About the Course Balcarrick is an estuary style course, mixing the best of parkland and links. Balcarrick provides year round tees and greens. Water is a feature on nearly all of the holes and the Par 3's are particularly challenging.

The picturesque par 4 1st tempts using a driver for eagle - but beware - green is surrounded by water on 3 sides. The safer option is a medium iron to the fairway and then a short iron to green for par or birdie. This risk / reward theme comes into play on many of the holes that follow, so suiting the average golfer as well as the high handicapper. Most memorable of the remaining holes are the 2 par 3s, 5th & 7th, and the par 4 14th, where the lake comes into play for the long hitter off the tee. Greens were superb and course has a well defined and pleasing layout, with an abundance of wildlife.
The friendly atmosphere of the 19th completes a most enjoyable day out. With lots of special green fee offers for visitors, this venue represents good value for money and a great golfing experience.

Since the redevelopment this course has improved each year. While neither links or parkland it mixes both styles to provide a great challange and some excellant holes with some real risk reward shots.
Balcarrick also has some of the best greens in Ireland and well worth a visit.
