We went on a Sunday afternoon with a large family for a... More

Delighted you enjoyed your meal in the club. We will pass on your review to our catering team and I hope you will be back in the not too distant future. There is a new extended menu being rolled out shortly so the already excellent offering is set to improve. More

Just back in from a leisurely Sunday dinner at the Golf Club in the upstairs bar and restaurant. We eat there as often as possible as it caters greatly to the demands of a family that has both teens and younger kids. Seven of us ate there today with each of us having starters, main courses and deserts for 125... More

Played a round with My friends. Excellent facilities and course. After the golf we enjoyed a nice meal in the club house over looking the 18th green.

If you want a golf challenge then Portatlington (aka Garryhinch) is a must. Superb condition, well maintained & friendly staff. Nearly every hole is tree lined & the greens are their defense, watch out for Amen Corner, 14, 15, 16 & 17...

Played this week and found the course in excellent condition. The food served in the club is excellent and well priced. Well worth a visit and the course is flat and easy walking.

Played here a good few times over the years and it looks like it has been hit hard by the recession. Fairways and tee boxes not cut. No definition between fairway and rough also greens in shocking condition, greens pole forked and no sand used to fill holes.course just not being maintained as in years past.

Thank you for taking the time to review our course. As with the majority of golf clubs the economic climate has meant cutbacks were required but our priority is always on our course and maintaining it to the best of our resources. I have passed your feedback on to our greens keeper as it is always good to get constructive... More

I was remiss not to write a review when we visited here in July last year. Coming from Portarlington in Australia, of course we were going to pop in here on our travels. The welcome from the Captain and other board members was fantastic. We enjoyed our meal and drinks as well. Would hope that we can visit again in... More
