Good test of golf.

Great course. Greens a bit soft. Good variety of holes. Well worth a visit to the sunny south east.

Beautiful course

By far one of the nicest courses I've played and from the price of it, it seems to be a brilliantly kept secret. The setting is class and as its an island the wildlife you encounter during the round is amazing. My only complaint is that some of the greens are poor, I have no idea why but a lot of the holes from 6-18 are very bumpy.. Well worth the round though all the same

As good as expected

After the amount of bad weather we had the course held up really well and the greens were running true . Course was well kept and seems quieter in terms of how many play there now which helps with playing time , will definitely go back

Good, not great

Friendly staff. Quaint, not modern. toilets in men’s locker room we’re not working properly.
Of course had a few beautiful holes, but many that looked just alike.
Greens were recently aerated and not in great condition.
We had a couple of younger guys hit into us inappropriately, as if a warning shot. We played in three hours and 46 minutes.
Overall, I would recommend it when the greens are in better shape

Good course but in decline

The course design and facilities are as good as any in Waterford however the condition, maintenance and up keep of the course could be a lot better.

Some tee boxes are very overgrown, fairways were long and uncut on some holes but the greens were in good condition.

This was on a Saturday in August and the course was busy so expected it to be better looked after. I have heard from some long time members that the course has gone downhill recently since new ownership has taken over.

This is a shame as the location and course layout is excellent.

Bang Bang

Lovely course but the clay pigeon shooting noise was very annoying. Walking down the first the banging started and continued for most of the round.
