Lahinch….What a grand place. Very welcoming. A course which offers all you expect with a world ranked links course. Diverse holes. Some blind shots. Tight fairways. Undulating greens. This round was the first time I played here where I didn’t encounter a goat…Ha. Playing Lahinch is mandatory on any SW Irish excursion. Either at the beginning or the end of your trip. Along with Ballybunion they create a special rivalry of sorts. Which is the best of SW Ireland…It’s a close call and too close to call. Each and every hole here is outstanding except the finisher. The first appears tame but the card rarely agrees. Each hole presents an outstanding design and fits to the array of options. Short 4’s, Long, Tough, Blind, Some great views and a great course..Ya gotta go.
