Worth playing
Royal Portrush Dunce links are the famous ones. This course is right by the side of it so in many ways presents similar challenges. Maintained to the same high standards but accessible to the high handicapper. You can use the practice facilities at the main clubhouse with complimentary range balls.

They have altered this Valley course slightly, as they have lost two holes to the Dunluce Links for the 2019 (British ) Open and the present 16th is a par 5 and a better hole, in my opinion, than the old 17th which it replaces. On the downside they have lost the old 18th, par 3, but maybe after 2019, they will restore it!

Three substitute holes added after giving 3 to Dunluce Links. Great holes lost but the new ones are just as good.

Relatively benign conditions but very thick rough - almost impossible to play from in a lot of instances!

Greens perfect, a lovely course

Having missed out on playing this course several times I managed to get to play it today with a member, therefore the value for money was excellent. The new pro shop is looking excellent and the course itself was immaculate. The course has the most stunning scenery and every hole brings it own new challenge. I got to play it on a day with a smallish breeze which made the course challenging but fair. The greens ran very true the bunkers had gloriously soft sand, they were enjoyable to be in. The last hole was a little bland but from what I can see of the two new holes this course is only going to get better. The par three 14th "Calamity" is a daunting hole and I think that the stroke index may be wrong as it is S.I.16!!! Lovely challenging shot. The fifth hole which is the furthest from the club is the most stunning hole, wish I could play it every day of the week. Can't wait to play it again, especially when the new holes are in play. A course everyone must play.

First 4 holes a bit messy due to work being done on the big course but don't let it put you off, perfect place to play golf.
