Montgomerie

First thing to mention is this course is not for those who want to carry and might struggle to get round. We used a buggy and it was still hard going. The undulations, and the distance from green to tee is ridiculous. The course was swapped around last year, original front 9 now the back 9. The walk from 9 to 10 alone could take you 10 minutes. Policy is to double up tee times, so 4 balls constantly. Buggy policy is you must stick to paths, resulting in parking buggy and walking to your shots with 3 clubs in hand. Some of the paths are a good distance from fairways. Pace of play was horrendous, took just under 3 hrs for 9. Course is quite short, very much a plotting course but in very good condition. Greens looked like they had been dressed in last week or so but very quick and great condition. In reality I think resort golf isn’t for me, but don’t be put off it’s your thing. Course was ok, not one to return to, but just take into account the layout and pace of play.

Dangerous, poor value

After the rain we have had we expected wet conditions, but for the price we were charged we expected it to be playable. The course was a saturated bog. It was dangerous to walk on any slopes, and for anyone familiar with the course, this is the majority of it. Balls were disappearing in fairways, bunkers had weeds in. All in all a terrible experience

Poor conditions

After paying £69 each for a round it was very disappointing that the bunkers were not maintained at all. The verges around the bunkers were overgrown and not nice to play from. Not many signs showing next tee. Luckily we played with a member who know.

Terrible customer service!!!

Loved the course and the set up. However on arrival I checked In at the pro shop not to be told we were saying in a 4 ball! We walked down to the first tee 5 minutes before tee off and watched 2 people tee off thinking play was slow to then be told we are in a four ball and are playing with the two gentlemen we watched tee off. We then were told we can't play the first hole even though it wasn't our fault! For a 5* resort very poor!!!

Great day out

Fantastic course and thoroughly enjoy the day there. Speed of play was a bit slow but the course Marshall done everything he could to speed that up. This is a long course so I’d advise hiring a buggy unless you’re up for the walk. Will definitely be returning soon

Fantastic course with questions ??

If I was rating the course tee to green it was faultless, fairways greens and bunkers all immaculate. It was my wife's birthday and we played with our 11 year old daughter who play off 11 & 23 and myself so all very regular golfers, green to the next tee at times was pure torture !! I understand that to have such amazing holes there will be an element of walking but it did become hard work and did effect our golf due to exhaustion. We followed a 4 ball in buggies and they held us up all round due having to walk across fairways and keep to buggy paths( which is under stable to keep the fairways do good) ... would I like to play it ? YES ... would I walk NO ... would I take a buggy No ... a tough decision if We want to play s fantastic course again !!!!

Cracking course. Buggys slow down play to crawling speed possibly something which needs to be addressed as there was quite a wait on some tee boxes which nearly spoilt the day.
