I was a bit disappointed. I have played many links courses, and a lot of top courses throughout the UK & Ireland, this course does not deserve its ranking. There are some nice holes, but for a large stretch of the course the undulations are too severe, making it almost too much of a challenge in some places. Furthermore, there are three terrible new inland in the middle of the course which seem completely out of place. I suppose I may not have got a proper flavour for the course as I only played it once, however the 2nd and the 16th onwards were classic links holes.
