I played the course in May 2009. It is no wonder that this course hosted the Open Championship in years past. It is very intimidating looking from many of the tees, by HS Colt left more room for the ball than there appears. The course changes directions so often that one finds the wind is never affecting the shot in the same way. There are so many memorable holes that it would be easier to list the rest. Although not as beautiful a course as Royal County Down, it is probably the best golf course from start to finish than anything you will see in Britain and Ireland.
