Course Information

This golf course has a number of contrasting holes making it an excellent challenge for most levels of handicap, even the world's best golfer. Not the longest of golf courses at 6,078 yards, the front nine is quite forgiving and there are plenty of chances to score well. The back nine requires more of a tactical approach, with the alterations in terrain a different strategy is needed. Good course management and a cool head will help you score well and if you don't, just enjoy the spectacular views over Belfast Lough. 18 Holes, Par 69, Yardage 6078. Parkland.

    Spring round

    Friendly welcome for a lone golfer. Was introduced to a couple of members who guided me around the course. Course has some quite severe slopes in places and was a little soggy after a period of rain, causing 2 short par 3's to be out of use. Most par 4's are less than 400 yds from visitors tees, so premium on accuracy into green from non-flat lies, either across slope or up & down slope. Some greens have a definite "do not miss" side due to drop offs. No food on a Monday which was a little disappointing. Some impressive trophies won by the 2005 club champion. Well worth the visit

    Not as hard as I'd heard

    I'm not a great golfer so had avoided Hollywood in the pas as id heard it was very hard, but i couldn't avoid when the great price on tee off times came up. Course was in great condition for time of year , staff couldn't have been more helpful. And I managed to get a few pars , so all good.

    Great Test Of Golf

    if you enjoy hills this is the course for you, alot of shots will be played with the ball below or above your feet if you dont hit the middle of the fairway. The course has some good long holes if you hit the ball long and can keep it straight! The sand in the bunkers was soft so easy to escape from. Sadly the greens werent good. The ball didnt roll smooth and stopped quickly due to the greens being slit and sanded.

    Holywood GC

    The 2014 "Champion Golfer of the Year" Rory McIlroy still calls Holywood his home course. This is a fairly good parkland course that will ask you to execute a variety of shots to get around in good numbers. This is an easy walking course among the trees and gentle slopes off Belfast Lough. You only need to do 2 things well here, limit the number of errant shots you pull out of the bag and hold a hot putter and your score will reflect that. Friendly members, cordial clubhouse staff, great Guinness & one of the best trophy rooms around.

    Excellent challenging course

    We played at Holywood at the end of July, when of course, it was raining! Just before we teed off there was an almighty downpour and we could see puddles appearing on a few greens. Nevertheless, the greens were still firm and fast and the fairways still had plenty of run. Holywood is quite a hilly course - hardly surprising given it's location - and represents a really good challenge (for me anyway). If I had one criticism it's that it only has a single par 5, but there are a couple of nice long par 4s. I've played it a couple of times now, and overall, it's a very good course and even if you're playing badly, has some great views down over Belfast Lough. HIghly recommended.

    Great course

    We had a great round of golf here. Greens were fast and hard to reach. Some of the hole you were playing blind. Would recommend a vist here.

    Course has amazing views over Belfast

    1st time playing this course and first impressions I was top quality especially the greens and also the fairways were great, the only fault of the course would be it's a bit hilly and you would probably need a buggy , but I thoroughly enjoyed my round of golf around Hollywood, thanks :)

    Rory McIlroy's childhood course

    Sure, I played Royal County Down and Royal Portrush on this trip, but Holywood was a great change of pace. Traveled here on assignment in July 2011 to find the home of Rory McIlroy a month after he won the U.S. Open. This place is so charming, as are all of the members. Funny story about teeing off on No. 1. I stood on the back tee (which only measures 6,000 yards in total) and 2 nice elderly men walked up and pointed to a forward tee. Took me awhile to realize what they meant, but eventually it was clear that they don't let anyone (especially Americans) just walk to the back tees. Apparently, you have to earn it. So I walked forward and had a lovely experience from about 5,800 yards. This is a parkland course that provides plenty of elevation change and nice views of downtown Belfast. You'll rarely have a flat lie so be prepared. I can understand why people would overlook Holywood - there's so much great golf in the area. But don't overlook it, take an afternoon and go see the place that produced a two-time major champion.

    Charming golf experience, spectacular views of bay

    This was a charming day of golf at Rory's home course. I felt like a member for a day. Very cool modern clubhouse with friendly members and staff. Everyone asks where you are from and how was your golf. Course is parkland style with steep hills. A few breathtaking elevated tees. Almost all other fairways are steeply sloped sideways. Practice your sidehill lies! Overall a charming and memorable day of golf! I also played Portmarnock Old Course, Royal Dornach, & North Berwick this week so Holywood was more of a local experience rather than a world class golf course.
