Course Information

The 18-hole links course at Carnalea has tight, undulating fairways and greens requiring accuracy off the tee. The back nine move away from the coastline and are slightly more woodland in their makeup. The views of the surrounding sea add a scenic backdrop to your round. The signature hole is the 9th, known as Plateau, which is a short par 3 to an elevated green that can be the ruin of a good scorecard.

    Interesting, with views

    The good points :- Although only a par 69 & just about 6K yds, most holes are sufficiently interesting and with hazards or features that concentrate the mind. The layout is good even though there is a bit of a trek between the 9th &10th, with the short par 3 9th probably being the feature hole, and there are very scenic views of Belfast Lough, the South Antrim coast and passing shipping traffic to be had from most parts of the course. The not-so-good points :- {Bearing in mind the time of year} Much work going on around the course with sand being spread over much of the fairways leading to an unusual practice of either placing a small plastic mat to play off or moving the ball to edge of the fairway for semi-rough placing. Greens had been recently hollow-tined plus sanded and were consequently quite slow and bobbly and there were winter mats on all tees plus a VERY poor temporary green on the 18th. One all-year-round criticism would be that there are a lot of blind tee shots with no pictorial view availability for guidance, plus hole signage could do with being improved. One thing to note too, is that parking is limited at the clubhouse, but it IS possible to travel by train & the station is only 100M or so away, with the track bisecting the course - hence the walk from 9th green to 10th tee.

    Great views and variety of holes

    We played on a very windy day but thoroughly enjoyed our game. It is not a long course and so is friendly for us older golfers. The views on the front nine are spectacular.

    Excellent experience

    This was the first time using golfnow combined with Carnalea. The process was effortless, the pro in the shop was well aware of the booking made through golfnow, the process and experience all worth while. The day in which we played had fairly high wind speeds, this added to the difficulty of the course since the front 9 is exposed to the elements, while the back 9 is sheltered. Spectacular views and a great golfing experience, would highly recommend this course to anyone thinking about booking a tee slot, you will not be disappointed.

    Seafront course

    Enjoyable and great value. Sea breezes at times can be a challenge to consider. Holes are reasonable length and forgiving fairways.

    The greens are fantastic even in the autumn.

    Carnalea golf course is great,food also very good. The only down side if your booking a tee off time online the staff wether helpers or the pro in shop! Either they don't no or don't want to they are not very helpful in fact quite rude and obnoxious when you show your conformation email from golfnow this happened to me not once but twice
