Castlebar Golf Course, 5 new holes are in play and they are really nice. Very underrated parkland imo.

I thought this thread might be able to help me out opposed to starting a new one.
I'm interested in joining a club in the Waterford area. I'm very close to Tramore but I have heard good things about Faithlegg, Waterford Castle and Waterford Golf Club.
I'm curious as a new member with little connection to the area where someone would recommend?
Tramore would be the most convenient but as a new member, other factors could trump that such as integration of new members etc?

Tramore is a super course and generally rated above the other three, if you joined Waterford Castle you'll have to flaff around getting a ferry every time, think it's a fiver a go

How does it compare to Ballinrobe? Played Ballinrobe a couple of time and thought it was a great track. Might try to get a round in Sat before the match.

Ballinrobe is excellent. It's hard to find fault with it. I don't like the 2nd to 18th hole. It's a bit mental where the tree is but having said that, there is a corridor of about 5m between semi/ fairway where you can land your drive and get on in 2. Also, the tier on the green on 15th is waaaaaaaay too severe but I'm nitpicking. If you don't finish with a smile on your face, don't blame the course!!

TBF it's a par 5 - if that ash wasn't there then the 18th would most like be a long par 4.
That said, the tree is far enough back from the green that even with a 4/5 iron in your hand you should be able to go over it and still be on the back of the green (or else a power fade with a 3 wood around it! )
