6 handicap golfer - played Tralee 23 April 2013. I had heard that it was a course of 2 9s, with the front 9 suffering in comparison to the back 9. Whilst this is undoubtedly true, there are some top quality holes on the front 2nd, 3rd, 7th and 8th.The back 9 however is epic starting with the 10th which off the tips is a powerful, strategic par 4. The 11th is a little out of character and one which is probably more of a link between 10 and 12. The 12th asks huge questions on the second shot but is a great hole. The remainder coming in is as good as it gets in links golf with stunning dunescapes and excellent design.
