This is one of Ireland’s great courses- opening up with a good start that improves gradually as you progress all the way around through to the final stretch. The scenery blends well with each hole and the course will test the golfer’s ability to play a variety of shots. There are some semi-blind holes that a player in good form should naturally be on the right track. The keen golfer will discern the correct approach to each green or will remember not to come in from the wrong side if they play it again. This is a hitters and shot maker’s course extremely enjoyable to play and deserves the top 5 ranking in Ireland. Atlantic storms in 2014 washed away one of the better par five fairways but it has recovered somewhat now and is playable again.
