  • Excellent Golf Course

    I played here a few days ago. The course was in amazing condition, greens a bit discoloured after the frosts but none the less running smooth and true. I heard today that they were voted the best parkland course in Ireland which they won last year also. Well deserved.
    I play here at least 3 times a year and always my favourite course ... don't let my club hear me talking!
