Spectacular Kilkeel at the foot of the Mourne Mountains

The course is beautiful and very well kept. The surroundings of the mountains and the sea are out of this world.
The course has challenging greens and a nice mix of tight fairways.
I’ll never forget playing, Kilkeel

Kilkeel golf course

I enjoyed it very much the only fault I can say for the first timers on the course there are a lot of blind holes and no course map on the card ( over hills and dog legs )

Kilkeel Course review

The course was in a good condition for this time of year and a good challenge. It's great to play any time of the year & we look forward to returning. Excellent scenery & we encountered a red squirrel. The lady in the shop was very friendly and helpful

Very slow play

Course in fantastic condition. Very slow play though. 4 balls would not let 2 balls play through . 5 hours for a 2 ball, waiting 10 mins at each tee box. Course over booked I think.!!

Lovely course in very good condition

Played for the first time and we all very much enjoyed it. Condition of the course was very good - lovely consistent greens. Felt the bunkers could do with some sand in them - very compacted and shallow.

Relatively wide open course and although all of our 4 ball ranged from mid-high caps no balls where lost. This, I feel helped all our 4 to score in the mid/high 30's in Stableford format, despite not knowing the course.

Staff very friendly and we enjoyed some food and beverages afterwards. Would not hesitate to return.

Good test of golf

First time I played this course I rated it as ok, ive just played it for the second time, years on and WOW, tee boxes, fairways, greens and bunkers where immaculate!! Course layout was challenging but enjoyable, we where lucky to get sunshine and no wind which made it more enjoyable. All I can say is if you like a challenge and a good test of golf play Kilkeel!!

Always enjoy

Our 4th time.olaying Kilkeel and once again we love this course, unfortunately we have never played it when it has had a decent amount of dry weather. We showed up knowing the forecast was not good. Arrives to quite a downpour it did ease had a drizzle for first 3 holes then dry ended up with shirt sleeves and sunshine. Tight course greens although had a good soaking where in good condition. Have to say the 18th is one of our favorite finishing holes around.
Like to thank one.of.the.local members who helped me fix my umbrella holder on my cart. And the lady in the shop is always so nice and helpful. We will be back.

Mature, pretty course

3rd time we have played here. Always enjoy the course. It was wet today and 2 holes were closed they let me know that before we travelled up. Even with the rain fairways and greens where in good shape. 4 ball in front were very slow and really should have been told to speed up. Local golfers and we where told they are always slow. But we did enjoy our round. Stay out of the trees which line the course and add for some great settings. The 18th is one of my favorite last holes in northern ireland. Great value and we will be back again

Great Course shame about the weather.

Despite some of worse conditions I have ever played in this is an impressive course and will return some summers day. Could not even see the mountains. Just nearly got finished before dark but still enjoyable day.
