Course Review and Comments

This course is tremendously challenging. We played nine links courses in Ireland/Northern Ireland, and by far this one was the toughest. In fact, it was so difficult, and with so many blind shots, that it almost wasn't enjoyable. I'm glad we were able to golf it to say that we did, but I wouldn't go back. Unless your handicap is in the single digits, this one may be a bit too much for you. A straight shot from a blind tee box will likely land in deep rough making it impossible to find your ball. It's a pricey round -- we actually had a much better time at nearby Ardglass which seemed to be a much fairer course with amazingly beautiful views.
