Impressed!

First time playing this course and I can say it was a great experience. From reading through some of the reviews, I was a bit hesitant, but the course must have had improvements because it was in great condition. Course is forgiving with some challenges. Great price for a round. Will be back

Nice Course

Nice course, Green flags sometimes out of view but this would only cause an issue on your first round.
Like many have eluded to, distance markers would be a great help throughout the course, distance purely by eye can be very misleading.
Will definitely play here again, priceing seems slightly above what it should be. A little extra TLC and it would be a really nice course, new sand in bunkers, greens could be distinguished a little more, just finer details on the upkeep.
Overall looking forward to my next round here.....

Join Apps

This is a great little course for the money you pay. Carrying amount of challenging Undulating and flat fairways with hard (to be upgraded) greens. Management could seek to join Golf Shot, or other GPS golf apps to allow golfers to see their yardages. Out of everything, yardage marking is the poorest, and without a range finder you're a bit clueless on distace. Otherwise great course and great staff. Putting greens, or even driving range would be a killer around here as well

Good Value for Money

Some lovely holes, all they need to do is put up some proper signage directing you to the next hole. They have some adequate signage, but there were at least three occasions where Bear Grylls orientation skills had to be called upon.
Also, the index 1 hole is a very, very long par 4. Given the overall course is 71, why not make it a par 5? (That's probably me being a bit gormless about the game, though!)

Decent Course

Some very nice holes on this course. A lot of GUR areas when we played but overall a decent course for what we paid. Greens need a bit of work, fairways that hadn't GUR areas were in good order!

Only 16 holes open and to many holes cut down to par 3s. Said on the app that shorted course was month of May but wasn't fully open in middle of June. Greens need serious work

Course Under Repair

Course was shortened to 16 holes (Par 61), so right now (June 2022) not useful for handicap rounds. The renovations that are currently ongoing make the course a little too short and the greens still need renovation, once the improvements are completed. A nice course for a beginner, but not of a high enough quality to be a challenge for anyone with a handicap of under 20.

Don't bither

It's not a golf course.
It's a field with greens cut into it.
They need a good groundsman and someone to design some greens. Be better going to the range

Prosperous Beginnings

I've played this course three times now, and am very happy with it, as an amateur. It's tucked away in mountains, quite hidden from everyone so finding a tee time for a start is so simple. The members generall finsih their rounds by early afternoon, so I have been more or less been left the course to myself. They are currently renovating two holes, so it only plays 16 (Par 61) but that doesn't discount is challenging existing holes. Greens are poor, but they know this and so much work is being planned to repair this. This time next year the course should be a stomper. Membership fee is favourable as well, 750 ATM, which for Dublin is an absolute steal.

Nice course

Nice course, great value for €25, fast pace of play, nice scenery, some greens were not the best condition but understandable as it hasn’t rained in a good view days, the hills were a good challenge
