Club house is not welcoming at all. Hardly any staff working. One barman who was miserable . One of the worst golf clubhouses I've been in, my back gardens shed is more friendly. A drink was €5 and a packet of crisps was €3. Beyond...More

The clubhouse is not the most welcoming. Not huge amount of staff around. If they knew it was going to win would have thought that they might have had a towel for the price we paid? And no refreshment buggy out on the course, why...More

Have always liked Pinta and was reluctant to be negative about it but it must be said that currently it is a big disappointment. Played last week and the course was decidedly scruffy. They are clearly having problems with the greens which are heavily sanded...More

Great course in magnificent condition. Good hire clubs and cheap green fees as we were guests at a sister resort. The only reason it didn't get a full 5* review is buggy is a must due to the terrain but the cost of a hire...More

Played early one morning as a two ball. No problems with slow play ahead of us, nor were we chased around the course. The layout is excellent, with many interesting and challenging holes. We particularly liked the par 3's from elevated tees and the excellent...More

Lovely course. We walked but it was quite hot and there are a lot of uphill climbs. Fairways are fair, rough is dramatic and greens are unpredictable. Nice game overall and the beer in the clubhouse finished a great round of golf

Played here on the 10th May, course was presented very well and in good condition. Quite an interesting different course with very undulating fairways, an enjoyable game that took just over 4 hours. The gent behind the bar was involved in some sort of dispute...More

Played with three fiends who were on holiday. The staff in the golf shop were very welcoming as were those in the bar / restaurant. The course itself is a good holiday layout which allows the higher handicap player to enjoy their round. The main...More
