    Just a quick observation on Mike O'Sullivan's submission. The course was actually designed to be played the other way round - the nine's were swapped as it made it easier for TV covering tournaments like the Scottish PGA and Solhiem Cup (as they could mount cameras on top of the hotel).
    The real finishing hole is the par-5 9th - James Braid designed this as a Par-4 of almost 460 yards. With the current 6th being a par-4 over 400 yards along the out-of bounds, the 7th a 200+ yard par-3 and the 8th a shortish par-4 but to an elevated two tiered green, it made a very tough finish.
    The holes Mike talks about were designed by Mr Braid to be two short easy par-4's in the middle of the round. And you needed it too - the first hole under 400 yards on the proper 'front nine' was the par-3 6th (currently the 15th) - which is followed by the treacherous 7th between the lack and the gorge.
    Strange but true.

    A nice course but not worth the money. It should be in better shape for the price charged.

    Played Dalmahoy during the summer of 1996 while on a golf tour through Scotland, , and found it to be an enjoyable experience for the most part. Rolling fairways, decent greens and not terribly penal by Scottish standards. I appreciated the fact that you could see most of the trouble, and not too many pot bunkers like at St, Andrews, Troon, etc .
    A few negatives do stand out in my mind, however. The practice facility was very poor, bad quality balls and hitting off rock hard matts out of stalls. Not fun. I also remember that the last hole was rather weak, a short non descript par four which ironically followed a world class 17th hole of 400 plus yards over a chasm that led back to the club house, and which should have been the finishing hole. I enjoyed it.
