Irish golf plaudits
Best value: Ardglass Golf Club in County Down, Northern Ireland.
• Trump International Golf Links Ireland in Doonbeg. "I understand it's very impressive, and I look forward to going back and seeing the changes that [Dr. Martin Hawtree] made to the Greg Norman original design."
• Adare Manor Golf Club in County Limerick. "Tom Fazio is going to go in there and probably completely change Adare Manor and bring it back to something more like what we'd expect from golf in Ireland, so I'm looking forward to the changes there."
