This was the last stop in a 12 course tour of the Ireland, Scotland, and the UK and we got the full Irish here as the wind was up and they had let the rough grow for a recent amateur tournament. Thus this was one of the few places where going into the wind was brutal but going downwind was not a great advantage either as it was almost impossible to stop a ball if you landed it on the green. Not to mention the crosswinds taking the ball into the rough which, upon first inspection, appeared better than what I was in at Birkdale the prior day but was easily as bad if not worse in many places. Only downside of the course is being in the flight path of Dublin airport lessens some of the natural beauty of this seaside links but it's worth playing multiple times.
