I played golf at Erinvale today and the course was perfect condition. Despite the recent drought the greens and fairways were immaculate.

Food and service excellent after good round of golf. Saw Jonathan before we started who gave us serving times to ensure dinner after our round.

When visiting a Golf Course, the first impression is always really important. Are you treated as a member of the family, or as an unwanted guest? The hospitality at Erinvale is as good as it gets. From the staff in Reception, Pro Shop, Bar and...More
