My playing partner had given this course a big build up having previously played it. He said that the front nine is as good a nine holes of links golf as you can get and I can't say he was wrong, if the back nine was the same it would be a world beater. The view standing on the first tee was stunning with the beach to the right and the dunes out in front of you and I couldn't wait to get started. It's not a long course and probably feels a bit shorter because most of the tee shots are from the top of dunes driving down to the fairways. The greens were quick and true even in March, they must be lightening in the summer. As always in Ireland you are made to feel welcome by everyone you encounter. This course is an absolute must play for anyone who loves links golf.
