Hugh

I've been playing golf for more than 40 years and have taken my clubs on my business trips and family holidays. I must have played more than 1,000 courses and all but a handful of Britain & Ireland’s Top 100. I’ve followed this website since its inception and have enjoyed airing my subjective opinions. It’s amazing how wildly views differ and sometimes I wonder if I played the same course as some reviewers as the gap in opinion is so often broad. My handicap has risen from 7 to 11 as my age has increased and my enthusiasm for practising decreased but I still enjoy playing different courses as much today as I did 4 decades ago. Vive les domaines de golf.

2nd Kerry - Best in Area 5th Ireland Ranking 35th Britain & Ireland Ranking
Undeniably a great course but outclassed by Ballybunion, Lahinch and Old Head. It’s exceptionally tough with some top class holes and it’s also fair without tricks. Play...

Killarney (Killeen) 17/01/2005

7th Kerry - Best in Area 35th Ireland Ranking
Killeen is definitely the best of the three Killarney courses, but I’m left wondering what might have been had they left the original course intact. You tend to get hypno...
