    You won't be disappointed in any of the courses....

    Portrush is as you'd expect top notch.

    There is a bit of work going on around Glashedy in preparation for next years Irish open, with bunkers being added/changed so expect some of them to be GUR there are also some new tee boxes being added but they are for the pros so don't interfere with our normal tees.

    When you get to the 4th tee on Glashedy don't forget to look behind you up onto the rocky outcrop about 160 yards or so back into the farmers field and you will see where the new tee is going in for the pros, it's gonna be a superb tee box and also making it around a 250 yard carry just to get to the fairway.

    We have two great golf courses at Ballyliffin and you will love them both, interested to hear what you guys think of them after you play.......hopefully the weather will be kind to you as well

    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    1. Best Course you have played - Sunningdale New, no Old, no.... one of those two

    2. Best greens you have played - Crewe last Saturday, just couldn't believe how good and true they were given time of year and recent weather

    3. Hardest Course - Royal Aberdeen, tough as old boots and in minging weather was a real challenge.

    4 Best Value - Probably Royal Aberdeen, got a few rounds there for a modest competition entry fee

    5. Notable Mentions - Really enjoyed the old course at St Pierre, great condition for the time of year and some interesting and challenging holes.

    3. Hardest Course: Muirfield - killer rough

    4 Best Value: Hard to say as I've rarely paid full whack this year. A course that greatly exceeded my initially modest expectations was Bathgate, good routing, interesting elevations changes, decent greens modest pricing.

    5. Notable Mentions : Comrie - 9 hole Perthshire gem & Elie - old school delight
    Bathgate is a gem, vastly underrated

    Unique for a few reasons but if it’s to do with the Ryder Cup then everyone should know why
