When people think of golfing in the South of Ireland I bet they never consider playing the Cashen course at Ballybunion, that is a big mistake! The Cashen course is spectacular and if it wasn’t next to its world famous sibling than it would be very famous itself. The par 3’s aren’t long but hitting the right part of the green is key to them, some par 4’s are short meaning…

Played the O’Meara course In Aug 21, very well maintained parkland course which really gets going from the par 3 7th onwards, also holes 14,15 and 16 have to rival any golf course in the world as the best back to back holes to play. Course was in great condition and greens highly impressive, the mature trees really give it a true parkland feel. Only negative point was clu…

First time playing Ballybunion Old Course, what a lovely course that really comes into its own from the 8th hole onwards. Big run offs around the greens means a good short is needed! Lots of different tee options available meaning the course is playable for all levels, we received a lovely welcome on arrival and the clubhouse is very impressive, food was delicious and the…

When you add in the views, the location, the condition of the course, the clubhouse and hospitality this is the best course I’ve ever played!, my advice is get here and play it, you will forever remember it. I’m already planning a return visit. What a course!

Having not played Dromoland before but having seen photos I was expecting it to be nice, however it’s so much better than I expected! Two small details that tipped me off that the course would be well maintained before I walked it was new high end buggy’s and perfect tarmac cart paths. The clubhouse, bar, locker room and proshop all look like they have recently modernised…

Another visit to Fota 30/08/20 and got a cracking day for it so it was shorts and t shirts! Everything at Fota Island is pure quality from the driveway, the pro shop, the locker rooms, the restaurant/bar and the highlight is the golf course, has to be the best greens to putt on around, also I used the practice facilities for the first time and what a pleasure to practice …

First time playing the Old course and was very impressed with the quality of the course. The best greens Ive ever played on they were like they were brand new! The quality of the course was also excellent and even though the green fee is on the high side you can see where the money is spent. It's a tree lined course but you will always find your ball if off line and will …

My second time to play the Ocean course and it just doesn't disappoint. The front nine has more of a parkland feel to it but the back nine is just stunning with holes 11,14 and 15 right down to the beach. Greens in top condition and even though its winter they are very quick! You won't go wrong if playing either the ocean or royal course in while in the Algarve.

The front 9 at Marbella golf and country club is tight! It’s irons off the tee unless you can drive it long and straight, but the hitting irons off the tee is fine too because there is run on the ball and it makes you think more as well. The back 9 opens up and has more of a parkland feel to it and is very enjoyable. Greens here were in great condition and running fast! A…

Santana was the surprise course of the 2019 trip and in a good way. Firstly if your into clubhouses, locker rooms and big proshops than Santana won't hit the mark but what will is the course and will surpass expectations easily! The course was in excellent condition and after a lovely welcome from the starter the round starts with a straight forward enough par 4 but after…

Played both the America and Europe courses at La Cala and of the 2019 Spain trip the america course was the best conditioned of any course we played. It was also nearly my favourite of the trip as well and if you have played Vale do Lobo courses and QDL North/South then the america course is of that standard. Excellent buggy's and definitely needed here on both courses! T…

Respuesta de La Cala Resort — 25 septiembre 2019

Dear marksheehan, thank you for taking the time to leave a review about your experience at La Cala Resort. We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed Campo America which we renovated in 2018 with new bunkers and upgrades to the design of several holes. Also new for 2019 was the addition of 60 brand new Clubcar buggies with GPS. We have recently finished renovation works on Campo Asia over the summer with brand new bunkers and new bermuda grass greens. The plan for 2020 is to continue the major investment in our golf courses with new bunkers and greens on Campo Europa. We hope to see you at La Cala very soon and we are sure that you wil enjoy the upgrades on Asia and Europa next year. Kind regards Robert Mitchell Director of Golf

First course of the Spain 2019 trip and have to say Valle Romano is very good. Some of the most interesting tee shots of the trip with 3rd tee being a good few hundred of feet up above the fairway! A very playable course and some lovely golf holes. There have switched the 9's so make sure your gps is on the correct 9 when starting! All staff were very nice to us and the c…

I heard great reports about its quality but it was way above my high expectations.

Quinta Do Lago is a very impressive golf course with some lovely looking golf holes along with being very playable tee to green. On the greens which are large putts can run very fast with lots of breaks so make sure to get the read right! Buggy’s (would recommend one for the South course? have gps and everything about Quinta Do lago is maintained to a very high standard. …

Lovely course with some of the best greens I’ve played abroad. I happened to play it after fairway maintenance but I could still see the potential of how good this course is tee to green. In full perfect maintenance it would rival all neighboring courses while at the same time being very playable and birdies are there to be got! I would recommend to play but find out in a…

Played the Royal Course for the 2nd year running and it was again in excellent condition tee to green, straight hitting is required but still very playable. Of course the highlight is the par 3 16th and I had a career up and down for par so it’s now my favorite par 3 in all of golf! Play the two courses at Vale Do Lobo and you’ll enjoy as much as I do! Hope to play again …

Updated review since my last visit! New driving range and practice holes are excellent and really add to the golf club. New locker room upgrades are top class and could spend an hour in the shower they are that good! Food as expected is still very good and the course is obviously still one of the best on the planet to play!

Bonmount was booked as part of five day trip to mainly to play the courses at Lumine Golf Resort.

Castlemartyr is an inland links and one I wanted to play for awhile. Its a test of golf and if your offline it can be a long day but the fairways are generous so there should be no problem there. Condition of the tee boxes, fairways and greens was excellent but bunkers needed more attention and more sand. Some very nice holes on the course and if the wind is blowing then …

Ballyneety is a very nice mature parkland course which makes you think about shots to play instead of just hitting a golf ball around a course. Very well maintained entrance way and carpark.

I had a 7.30 tee time so walked and carried, if your playing after 11 am in the summer time my advice would be go for a buddy(which all have gps) to beat the heat.

Two excellent parkland golf courses at Powerscourt with the West being my favourite, it has to be up there with one of the best Parkland courses in Ireland. The grounds along with the courses are maintained to a very high standard, and its a pleasure to walk such beautiful fairways.

Lovely golf course which is a mixture of parkland and links, greens were in top sharp and in general the course was well maintained. Clubhouse and changing rooms are of a very high standard and proshop contains everything you need.

If you looking to book a golf trip abroad then look no further than Lumine. Reasons for 1) Only 15 minute transfer from Rues airport 2) The quality of courses that you are getting for the cost will not be matched, this is where final stage of Euro Q School is held! 3) The Welcome you get from all the staff makes you feel like the most important golfer to them for the few …
