Not worth it

I got a hot deal for about 38 euro. I was neither annoyed nor delighted with the value for money. If I had payed any more, I would have been very annoyedm The high prices for this course are definitely just down to demand and location not due to the layout or quality of the course. The first 4 holes are out on a dried up, divot covered waste land. All of the bunkers are located just off the edge of the fairway, so when the conditions are calm, they are of no danger. The 10th hole is the only stand out hole. But it is followed by the 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th and 16th that are all very very similar parallel, boring links holes. The 17th is an interesting par 3 before your round is capped of by the 18th which is the worst hole on the course. The fairway is split by a big ugly mound of long grass and the green is located just beside the most dodgy looking ruff and bushes.

Excellent course. Worth 3x what we paid

A true links course that tests every aspect of your game. Great value and I couldn’t recommend it more. If there were 6 star ratings I would have given them across the board

only took us 12 years to get round to play this course !

In July 2009 we were in Dublin for a gig, (u2 360), to kill time we went out to Bull Island and went to get a beer in the clubhouse, we had such a fine welcome we vowed one day to come back and play golf here also.

Everything about our experience was 5star. From check in where there was a problem with the tour agent, booking that was sorted for us, through to the assistant pro who checked us in, perfectly managed.
The course was a very enjoyable track, none of us scored great, but with a winning score of 33 points, i was pretty happy, with alternate holes into the prevailing wind and downwind, this made for a more interesting links experience than the usual 9 out and 9 in. the final 3 holes were really great, would hate to be hanging onto a good medal score with the wind blowing into your face, and needing to nett par home.
We ate in the lounge, the food was well priced and also good quality, the service was great from the kitchen and club steward, overall we had the most warmest of welcomes to any golf club, we have ever travelled to. We will certainly return !
Thank you all

Not very user friendly

It was most confusing not having Tee numbers on each hole . No map on the score card to help visitors around the course.

Timing

Our booking time in addition to delay at course meant we only got to play 11 holes, poor value for fee paid

Nice Course

Played this course at 3.20 and just about finished before it got dark. Lovely course, in great condition. Greens weren't too hard, but in very good condition. Really enjoyable game, and I shot a good score to make it even better.

Excellent Links Experience

This was my first time on a true links course and it was a great experience. I'm sure I will play more difficult courses while I'm here but St Anne's is a true test of links golf. The conditions where normal for this time of year (overcast with a little drizzle & windy)and thank god it wasn't too windy otherwise I would have rated it extremely difficult. I'd say if you can get the Golfnow deal at 45 EUR then this course is a must.
