We played Glashedy yesterday in even stronger winds than the previous day, up to 40 mph. We nipped out early thanks to the friendly staff to take advantage of the lovely sunshine and had a great fun game of golf in very challenging conditions. I very much doubt that human hand will find either of the golf balls that I attempted to drive on the 4th with the wind blowing from the left. A relatively gentle start introduces you to a clearly modern links but with the sense of fun retained. The views are amazing from the upper ground with a great sense of isolation. The par 3's were all downhill leading to some peculiar shot making. Would love to return on a better day, the closing stretch into the teeth was a zig zag grind, bringing to mind PG Wodehouse's description of an Atlantic Convoy avoiding U-Boats. A great place to stay for a couple of days and enjoy 2 very good golf courses which we couldn't split on ranking.
