Strandhill Golf Club
Compleet verrassende golfbaan, met zeer leuke holes, met name hole13, is indrukwekkend. Juist door barre weersomstandigheden, erg veel wind en regen, een super ervaring om daar te spelen. De uitzichten op zee zijn geweldig. Kortom een echte aanrader.

Corballis Links Golf Club
Sehr schwerer links Kurs. Schläge oft versteckt. Aber schöne Aussicht aufs Meer. Hat richtig Spaß gemacht. Sanitäre Anlagen sind neu. Aber man kann sich nach der Runde nicht mit einem Bier belohnen, es wird keins angeboten.

Rosapenna Golf Resort
We zijn voor 09:00 uur gestart. Dat scheelde aanmerkelijk in de greenfee. Prachtig clubhuis, gastvrij en historisch (ondanks herbouw na brand). Sandy Hills is een prachtige links baan. Wij speelden met straffe wind (uit Noorden), fris en pittig. Door de duinen, blijf op de fairways, 'stay low' en speel niet verder dan je kunt kijken. Top-ervaring.
