Ranger told us to leave early

There was plenty of daylight left to play the 18th but the ranger thought otherwise. Annoying if you get to 17 and then you’re told to leave when there was still enough daylight left to finish.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us feedback! While we certainly share your frustration of the time change and the loss of daylight, we do require carts to be returned 15 minutes prior to sundown for the safety of both our patrons and staff. We hope you understand and that you'll come and see us again soon!

Unreasonable Pro-shop Staff

Tried to play on a very cold and windy Sunday afternoon. Booked my tee time the day prior. The course was practically empty when I was checking in half an hour before my tee time, and remained very slow up to when I left. I was informed I would have to play with two random other players despite the course being not busy and my objection to the pairing. I left without playing. The pro-shop should take into account how busy their course is before losing customers over a very unpopular policy among golfers. This is a beautiful golf course, and my favorite to play in the area, but I will not be playing here again after this occurrence.

Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback. We understand your frustration, however, Connemara requires all players to start and play at their designated tee time. This ensures both punctual tee times as well as proper pace of play for the course. We hope you'll understand and visit us again in the future.

Great course conditions but a few impossible pin locations

Who angered the greens keeper... great conditions but #%€# there were a few impossible pin locations. Ball would roll off the green no matter how small a miss.

Much Improved

I haven’t played here in several years, but landed a Hot Deal on GN. Connemara wasn’t well maintained then, but it is in excellent condition now. The course is still relatively short which makes it fun. Very conveniently located and the staff is very friendly.

Great recovery

Tackling my bucket list to golf on all 50 states. Scheduled to play course two weeks out and 24 hours before my tee time the rains started. Approximately 3 inches of rain. Tee time was 8:45 the next day. The course was great shape, water drained very well. After 4 holes the Ranger Notified us it was no longer cart path only and use 90 degree rule. We were pleasantly surprised at how well the course recovered from all of the rain.

Staff was very friendly as were the other golfers.
