Most challenging course in Westmeath

Absolutely love this course. If it were closer to my home, I would join as a member.
Conditions of the greens can be hit or miss if you play in the evening, but that’s about all I can fault.
So much variety on the holes. Brilliant par 3s and challenging drives to get into position.
Best course in Westmeath for me.

Nice course

This course is nice, some of the views are very nice. There are some great holes but there are a handful of pokey holes, ie 7 iron layup to the corner followed by a wedge to the green. The quality of greens were good but some were maybe too undulated, no flat putts at all. The biggest criticism though would be the tee boxes, they were badly dug up in places and the grass was long, they need to be sectioned off and repaired. It must have been a difficult summer re.maintenance but the tees need looking at. Staff were very nice. Overall nice round and at 20euro worth it.

Fabulous course, no bland holes. Highly recommend. It was a 1 hour spin for us to get to it but it was certainly worth it. Not your typical up and down parkland. Without doubt the best value about

Gem

Picked the course solely for location. Never heard of it before. We were pleasantly surprised. Firstly, it's quite a long course. It's quite challenging, well layed out and maintenance is adequate. Be aware there currently is no off course facilities.

The. Club has just come through receivership and under new management.

I would highly recommend it.

No issues with ethier the course or the staff. Infact the staff are really nice and very friendly. The changing facilties are very poor and dirty. Once finish a round I like to shower and eat at the course if possible. Due to the uncleaness of the changing rooms this was not possible.

Very good course

This is a very well kept, challenging course. Greens are very well protected by water and bunkers. Par 3s are all tricky. Greens are in perfect condition. Course is never overly busy midweek.

I would not go out of my way to play this course.

I would not play this course ever again if I had my way. It had holes squeezed in where they simply should have one.

A gem!

I've probably played Rathcore more times than any other course over the last year, simply because it's a hard place to stay away from. For hole variety and course condition its very hard to find anything better for around the same price (€20-€25 euro). Some glorious holes over water across undulating Meath countryside. The 18th is a fantastic closer. Greens in good nick at the moment too. Difficult to fault Rathcore.

The course has great variety

Great variety of holes with water lurking to catch the wayward shot. We played in excellent weather conditions and found it to be a tough but fair course.

Interest and challenge all the way

I played this course on a beautiful Saturday in September. The staff were friendly and helpful (as always in Ireland). The course isn't a monster in terms of length, but the design is excellent in using the natural contours. The greens were true, but with some subtle slopes which meant that you had to putt well to score. The standout holes were the two par 3s on the back nine (11 and 16) which made superb use of a wetland area. Much more enjoyable than the Montgomerie at Carton House, which I played the following day, but just as challenging and at half the price!
