Played the course as a practice round for an AIG competition. Will be playing a free practice round in due course so great opportunity to view all the difficult water & reeds. Easy walking course & good fairways & good bunkers.

We played on Saturday afternoon and we almost had the course to ourselves so we could play at whatever pace we wanted.

The weather was good but with a couple of really heavy heavy showers.This didn't effect the course at it just soaked it up.

It was excellent value for money.

Did a quick search online for tee times for a Friday morning. The search engine threw up Balcarrick, and while the price seemed very reasonable, I presumed the course would be sub-standard based solely on this fact. I looked up Youtube for course details and it looked great on the videos.

We played a three-ball on the Friday morning and the course was very quiet with nobody immediately behind us. The course was in immaculate condition. The fairways were perfectly dry under foot even after heavy rain the previous few days. The greens were on par with the best greens I've ever played on. They were in perfect condition...great credit to the green keepers and ground staff.

After a most enjoyable round we went to the clubhouse for some food. While the clubhouse was showing some signs of age, it was very well kept and the staff were friendly and produced some beautiful meals.

Will I be returning to this course.....absolutely....I consider it a fantastic find, and almost felt like not writing this review to keep it to myself, but I think this club should be given it's fair dues. Well done to all associated with this course...fantastic experience.
