    It's a fine 9 hole course designed by Pat Ruddy who owns the European club which is often rated in the top 50 courses in the world. It's tree lined and contains some good fast and contoured greens. As the course plays anti clockwise around the boundaries, the bail out are is always on the left. It's around about the 7000 yard mark from the back tees. My favourite holes are the fourth and fifth. The fourth plays from an elevated tee, a short enough par 4 around the 300 yard mark. The tee shot is tight with out of bounds down the right hand side and a large oak tree to the left. Treat yourself to a gem of a second shot, play a 5/6 iron to the fat part of the fairway, this leaves an exciting wedge shot to the green between/over the tree. Some try to drive the green which in fourball may be an option but it's usually ends up as an all or nothing shot.The fifth at 420 yards long is an exciting hole also. Again a drive is out between a large oak tree on the left and a river running all the down the right hand side of the hole. Bailing out to the left, presuming you manage to miss the tree!, leaves you with a very narrow entrance to the green which is protected by more oak trees to the left and the river to the right.I have played Castlecomer in both the summer and the winter. It gets wet in the winter. They have had problems with the drainage. One thing that surprises me is that they have not tried open drains. The first has a wood on a hill to the left and the water runs down from the wood on to the first/second and third holes.A large open drain up along the wood could feed into open drains running across the fairway which could in turn feed across to(a) a natural pond on the right of the third fairway which just seems to be GUR in summer and a pond in the winter.(b) across the ninth and into the river. It would also cause players to place their tee shots short or over the drains that run across the fairways.
