Played from the back tees the course was pretty long, particularly the par threes, with three well over 200 yds. It was a fair test, with some pretty wide fairways, and well positioned hazards, but enough challenge to make it interesting. Playing in August, the greens had been aerated a week or so prior, so were playing quite slow (maybe touching 8 stimp) with a lot of grain, although rolling pretty well, considering. I played on my own at 8.30am and there were only two other groups on the course, both of which let me through immediately, so pace of play was fast and I finished in around 2hrs 15 minutes. The clubhouse had a bit of renovation going on ahead of the season opening on 1st September, but was in good condition, with excellent changing facilities and a welcoming bar. The staff were very engaging and I was given a complimentary coffee before play. Bar menu was on the expensive side, but not extortionate, and the manager was happy for me to bring my family (with young children) for lunch. Value for money was good - green fee through YGT was around €60 and there was a summer deal on for a cart for €10. Overall an excellent experience, and I will be back on future trips.
