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.
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!!
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!
Course for this time of year was in good shape.
Greens running nice and fairways well looked after.
Fella in the pro shop very friendly and helpful!
Keep the good work up!
Course is in very good condition for the time of year. A proper test of golf in the wind. Great fun. Thoroughly enjoyed it.
Great as always
Love the place. True test of golf. Cannot recommend highly enough. Considering the amount of rain we have had the course was in great condition. Love it. Friendly staff in the pro shop and nice pint afterwards!
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
Brilliant as ever
Despite the hot weather we've been having the greens are immaculate. Clearly been getting plenty of water because despite the fairways being bouncy the greens are receptive and you can go at them. Course is so dry at the moment it has a links feel about it. Stunning as always!
Great day's golf
Course was in fantastic order, great value for money and Andy the owner was very hospitable, great pint of Guinness afterwards too !!!!! Would highly recommend Scrabo, challenging but fair on a great layout....
Brilliant as ever
Course is in great condition. Fast pace of play for a Saturday afternoon. Course is firm and dry which makes shot selection tricky. Land it short and let it run to the green would be a tip particularly for 13 and 18.
Course is in great condition
Course is playing really well. Dry and firm. Loads of run on the fairways. Greens are a good speed and will no doubt get quicker. Always love playing Scrabo and will be back.
A must play course, at least once !
Scrabo has an interesting layout on top of one of the highest hills in the area. Unfortunately it was extremely wet and difficult to walk. Would like to play it on a nicer, dryer and warmer day. Relatively good condition for this time of year. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Food was good in restaurant after the round.
Scrabo golf club is about 20 minutes outside Belfast on the outskirts of Newtownards never judge a book by its cover is a very true cleshy when it come to Scrabo golf club. On arrival the car park is quite deceiving of what this club has to offer.
If you don’t like hills then this course is not for you. Checking in with pro shop was friendly and a pleasant experience efficient and also well stocked if it is your first time lots off friendly advice and tips. The course itself is outstanding with plenty of challenges for even the most seasoned golfer. Course management is a must there are lots of hazards just waiting to trip you up from bunkers to guaze bushes to rolling hills and elevated greens and challenging pin positions. The views from around the course are stunning even if your golf is off the scenery more than makes up for it. After 18 holes you know you have had a good work out . On course the 4 ball in front keep us right and members came up and asked us how we got on. I would recommend this club and course to any golfer who wanted a great round of golf and some outstanding sencery add in I look forward to playing the course again when it is a bit warmer
What an experience. First impression was great the views were breath taking. Club looked alittle dated. Pro shop was well stocked. The first hole was a treat to play. This would have been the most difficult course iv played since I began playing if the temporary tees weren't in use. Tight gorse, elevated tees and greens there was hardly any flat parts to the fairways. So alot of ball above and below feet. I gave up on the driver after loosing my 4th ball. A real test for your golf game. Friendly members showed us about. And I loved that every hole was different and asked many questions of my abilities. I will be back in spring and hope the greens will be open. Tee boxes and fairways well mentained. Reasonably dry compared to amount of frost and rain. But we'll worth it. But get a buggy!!!!
Excellent course well laid all the holes different greens were the best I have seen for ages Superb deal I fully recommend this course
