Amazing views

Amazing views. Course was in excellent condition. You don't get views like that without having to walk up a hill or two, so yes the course is hilly, but the views and course are well worth it. We did however cheat by getting s cart and to be honest I would recommend getting one. Still 5 stars even without a cart.

For winter conditions the course played very very well, delay at start for frost, but got playing after.
This is a great challenge of golf, you have so many variations of shots and clubs, and it's a beautiful walk with outstanding views... in summer time course plays excellent. The winter price is a real bargain.

A very enjoyable days golf on our first visit to Cairndhu.

Spectacular Views and Great Golf

It was a midday tee off and a warm day with next to no wind. The fairways and greens are in lovely condition . It is a great course if you enjoy a good walk. The first 8 holes are up and down Cairndhu head on the Antrim coast line with spectacular views across to Scotland and up the North channel. The par 4 3rd hole is tough with a blind tee off over rocks. The back 9 have breathtaking views up and down the Antrim coast line. The golf was really enjoyable and club members out on the course were very friendly and helpful with guidance. My friends and I will definitely be back
