Terrible greens

Only complaint is a big one, the greens were the worst I've seen all year. Spiked & loads of sand, every putt was pot luck.

Great golf and restaurant close to city center

This is a relatively new track, and it will develop as time go by, when trees grow to be the obstacles they are designed to be. Overall it's a great challenge, that has plenty of variety. I was a member here for two years and did not get tired playing here.
Vue restaurant is great value for money, and members and visitors alike are treated very well.
The course is always in great condition, and greens are well receiving yet challenging enough. There is plenty of room to drive the ball.
I recommend playing here.

Nice Course

I played this course in rain and windy conditions. The course was very nice with challenging holes. Greens were just aerated so my ball was always picking up sand as it was wet. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. I will definitely play this course again when I get back to Ireland.

Great Course, accommodating staff but greens need a bit work

Played this course yesterday, was a lovely course with great holes. Staff were very good because I was late and they didn't mind me teeing of a bit late. The only problem I had yesterday was slow play in front of us and they wouldn't let us play through. The greens need a bit of work though, loads of divots that haven't been repaired by players and green keepers but overall I really enjoyed the course and would go back in heartbeat to play.

Castleknock Golf Course

Played Castleknock on 04.06.15, booked it on-line with Golfnow.ie. Booked a 2 ball, when we arrived we were put out with two strangers. This wasn't a problem as they were sound lads.
The course was in super condition, fair bit of sand on greens but they were running perfectly.

Super Golf Course

Castleknock Golf Course is a testing and challenging golf course. The course is in excellent condition. Only complaint would be sticking us as a two ball in between two by four balls which meant we were waiting on most tees boxes adding at least 1/2 hour to our round. Otherwise had a super round it's a wonderful course.

Castleknock gc

Good course, greens very slow and require cutting. Very good test of golf and with some manicuring this could be a fantastic course. €30 is too expensive for midweek golf though.

Fantastic course Give a try ,

a fabulous course to play, watch out for the water folks, thers plenty of it around, and bunkers everywhere, like a bombed out city, lol, excellent fairways a pleasure to hit off, I'd recommend this course to anybody who hasn't played a round on it, give it a try you won't be disappointed at the end of the round, cheap tee times , we booked our round online for just €17 pp, that's a great teetime for this course, just 1 thing I'd recommend, ring the course before you book if you can, we got stuck behind a competition which slowed the game down for us, so I'd ring before I'd book to make sure your in the clear , there is nothing as bad as a slow round, enjoy the course folks,
