Good course but needs a makeover
I always wanted to play this course having driven past it so many times. The course itself was quite good but it is in desperate need of some TLC. It seems as though all the attention is now on lough erne and they've let it go somewhat. The lakes or lack there of are almost all bone dry which leaves a dire look on the course. The riverbeds were mostly bone dry too and the bridges around the course all need a lick of paint. It looks like they haven't been looked after in years. A lot of the tee boxes were uneven and had very little grass to speak of on them.
So the course itself is quite nice and has a good layout to it but it could do with some love put in to it to make it a better course.
Risky Dirty fun at Castle Hume
This is a strange one. There is a great layout here with some strong holes and nice views. The greens weren’t bad to putt on once you got on them. However, a few issues.
I once accidentally wanted onto an army firing range. The quality of golfer here and layout meant that the shouts of fore send golfers flying for cover, great to watch.
My face was like a 3 mile jockey in heavy ground as the tees exploded mud as I crushed the ball off the tee.
Now you’ll say I should have clubbed one extra but it was frustrating hitting good shots and plugging on the front of a green.
Should have listens to the pro who told us to play another course. This could be a very good course but my advice is to play the Faldo twice unless there has been a couple of dry weeks.
The course itself was a really good test of golf.
The condition of the course was absolutely ridiculously wet. On at least 3 occasions 2 of our 4 ball hit great drives and lost them due to being plugged on the fairway.
Two greens were completely water logged and the majority weren’t much better. I guess we knew something was up when we couldn’t hire buggies as the pro told us it was to wet. The course should have been closed full stop, no questions asked. We came in after 13 mucky holes. Very disappointing.
But if it had have been anyway dry it would have been a pretty good course.
Designed well over small area
Not impressed....designed well over a small area, used to playing more challenging courses like Rathcore, Headfort & Farnham.....doesn't hold a candle to any of the above mentioned.
