One of the best Links we’ve played (when compared to the Turnberry, Royal Troon, the 3 St Andrews courses, Pebble, Carnoustie, Kingsbarns, Pacific Dunes, etc.). Easy walking for most of the course. There are some dunes which cause the heart to beat faster & the...More

A great links course. I played it on a beautiful day but dread to think what it's like on a typical Irish summer's day, ie wet and wild! Tough Par 3's and great Par 5's that are true risk and reward holes. Greens are a...More

Yes, you could! As you may or may not know, golf carts are not permitted. ...Only for the handicapped. The caddies are wonderful! The restaurant is very good! A must!

Walking course. Easy to walk. Caddies are reasonable price but not required. Rental clubs were top of the line. Balls not included. Need plenty. Rough are rough!
