4 reviews of Connemara Isles Golf Club
I played this course during the last week in Sept 2013. It was, without doubt, the most enjoyable experience I've had on a golf course for many a year. Can't understand how 'unknown' this little course is. Of course it helped that the weather on the day was a glorious mixture of blue skies, gentle breezes, low tides and dry fairways. Connemara, and most particularly the surrounding mountains, inlets and stone-ringed fields, were a backdrop to a great day. As was the welcome in the bar afterwards. And I didn't lose as many balls as others had warned. So as to share my experience, I posted a gallery of images taken on the day, and available on the Flickr site at:
Happened to be down in the Clifden area at the end of February 2014, after one of the worst winters in many a year. While half the country was still under water, I decided to drop in here again on a whim. Yea, a different kind of 'fun' this time! Gale-force winds blowing, occasional 'soft/waterlogged' fairways, threatening rain squalls all around . . . . but the Gods smiled on me, and the rains skirted the area. Mind you, this time I lost more than the usual quota of balls.
If you're ever in the region, make a special effort to play this course.
WOW.....Played this course 3 times in mid September, what a pleasure. Superb scenery on every hole, challenging particularly the first time when you don't know where you are going as many of the holes are blind from the tee. Excellent greens and fairways. Take time to look around at the work that went in to building this course the rock walls that make up the tee boxes, a causeway that links the island to the mainland evrything is superbly done. Out of the way and hard to find but persevere you will not be disappointed. Hope to return again one day.
I visited Connemara Isles last year and it was a delightful experience. It is a challenging course and the members and staff are pleasant and friendly. The greens are excellent and the experience of playing on another island was excellent. There are beautiful views and the scenery combining the mountains and the Atlantic Ocean are breath-taking. I would recommend this course with high regard in all areas.
I played Connemara Isles Golf Club, 'Golf Mara' as the locals call it on 17 May, 2002: a delight for this high handicapper Senior Citizen from the USA. I like it better than some more expensive, big name courses: a 'Links' layout island course with a smaller island that brings water into play on holes 3, 4 and 5, then again on number 9. You may never be happy playing your home course again after you've played a round on Golf Mara. I think it is one of the best golf values in Ireland. I will return to Ireland again in September just to play Golf Mara.
