but this wouldn't stop me playing it again

Beautiful setting

Course in very good condition, championship course layout feel. Only negatives are bunkers and grass mounds around them need work, lots of weeds and old wild grass, doesn't look right in the middle of lovely green fairways or around well maintained greens

Top class course

This is the most rewarding golf course set in beautiful surroundings by the riverside , it has wonderful features and is very well maintained. It’s ideal for a group outing The staff is very helpful and friendly and the changing rooms and clubhouse of a very high standard I have always enjoyed playing golf and socialising at this club.

Really nice course

Really nice course and was looking forward to playing it again but was disappointed to find that the greens had been hollow tinned!!!
It’s very unfair to sell on line when the greens greens so bad!!! Surely they could refrain from selling tee times for a few weeks to let the greens recover!!!
Maybe a warning on line if they must keep selling would be a fair option!!!

Hidden Gem

The entrance to the driveway is in the middle of the city, so obvious, we missed it first. :)
Pristine greens. Excellent maintained course. Embedded within the Nature with very old trees and a small river. Impressive Clubhouse with friendly staff.
The course can easily keep up with the 'big names' but is way cheaper! :) Good for us. We will visit again.

Excellent course with a brilliant back 6 holes

The holes in Bunclody start with really good holes but it is really from 14 to 17 where the course excels, with 15 and 16 possible as good golf holes that you get anywhere. I have played approx 150 courses and I would highly recommend adding this course to your list of must play courses.
