    Three mates and I played this course in May 2002. This is a very natural
    links course (fairways and greens) carved out of the land and with years of
    maturity to it. It is not for the faint hearted with several long holes made
    even longer into the wind. It is extremely challenging with some blind shots,
    so it is helpful to have played it before (which we hadn't!). Nevertheless we
    thoroughly enjoyed playing the course. It would be fair to say that you need
    to be on top of your game to score well but it was a pleasure to play. The
    clubhouse, service and food were top class and we discovered that there are
    rooms available to stay at the club and we will probably take advantage of
    this next time - yes, next time, as we are definitely coming back.

    I have a great fondness for this course. It is where I got my first intro to golf and have played it a few times with my uncle who is a member. I LOVE this course and would only rate Portmarnock's greens as better. As other reviews have said the fairways are narrow, Some very enjoyable holes, #1 is a testing opener and I also like #8 and #9. On the back nine I like #12 to #15, #12 & #13 being par 4's down valleys of dunes.

    A very intriguing course and vastly underrated in my opinion. The course presents as quite natural, gently rolling fairways that leave somewhat uneven lies but not to an extreme. As in most links layouts, there are dunes in the rough but again they are natural and are only really noticeable on but a few holes. Actually, the course is quite reasonable to walk unlike Lahinch, Carne, and perhaps the Ballybunion courses. To me, the most memorable feature of the course was how the fairways seemed like long narrow green ribbons among the brownish hued landscape dominated by knee length, but sparse, grass in the rough. Visually very appealing but in high winds, the fairways can be elusive targets indeed. The greens are also reputed to be among the best in Ireland. They certainly were as good as any I've encountered there. I would highly recommend stopping for game here for those travelling between the Dublin area and County Down or Belfast. Reasonably priced as well, given that golf is a relatively expensive proposition in Ireland to begin with.

    I played this course in September 1997. The weather was perfect and we had the course to ourselves. There isn't a bad hole on this course and several of them a fantastic, especially the par threes. The blind shots aren't gimmicky and add to the
    flavor of the course. The greens are among the best in Ireland / UK This course is as geed or better than many of the more 'famous' courses in Ireland. I would not miss it!
