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.

We played the two courses here over 2 days. These are both exceptional courses intertwined between each other. Both courses are very long with strategically placed pot bunkers on most holes. The Glashedy Links will host the Irish Open in 2018 and will be a...More
