Played as part of a NI golf tour, and was very impressed. As a GUI member I paid £17.50, which probably represents the best value round of golf I have ever had. Really is a very solid test of golf with the wind up. The very long par 3 6th is 230 ish yards up hill and in to the wind, if anyone knows how an 18 handicapper is supposed to play it that would be great! While there were queue’s of American waiting to play the mighty Dunluce, the Valley course was virtually empty, which I loved and long may that continue, so it will always be easy for the really discerning links lovers to get a game. One small point for the Top 100 team – you have the Valley rated 2 places higher than Ardglass in NI – there is no way the Valley course (whilst I really enjoyed it) is better than Ardglass!!!!
