Cancelled on arrival

Arrived at the course to be told the booking was not on the system, however it was still available on their website? The man behind the counter was extremely ignorant,
Would avoid, plenty of other quality courses in the surrounding area with capible staff.

Surprisingly Hilly

Got a good hot deal price and happy weather was good for November in Northern Ireland. Disappointed 1st 4 holes closed , no mention of this , no apology or alternative mentioned by pro shop. Also off mats on most hole even though tee boxed looked in perfect condition, had to hunt for tee matts several times. course was a challenge and surprisingly hilly ,but some great views also.Usual gripe of terrible signage, how hard is it for clubs to have a next hole arrow, especially at the 9th , there is a tenth hole sign but only after you’ve went under a tunnel . Overall enjoyable ( even though we played terrible)

The course was very scenic and the greens were in great shape. If it's your first time playing it, you will certainly need someone there with you that knows the course as there are some blind shots.
Aside from holes 7-9 which are by the water and can be difficult with a lot of wind coming off the coast, the course is fairly easy. You can definitely go low if you get the speed of those very fast greens.

A Gem

This place is always good I highly recommend it.

A couple of risk and reward holes make it great fun.

If it were my club I'd swap the front 9 to be the back 9 but it's a little cracker of a course

Enjoyable experience

Had a very enjoyable round of golf at Carnalea GC. Course was in very good condition and some interesting and tricky holes made for an enjoyable round. Some of the holes are quite hilly but similar to other courses in the area.
Views over Belfast Lough are fantastic.
Would definitely recommend the course.

Tale of two nines

Front nine running by the sea are spectacular with greet sea views. We were lucky the weather was stunning and we could see for miles. The course was in great shape too, tee to green well kept and challenging though not in length in placement. Back nine more parkland style with some views of the sea, especially on the last. Quite unusual that the 18th finished so far from the clubhouse?
At the 19th there was no food, so that was the only disappointment.
