Value for Money in Galway

A nicely laid out course. Perfect for a day out. The weather was excellent, 20 degrees. Excellent course for a society. Some quirky holes. Overall would highly recommend. For 25 Euro I can't think of a nicer test in Galway.

Nice course, shame about the signage

I arrived and couldn't find anywhere or anyone to get a score card for the course map. I started my round as a solo behind 3 teens in tracky bottoms and running shoes.. They kept me behind them the until the 6th when they stopped .. I eventually got lost looking for the 9th hole. I played the 18th thinking it was the 9th. And gave up trying and went to Loughrea Spa hotel for a pint...

Loughrea was very enjoyable

The girl at the bar was very friendly. The practice green was in good condition and a fair reflection of the real greens. The fairways were the perfect length for this time of year. The course itself is wide in places to let fly but also had places were going for it was possible but not a good idea. The pace was good. All in all a very enjoyable day out. Price was also silly cheap for that standard of a course.
