There are some lovely holes on this course but there are also some stupid holes which reduce play to a snails pace. The front nine is the scoring nine the back nine it where the madness happens which took us over 3 hours to play due to groups in front of us. Its got great views but i wouldnt be overly keen on the course I think there are better ones around

What a gem! I played this great course for $25 euros today! They had a special on. Don't let the cheap green fee deter you from playing. It is a fantastic but tough true links course! Especially, watch out on the back 9! The wind was howling and I got down to my last golf ball on the 16th hole! Had such a great time on this beautiful links course! I highly recommend it!

Great, natural golf course, which demands a variety of qualities from your game and character; patience, playing the wind, conservative and attacking play. This is a course for those who enjoy the challenge of links golf, the wind and the terrain; many great holes, many of which would not be designed by a modern architect and great for that reason. Enjoy.

My wife and I were on a golf tour of Ireland's West coast when we found Strandhill. We had played courses such as Ballybunion, Lahinch and Carne and were on our way to our accommodation at Rosses Point before playing Co. Sligo the next day. We needed to find somewhere to have lunch on the coastal scenic route, when my wife, who was navigating, found Strandhill on the map and suggested we called in for lunch.
The reception we received was incredibly friendly and during a fantastic lunch we oversaw much of the beautiful golf course from the clubhouse.
We then called in at the Pro Shop and during a conversation with him, the Pro suggested that we had to call back and play the course. Although we had a tight schedule, two days later, at about 9.30am, we called back to see if we could play.
It was Ladies Day and due to the wonderful weather, many of the ladies had booked tee times. We explained that we needed to be in North Donegal by late afternoon and would not be able to wait until all of the ladies had teed off. The Pro understood our problem and said we could tee off at hole 6 but as we may not be able to get on hole 1, he would only charge us a reduced fee, although he did say if we could get on at hole 1, that would be fine. He even charged us only members rates for a cart, due to the restricted round.
In the event we did get on at hole 1 after playing 18, which was a real bonus as holes 1 to 5 are not to be missed.
This course is absolutely superb and although not as famous as the Ballybunions and Lahinches, Strandhill is a course that should not be missed by golfers of any standard, it is so good.
The friendship and hospitality shown by all of the staff was exceptional and certainly unsurpassed by anything else we encountered in this very friendly country. We also spoke to many of the lady players who were also incredibly friendly and helpful with their information and advice.
Amongst many fantastic courses we played from the Ring of Kerry in the South West up to Ballyliffin in the North West, Strandhill stands out as a most fantastic and impromptu diversion in our otherwise fully booked and planned trip. So much so, that in a future trip to the West of Ireland, Strandhill, is a place we will certainly revisit.

We traveled from the U.S. and played this wonderful links course. Great conditions. beautiful links and awesome clubhouse and staff (such as "Rocking Tommy" the bartender whose service was top notch and very kind). There are more expensive courses in IRE but this one was a great value and a great test of our links skills. Women are welcome, treated well and respected by the members and the staff we met. I highly recommend visiting Strandhill.
