I have played over 100 courses in Ireland and the Monty course manyl times. It is my favourite course in the country. I have played the K. Club, the PGA, European Club and other beautiful courses but I just love Carton not only for the quality of the course but for its setting as well. It has a really links feel about it with some beautiful views of the woods surrounding parts of the back 9 and it offers a fantastic view on the castle from many holes and especially the 17th and the 18th which are great finishing holes with water. You can score very well on those 2 holes or lose the ball as well right and scratch them. The course is always in immaculate condition (greens are top class, fairways, bunkers...). The design is really good and challenging and meeting the bunkers definitely brings another challenge to a round. The club house itself is worth a round of golf at Carton! If you have never played this course, give it a go, you will love it!
