Played this course many times and over the numerous years I played it has been improved each time. Good links but a bit tight as many holes are nearby and parallel to each other. When the wind was high in serious competition we just played down the other fairway particularly when it is side on. It is littered with shallow drains many of which are dry and could be filled in, as some have been over the years. A lot of nasty gorse has been cut out allowing the player to hit on in comfort. There are some wonderful holes with some great par trees but regretfully the vista of the final exceptional hole is blocked by a plane tree. Fond memories of winning the father & son there. Definitely in top ten in Dublin and a bit higher than the Ireland ranking.
