The Glashedy Course is quite a challenge. It was this year's Irish Open site for a reason. We played August 27, and the weather was cool, windy and on/off wet, typical of Irish links courses. The course was excellently maintained.

My husband played the Glashedy course, while on our trip to the Inishowen peninsula. He found it more challenging than 'Dunbeg' golf course (a links course in Co. Clare.) He was delighted with himself to have this opportunity pre 2018! He bought some polo-tops in...More
