I played Glencruitten May 2, 2011. I was planning playing golf by myself when a gentilman named Martin asked if we could pair up? i said sure. a better decsion I don't think I could have made. Not only was he local but a very good player and he also was like a caddie to me. No WAY can you play this course for the first time by your self. This is a HARD course to read for the first time. 5-6 holes are blind up hill shots where you do not know where or how large the greens are. There were times I thought to hit left and Martin said no hit right. There were times I thought I had to aim for the green (flag) and he said no hit short or to the left/right of the green and let your ball role. All can say it is a greal little course, very challenging. a LOT of up hill and down hill walking. Great people that run the course. No real dress code (You can wear shorts) Just a great golf expereince!
There are hilly courses and then theres this one!.A very different and difficult challenge the course was in very good condition when we played.Although scoring well I did not enjoy the round as elevated tees and blind tee shots are all very well but not on every hole!.Perhaps we played on a bad day but not a soul spoke to us.We wont be back.
Fantastic course. Gorgeous setting; as mentioned, 11 par 3s, but does not lack for challenge. Interesting to play, with many thoughful shots. When played (30 Aug), course in absolutely fantastic condition. Staff and members very welcoming
This is a must-play course if you're in the area. It's in a delightful setting and has lots of interesting holes with really good greens. You need to be quite fit to get around - many steep climbs and drops involved. I played with a very friendly member (thanks Annie) which helped enormously - there are several completely blind shots and lots of others where firing at the pin is the not the thing to do! Highly recommended. (It was a bit stodgy in July so it may be poor in the winter).
Played this course on Monday (25 Sept 03). The staff and members were friendly and only too happy to give advise. However they did fail to mention the requirement for a Sherpa or Mountain goat as a caddie. Seriously, great 18 holes, so good I played another 10 holes. What a great test of anyone's game.
Played this course this summer when on holiday as it is the only 18 hole in the area. Very hilly and more demanding the the par of 61 suggests. 11 par 3's but a three felt like a birdie on some. raised tees to low greens and vice versa, needed all the clubs in the bag. Great fun and will play it again, a must if you are in the area, take lots of ball but you won't be disappointed.
Played the course on Sat. 6/10/2001 and was lucky enough to have a beautiful morning for playing golf on a quirky little track with 11 par 3's. I thought the greens were in great condition for the time of year and some of the holes were really tricky where you had to tee off to a 100 foot drop or tee up to a hiden green above - a most enjoyable game of golf to be played if you are in the area on holiday.
