Great Irish Beachside Track

This course is similar to Barnbougle Dunes (Tasmania, Australia) in the way it plays along the coast on several holes but the size of the dunes and the routing make it better in my opinion.

It's unusual in that there are only two par 5's and three par 3's which has really been dictated by the topography. There are in fact twenty holes here (7a & 12a) which are also both par 3's and everyone always plays them as well.

It is a reasonably lengthy course with a lot of holes up higher in the dunes which brings the wind into play. Today it was mid strength without being brutal. It is also a course where strategy will win over power every day of the week. The fairways always offer you width but, usually, the longer you hit it the more the fairways narrow. So, the big hitter is left with a choice of risking a tight area or throttling back and playing a slightly longer shot in.

I could bang on about virtually every hole as the WOW factor is definitely here but that would take too long. Seven and eight are outstanding par 4's with the seventh being long and surrounded by trouble both sides the full length of the hole and the eighth doesn't have a single bunker on it but par is gold.

12-14 hug the beach on the right and run south to north and provide some magnificent vistas as well as super golf holes. 16 & 17 normally play back into the wind and then 18 is a beaut finishing hole.

The golfing world owes a debt of gratitude to Mr Pat Ruddy for designing and building this gem and is a better place for it.
