Played in early July on a wonderful sunny day. Lots of reviews call this course "fun" and I am not sure that it does this course justice - behind RCD, Lahinch is #2 for me (ahead of Ballybunion, Old Course, Pebble Beach, and many others ranked ahead of it). The feel of the place is ideal to me - the right mix of old school golf with a touch of being laid back (RCD was a bit stuffy to me, but the course overcame that). The course had a great mix of holes from the daunting links type hole of RCD, to the blind, old school funky holes (4 and 5) and open let it rip (18). If I could pick one course I have played to be a member, Lahinch is it for me.
