What the club says: The course is set in 220 acres of mature parkland overlooking Galgorm Castle. The castle was built in 1618 by Sir Faithful Fortescue and there can be no more inspiring setting for your golfing requirements! It is bordered by the rivers Main and Braid, together with a magnificent oxbow feature and five impressive lakes.

Good course but staff could be better.

We have now played this course 3 times are enjoyed it each time.It is certainly worth playing.However, each time the staff have been less helpful than ideal. On this occasion, having booked through teeofftimes at ?2 cheaper per round, we were asked to play with another two-ball. This is within their rights, but we played at 6pm in the evening and the course was virtually empty as we played. It felt as if they had simply wanted to make a point and the other two-ball teed off early anyway.Disappointing from such a good course.

Brilliant no wonder they host the Northern Ireland Open. Bit of work going on around course due to all the advers weather we've had this winter. Still a tough course to play. Restaurant closed at the moment due to refurbishment. However they have supplied a food Marquee at the 10th hole.

Winter conditions but course great

We had played the friday before this on winter greens because of a hard frost and thought it would be good to return and play on the proper greens.Given how wet everywhere has been the course was in great condition and the greens were excellent. Other courses on the day were still partially closed or on winter rules so this is one to keep in mind in the winter months.A good challenge and a scenic and nicely designed course.

Satisfying Course

Had breakfast in the clubhouse before starting our round and can thoroughly recommend the food. The course is mature parkland that provides a fair test of golf for all abilities. Fairways and greens were top notch. The bunkers not so much, a little compact. Practice facilities include everything you could wish for.

The practice facilities are excellent. Pro shop very good. Clubhouse excellent. I found the course marshall very helpful and friendly. The course was holding a bit of water just off the fairways after heavy recent downpours but fairways themselves were excellent. Greens ran very true and were a good, fast speed. There is good variety between holes and well placed bunkers and water hazards. I found the yardage book very useful to identify potential water penalties and OBB.

After a few days torrential rain the course wasn't in bad condition. Which was a testament to it. The greens were excellent. However I don't believe this is the great course they'd lead you to think. When I think back on the round there was no holes that stopped me in my tracks. This is simply a good parkland course very well maintained and with a golfnow discount well worth a visit and I look forward to playing it when we do eventual get good weather. Don't waste £50 on a regular green fee it's not worth it.
