Played the valley twice on Friday, then Dunlace twice on Saturday- Dunlace is everything that you would expect for a course this high on the world rankings- you need to be able to create shots, high, low, left right, and be prepared to be disapppointed when a great shot ends up in the junk or pleased when a skulled shot leaves you a birdie putt.
Great history, strongly recommend taking a caddie for the first round (ask for George, he has great stories and will keep you entertained).
Course played medium fast , could easily see it faster when the Open comes here, but it was very playable- there are some bunkers that are hopeless- let you caddie go get the ball and take an unplayable, trust me- if he says don't bother with the shot, then for safety's sake, don't bother-
Some dastardly pin positions out there, and if the wind is up, bogey is a good score on any hole- if there isn't any wind, some birdies will be had, the par 5s are not very long and reachable, just be careful with the putter.
Excellent helpful staff, they have much to be proud of.
