“Great course, bit disappointed with the welcome!!”

Portarlington Golf Club
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 September 2013 via mobile

Played here last weekend, the course was in great shape and our group really enjoyed the game.
The only negative was the unfriendly (grumpy!!) reception we got from the man in the shop. I just thought he was very blunt towards potential customers, and not nearly as welcoming as the lady that was there the last time we played. The welcome definitely did not match the course.
I wouldn't let it put me off playing again, it's a very good course, well maintained, and decent value.

I was happy to see that you enjoyed our course during your visit but naturally disappointed to note that the welcome wasn't up to what we would expect. I will pass your comment on to the staff in the shop to ensure that the standards of welcome we expect are upheld.

Lovely challenging course and great value for money. The food in the clubhouse is also nice. I will definitely be back.

Great parkland course that can be challenging. The bar serves excellent food. A little gem tucked away in the heart of county Laois
