The course is really beautiful and in great condition.... very long to walk but it is one of the top golf courses in Ireland. Pity the wind was too strong and become very difficult to score well....

It's a number of years since I played this course but it has matured nicely. There isn't a bad hole on the course. The greens were sanded and pole forked earlier in the week which made them slow. I would highly recommend the course.

The course was in very good condition with the exception of the bunkers, so many of the bunkers were out of play gur which I feel you should be advised of before booking as this takes from the round and the course

This was our first time playing Palmerstown and what a great course it is. We played it after a night of very heavy rain and unfortunately a lot of the bunkers had about 3 feet of water in them and others had the edges collapsed on them but that's Mother Nature. Considering the rain fairways and rough were in super condition along with very quick greens. It is a long testing course with plenty of water coming into play. The handicaps in our 4ball ranged from 5-19 so we played off the bronze markers which is about 6500 yards and that suited us fine. Yes long walks between greens and tee boxes but this is a big piece of property. We have wanted to play this course for a long time and now we have played it we will definitely return again.

Normally this course would get 5 stars, however the course is undergoing upgrades to it's green side bunkers and front 9 greens were sanded.On the day of play we had to start from the 10th tee as works were ongoing on the front 9.On saying this I would still recommend this course it's a beautiful layout and definite tough test with plenty of water hazards.

Great track. Wind was up and course played even longer which was a tough challenge as the course is a good lenght off the white tees anyway. Greens where perfect. Bit soft off the fairway but time of year. Price was €24 when winter rates is €40 so great value. Will play again soon.
