Summer Greens?

Had we known the greens were hollow tined, we would not have played here. We did not expect the greens to be hollow tined in mid-summer. 40 Euros was an excessive green fee for such greens.

Great course in excellent condition

Helpful pro when we arrived. Bit of a walk to the championship course but worth the trek. Great course with some really challenging holes. The fairways and greens were in great nick. Great scenery on the way round. Only downside was slow play from two groups ahead who wouldn’t let us play though. Thankfully they only played 9. Hope to return

Classic parkland

We played the Old course on a windy and wet Saturday morning. Course in great condition for the time of year and greens were running smoothly. Tee boxes were in poor condition but to be expected. Great value for money and will be back to play in the summer months when the trees are in bloom.
Would recommend

Great value, great course

We arrived and were greeted by the assistant Pro who was really friendly and helpful. We had a great chat and made feel at home. The buggies we rented were brought directly to the back of our cars and again asked if we needed any help at all. This was really nice to see as we have been to other courses where you are treated like a number but not so in Headford. Brilliant

Poor staff

Don't book a hot deal on this course because the reception we got is they don't want you there. Late for tee time and tried calling several times on the website number but engaged. Got there and explained and was told no even when there was nobody on the tee for 15 mins while we tried to book another. Pro shop staff seen we booked a hot deal and just said no.....bad form
