This is without one of the best links courses that I have ever played with not only terrific holes - not one was disappointing - but matchless views too.

If you are a visitor and hire clubs, I has a set of virtually new Titleist irons ans woods and a brand new Scotty Cameron putter!

We travel to Northern Ireland every "even" year and visit this wonderful test of golf each time. There are two courses, the Dunluce, which will hold a British Open in the future and the Valley course to the west. Both are fine facilities run by the same people but the Dunluce links costs a premium and is a bit harder than the Valley course (e.g. driver into a par 3 when the wind is in your face). The Valley course, home of Graeme McDowell, naturally receives the local play. Both are worth the effort to conquer.

Played both The Dunluce and The Valley in September 2010. Both courses were in excellent condition and an enjoyable time was had by all.

I guess my only criticism is that the media in the UK (and local pros) 'hype up' The Dunluce.

Glad to see that The Open will be returning. Hopefully some other courses in that part of the World may get a look in too?...

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.
