Lovely course

Balcarrick is a great course in great condition. It's a pleasure to play and is very fair. I love the drivable par 4 to start both 9s. I can't fault this course in any way.
I will be back soon.

Beautiful course

Despite giving up after 10 holes due to the terribly slow pace of play, I loved this course and definitely will be back. Quite different from what you might expect of a course so close to the sea. Has a parkland feel albeit with quite a bit of water to contend with. Greens were in terrific condition for the time of year as were the tee boxes. Holes were a good challenge for a high handicapper. Look forward to my next visit when there aren't belligerent old boys playing at a snail's pace!

Nice flat track

Second time playing here, nice flat track with not too many challenging holes. Back nine tougher than front, first few holes are nice easy introduction into the course before it gets slightly more difficult. Greens is good condition.

Beautiful golf course

Third time playing this course and it never disappoints. Played in on the warmest day of the autumn and we had a great time.

Well presented course, great greens and it’s a reasonably tough test in breezy conditions.

All 4 of us shot great scores and everyone enjoyed the course. Thank you.
