Panellists’ Comments: “Its recent holding of the Irish Open was, save for the rain, an unmitigated success – very many of the visiting Professionals attested to the wondrous design of Harry Colt, a view shared by most visiting amateurs for many a year previous”; “This should be the first course listed on any itinerary of golf in Ireland”; “Fantastic golf course with great variety, a beautiful setting and full of the tradition and history of the game”; “On a good day, there may be nowhere nicer to play golf.”
