It is tough when you are comparing links courses in Ireland as the competition is fierce. With RCD, Lahinch and Waterville as my top 3 (Royal Portrush has yet to be played) - Ballybunion suffers from a rather ordinary (in comparison) front 9 - the back is obviously outstanding - but I don't have the front matching up to the opening 9 at some of the others. Outstanding course overall - tough competition in Ireland. Oh, and Listowell was a great town to stay in while playing.
