Sean, 15 and 18 have only modest dunes that provide a slight angle to play. These low dunes allow your mind's eye to visualize the landing area. You don't have 13 pictured and I can't call it to memory.13 is a very short hole that leaves a wedge to the green after a layup; why bother driving into oblivion?
All of this is subjective, but I found Portsalon and Narin/Portnoo to be more the kind of course I would want to play continuously versus Enniscrone and Carne. The problem for me and Ballybunion is that the other courses in Kerry and south of that aren't as appealing as the ones from Sligo to the north. I had a sense that the travel industry infrastructure is well in place from Shannon to the south, but to the north it is not as developed. When I called Portsalon in Feb. for a June tee time they just said "we'll see you then". How refreshing.
My preferences are EnniscroneRosses Point/DonegalCarneStrandhillYou will be hard pressed to find five links of such varying character and quality for the sort of money they ask anywhere in the world. Ciao
Sean, I have played in Northern Ireland, none yet in the Republic. So questions..How are apart are those courses?What about the craic and the lodging? Good choices?Thanks,Bill
10, well, just funk up the green a bit and as the French say Bob's yer uncle, job sorted etc etc.
For those such as yourself who are directionally challenged - give it 2.5 hours.
