The Island is a good course, and you know what you're getting. It's definitely no-frills, the pro shop reminded me of my local muni (that's a compliment I swear). I like getting somewhere and knowing it's all about the golf. The massive dunes were fun to navigate, and the course was super firm and fast ahead of the Amateur. There were plenty of fantastic golf holes there, but there were quite a few that weren't special to me. It's definitely somewhere I could see myself coming again, although I wouldn't put it at the top of my list. If you're touring Dublin, the Island is a fantastic true links worth the visit.
