First time playing, ready to T off 1st hole and a Gentleman called Bill who is a member kindly offered to play a 3 ball with us and show us around the course what a gentleman very welcoming best course ive played at so far. Made a great contact and will def be back again.
1st time at the Blackwood
Really enjoyed this course a bit mucky in places and greens quite slow but expected in winter, held up a bit on the front 9 but opened up on the back, would love to get back out in summer
We booked a two ball but on arrival was paired with another pair of strangers. Halfway round one of the strangers informed us that his 2 daughters have COVID-19, which forced me and my brother to walk off the course. We considered the pairing with strangers unexceptable amid the pandemic
Started our round at 2.30 didn't finish until 18.45, where we just about made it back with light. Never mind the people behind us and people before them. Course management very poor worst I've seen. Turned up and there was cars parked on grass verges so straight away we knew it was too many people. At every tee box from the second through to 18 we where having to wait on people teeing of before us. There was just far to many people on the course. Then around the 10th hole a 4 ball asked could they play through as they where playing a cup match! On a Sunday while its open to public? To me it's the type of club that will ram its course with no care for the amount of golfers on it and the pace the game is getting played at. Fill the course and take their money in my opinion, and leave them to deal with it.
First time playing the bigger course at Blackwood and absolutely loved it.
Fun & Challenging Course (However be careful of the pricing)
I've played Blackwood at least half a dozen times, and used their practice facilities as well. The par 3 course is a fun way to practice your low iron to wedge game. The Hamilton course (the big course) has a combination of challenging holes and forgiving holes. You have to certainly pick your battles which I see as the definition of a good course lay out.
The reason for this review is more for the GolfNow prices.... I have found great deals in the past for other courses, but I'm not sure what happened with Blackwood...... When I play with a member the cost is 15 pounds, and when I call the pro shop to book directly (without a member) i pay 25 pounds. The "HOT DEALS" on GolfNow is 27 pounds and the regular price is over 30 pounds! Hopefully these prices will be amended, until then make sure you book directly with the pro shop.
Blackwood Hamilton Course
Great course. Very busy day so play was slow, other than that you couldn’t fault it. Good value for money.

First time here. Fairways lush, greens fast. Some lovely holes and plenty to keep you interested. Well worth it.
1st time playing,great day weather pro shop course conditions all superb,brilliant online deal only downside bar closed at 4 pm,didn’t get a drink
The Blackwood - Best Course in Bangor
I was very impressed by the infrastructure at Blackwood. They have an excellent par 3 course for golfers who are learning their craft or want to focus on short game as well as an adequate driving range to warm up on.
The Hamilton is a great course with some difficult tee shots and challenging par threes. It would be a test for golfer's of all ability as there is a lot of opportunities to get yourself into trouble. A fantastic club house restaurant and bar are for when you finish. I would definitely recommend.
Course is in great condition
Fair test of golf. In very good condition. Thoroughly enjoyed
Course is in great condition
Playing really well from tee to green. Greens are immaculate and not particularly fast so you can afford to go for putts. Highly recommend. Enjoy!
Course is in great condition
Great day out. Course in great condition from tee to green and is a fair test of golf. Only slightly spoiled because play was slower than normal due to it being captain's day. Pro shop friendly and helpful and did me a good deal on some balls. Will play again.
Really enjoyed the course, ate in the restaurant before going out, ladies were really helpful friendly and food was good and service was quick, really enjoyed the course the walk to the first tee through trees sets you up for the course, well laid out well presented and then you get to the eight to be greeted with fantastic views over belfast and the hills in between framed with the mountains in the background, really enjoyed the day, helped that I shot 2 over,
Really enjoyed the day.
This course it's a wee gem great layout and a good challange. With all the rain we've had it in great order . Will be back soon. Cheers
Nice, very nice
We liked this course alot. Weather was good for time of year. Course in good condition. Only fault, it was holding alot water in a few places, especially on the first green. Would definitely play again though.
Good day, some parts sort from all the rain so extra club needed to get the distance, however the weather was perfect , good day out !
Great day out
