Needs to be better marked

Overall a good round as a three ball. Were slightly late but allowed to play anyway.
Markings on the course are poor , especially for a course with so many blind shots. Most holes only had a 100 yard marker in the fairway and OOB stakes.

A good course but signage to tee boxes and lack of yard markers lets it down.

Windy weather
Walked

Tough, but excellent

Played this course on 28/5/19. It's a tough course, and a bit of a hike, up and down steep hills. There are no flat, open fairways. They undulate with little hills and hummocks, slope to the left and to the right, with a lot of narrow spaces to aim for.....it's not an easy hit round here. Also, being so high above sea level, the wind plays more than a minor role. But the course seems to be looked after extremely well. It was in excellent condtion - the fairways were cut neatly and close...and the greens were like snooker tables - ball runs very true.
Overall, I would highly recommend this course - it's not for the faint-hearted....but it is excellently well kept and presented...and if you can bag a discount rate, so much the better!!

Hidden gem!

Most beautiful golfcourse I have ever played. Great views, lovely holes and really friendly members. Hole 1 is within top 100 of Ireland's most beautiful holes. The course is the 7th most difficult course of Ireland.
You have to play Scrabo when you are in Belfast!

A true test in the wind

If you think you're better than you are Scrabo in the wind will put manners on you. Great course that you have to think your way round. It's not how far it's how many and there are no pictures on a scorecard. All joking aside Scrabo is brilliant. Pro was very helpful and good craic. Greens were great and you could attack them because they were soft. Go and play it!

Not a long course by today's standards but the small greens and narrow fairways make it a challenging course.
Spectacular views from just about everywhere around the course
