Ballyclare, Co.Antrim NI
- I have played this course a number of times and it is a very good course with good facilities. Unfortunately last time I played it the greens were in very poor condition. This time the greens were very slow possibly because they were preparing for the Portuguese open. However the bunkers were unacceptable, a number had water in them that was slow draining because or the clay base. Others were like concrete and the club was bouncing off the surface. I understand that the pace of play can be slow at holiday time but it was far too slow and no ranger to move play along. I understand they need to fill the course when they can and a lot of groups have inexperienced players but there should be a ranger going around on a regular basis to insure quicker play and that bunkers are raked.
