No staff in sight besides grounds staff.
The grounds staff do an amazing job with this tight interesting beach side course.
Very enjoyable for all levels of golfer, beautiful scenery.
Nice course, well layed out for a 9 hole course not to tricky for a bigginer but still challanging for regular players. Need to be accuate enough but can get away with the odd wayward one ecxept for the 6th, if you slice it or fade it to much your out of bounds and on the beach that runs the full leanth of the hole on the right. Fairways and greens immaculate greens not to fast or slow just run at a good pace. Locals and members very friendly / helpfull, will def be back to play again and would recomend playing this course.
Perfect Day At Helens Bay
We had a great golf day at Helens Bay. We teed off at 8am -the sun was shining and the course was pristine and what followed was 4 hours of a really enjoyable game of golf!
Just more from a constructive point of view: The pro shop wasn't open during the time we were there and luckily enough we had golf balls etc but feel it should be open especially for early starters. The bar / restaurant also wasn't open throughout the time we were there and once again we would have liked to have had some lunch and a drink after our golf. Hopefully these 2 issues can be resolved as I feel it would greatly enhance the experience of any other visitors playing on the course.
Golfing with Scenic views
The course is situated by the sea, at 1st tee off you will have the view of the Lough. We played at 7:30am and the weather promised to be a good sunny day.
Easy course to play on, the quality of the course is well kept especially the greens.
Very friendly staff working there.
I will return time and time again because the pace of play is quick.
Everything was closed
We arrived for our round 30 minutes early, but everything was closed. We could not get into the building or find a member of staff. So had to just start our round without score cards.
Fine 9 Hole Course
Well maintained 9 hole course on the shores of Belfast Lough, the course is short with no power five holes. As ground slopes down to the sea and therefore it's not as flat as some, but the hills are gentle. It is a very open course and whilst it's sparse trees can come into play, your ball rarely ends up in an unplayable position. Add some sunshine, this pleasant course with it's views over the Lough definitely has feel good factor. The outside perimeter holes are played in an anticlockwise loop, so make sure you control your slice, particularly at hole 6, as the out off bounds is a public beach.
