Tough 9 Holes!

Not an easy course but enjoyable and excellent value for money.... You need to be straight off the tee.. If not bring plenty of golf balls!

Bann course

Fantastic 9 hole. Probably best 9 hole I've ever played.
Stunning views, course immaculate, blind tee shots, small greens it has everything. A hidden gem.

Northern Ireland links jewel

Don't let this short yardage fool you into thinking this little jewel will be a pushover. Over 150 years old, the course record is only 5 under. Strong wind is prevalent most of the time, and you're playing up and down thru the links. Missed fairways and greens leave difficult recoveries.

I just finished playing the course.I didn't realize there was 2 courses there. My golfnow reservation said 18 holes. Which lead me to believe it was a 18 hole course. It was only 9 and the guy said we could play it as many times that day . I don't think they have weed killer here because a lot of daisy like weeds in the fairway which helped disguise your ball . Pace was fantastic because no one was playing this . Very disappointed.

Having played this course I'd have to strongly disagree with this review.

For a cheap pick up course it's great, one star isn't fair. I'd give you 1 star for your booking abilities

Perfect way to sharpen your skills !!!

We played this course on Sunday and it was in fantastic condition. Only fault we could find or complain about was hitting off winter matts at the par 3’s aside from that, a great day out getting ready for the season ahead. Tough tough challenge with narrow fairways, heavy rough and small narrow tricky greens all in great condition. We will definitely be back “the best value for £16 you will spend on a round of golf at this time of the year”

Don’t book a t time and expect to get out

Myself and playing partner prebooked and arrived ahead of time. Long story short, a lot of people in front paying for bann course, my turn to book in and we are told everything good your first t. Get to first t, a 4 ball, a 3 ball, 2 4 balls and a 2 ball. We asked a few guys who said u don’t really need to book. 40mins later we t’d off. After a very enjoyable game Pro guy said “ what did you want me to do, I didn’t know”. He did know I watched him take everyone’s money then say to me your the first out. In a nut shell, pro shop not very professional. I didn’t really expect that much could have been done, but, come on, “ I didn’t know, nobody told me”. First impressions last, unfortunately this is my first and last time playing there.
