A scenic 9 hole course along the shores of Upper Lough McNean. It's a long par 5 away from MacNean House and Restaurant which is the acclaimed restaurant run by Neven Maguire. Although only 9 holes, multiple tees make the front and back 9 play different. A lot of work over the winter and some investment in equipment has really improved the quality. With a low green fee, there is not much better value for money around.

Play this course each time my husband and I are visiting family in Co Waterford (on average 8 times per year) It's worth a visit just for the warm welcome from Austin, the owner and Gillian the club secretary, Can't wait for this dreadful corona virus to be over for the sake of the whole world, but it also means we will be over to West Waterford ASAP.

port salon non è molte volte inserito nei circuiti vacanze golf. invece dopo aver giocato in campi blasonati ne vale la pena. strano percorso links ma con molti saliscendi e insidie che a volte nn sono visibili, per tutti club house carina e mantenaince buna da consigliare.

Heard it was playing well and as home course was bottomless muck we decided to get a game in before all courses were closed due to Coronavirus. It didnt dissapoint. Great run on the ball for this time of year.

The Clubhouse is a big open plan, However the views from the main building over the lake are fantastic The winter bar is a real cosy spot the caterer Pieter was fantastic, the food excellent the portions generous and the cost was really good. The Practice /Warm up facilities are bit lacking. This is the best value for money in Europe for both golf food and friendliness. Now to the golf course I dont know how this place has been kept hidden. It just has to be played. there are 3 mens tees and a ladies providing a test for all handicaps. there is also a championship course. Listen to the advice of the locals when choosing your tees. Index 1 16th hole dog leg along the lake shore is fantastic as are all the par threes worth a minute to stand on championship tee for the 17th even if you playing off the other tees. The 14th and 15th holes both short dog legs provide lots of different options for playing them. They also demonstrate that length is not everything. To long par fours the 9th and 11th are top drawer as well. The 11th with water protecting the right hand side of the green is particularly good.

Killeen was a much tougher challenge than Mahonys. Beautiful setting, very hospitable will definitely recommend and play again.

Fresh from its makeover in early 2020 by renowned architect Ebert The Island has stepped up a notch from its well placed ranking # 8 in Ireland with a nice mix of holes on the front rather than the old format viz., eight par fours in a row. The opening hole is set in beautiful high dunes so this sets the scene for the astute player’s strategy over the entire course. The new par three fourth is a treat ‘postage stamp size’ with a great view over the Irish Sea which transitions you nicely through more dunes to the new lay out holes. These are some great strong new holes 5th,8th and 9th replacing the short blind holes that persisted before the very welcome routing revision for 2020. The 10th starts with the ‘road design' reminiscent of St Andrews 17th inviting the player to cut the dog-leg corner to shorten this hole. Players must play good golf to score well particularly on 12th,13th, and 14th the most memorable/devilish trio of holes on the back. The 13th is not unlike the par three Calamity in Portrush at 220 yards and trouble on the right. The 14th fairway looks very narrow but it’s a short par four so being brave take out your driver and rip it - you will get your reward -- if you pull it off! The 15th is a beautiful par five – aim for the white disk in the distance and then wind your way down through some of the most spectacular secluded dunes anywhere. Players will finish on the great par four, index one, where you can see in the distance the flag 460 yards away from the elevated tee. If you have played it before and liked the old layout you will love the five new holes on the front. You’ll yearn to go round once again to see if you can improve...
