My dad and I played Powerscourt East on August 12, 2014. We were thoroughly impressed with the layout and the immaculate condition of the course. The greens are some of the most challenging either of us have played...and we've played a lot. You really need to be on your game to score well here, as the rough is tough to play from, there are many bunkers and there are no gimme's on the greens. Neither of us played our best, but we liked the place so much we went back for a second round two days later...with much better results...though I'm still not satisfied. :)
The clubhouse and practice facilities at Powerscourt are really nice. There's a putting and chipping area and it was only 4 Euro for a small bucket of balls for the driving range. The staff in the pro shop were really friendly and helpful. We even got a bit of a discount on the cart the second time we came back.
Overall, we had an awesome experience at Powerscourt. I would recommend it to anyone and I will be back for more on my next visit to Ireland!
