What the club says: Located within a mile of the bustling centre of the city of Belfast and nestling under the shadow of the giant Harland and Wolff shipyard cranes, Ormeau Golf Club can truly be labelled “the course in the heart of the city”.

Formed in 1893, the club is one of the oldest in Ireland and today complements the exciting developments that go to make up the city’s Laganside complex. The clubhouse and course are situated on mature tree covered parkland once part of the Marquis of Donegall’s Ormeau demesne.

Golf course in the city

Flat and surprisingly spacious for a course that is in the heart if the city. it's a tuff little course. Why? I can't work it out. It appears easy enough, but always plays harder than it looks.

I will be back, as sooner or later I going to score well on this course.

For a nine hole course its always in excellent condition greens and fairways are always kept in good condition and would make some more expensive courses look very average indeed.

Interesting parkland 9 hole course. Accuracy is key. Two of the three par 3's would rival most courses. Nice greens. Can complete 9 in under 1hour 30. Give it a try.

One of the better 9 hole course's. Bit of a wait to start the back 9, maybe those finishing the front 9 should have priority.

First the negatives: Small car park. If the course is busy be prepared to look for a space! The clubhouse isn't bad, it's not the Ritz but it's nice and friendly.

The positives: The greens and fairways are like velvet. Beautifully kept, a credit to the green keepers. You'll be impressed with the walled tee boxes.

The course is 9 holes tucked away at the edge of Ormeau Park in the centre of Belfast. Not the longest but the short length is deceptive. There are some real challenges here. A 222yard par three plays more like a short par 4 for most of us. There's a 420yard par 4 that has a stunning blind drive.

The card says the the 511 yard par 5 is the signature hole, but for me the best hole is the "Wee dunt" 101 yard par 3 4th. The smallest, most undulated green on the course is surrounded by 5 deep bunkers. Pitching into such danger and coming out with a par at the other end is a pleasure.

If you're ever in Belfast on business, and find yourself with 2 hours to kill, get yourself down here. It's the best course you'll ever play for a tenner!

(BTW, on the way out I picked up my membership application form.)
