The greatness of Royal Portrush and other quick notes

  • I’m still in Ireland (in the Bushmills Inn, to be exact), having spent the last week playing a fine selection of what the country has to offer. It ranges from better than expected (European Club, Carton House Montgomerie, Baltray, Castlerock), to typical US style golf (Druid’s Glen, K Club), to mind blowing good (Royal Portrush, Portmarnock). I’ve got lots of photos and will post them later, but to those who have played it, Portrush may be the best course in the world. Hard to imagine anything better, and we played in rain and driving wind. Calamity, the par three on the back nine, is all-world. More to come upon my return on Saturday.

  • Portrush , is one of the best I have ever played ! Would be a terrific course for an Open Championship if not in a relatively out of the way place in Northern Ireland !!!!
