As far as links go, Troon for the most part is fairly flat especially the first and last six holes, but there are several preferred angles to play to (based on firmness and pin placements) that I think it moves it from boring to subtle. Iíve not played Dornoch ó is it subtle?
We feel what we feel. Someoneís subtle (and brilliant) is another personís dull and uninteresting layout. We all react to the stimulation differently. The person who feels underwhelmed isn't wrong, or right, it's just how they feel. We all see the same things through different perceptions. Food for thought: It's a far safer approach to do paint the entire canvas and clarify the composition, than it is to use fewer brush strokes and rely on the viewers ability to interpret your intent.
