This is a beautiful place with mature specimen trees, the River Liffey, attractive lakes and some fabulous buildings.

The course itself is tough and in pristine condition, with tricky greens that are true, consistent and fast. Hazards abound in the form of rivers, lakes, and the many bunkers.

It is fair, even though a poor shot – or a slightly misjudged one – can be severely punished with a lost ball.

There are some very dramatic holes that are fun and challenging, and it cannot fail to be a thrill to play the holes over which the 2006 Ryder Cup was played. SP

+ Immaculate conditioning; exciting from start to finish
– Very expensive; easy to lose a lot of golf balls
