On the flip side, I have no problem seeing Tralee and Lahinch number 2 and 3, you couldn't say they aren't good enough.
Some awful nonsense in it though.
I'd love a system of ranking courses through categorys, like Michelin stars.
Category A B and C, or something similar.
Because these lists are so subjective and are really harsh on some courses who could do with the money, and are quality courses but are without the prestige or buzz.
Category A might stretch to quality links courses like Rosslare, that are excellent courses, and greater value to play, a classic links course on amazing links land, nobody would complain after 18 holes on these type of courses,
Even more im portant are the number of parkland course that have nothing between them in terms of quality, but could be miles apart in rankings.
Is Castlemnock not a Cat A parkland course, Glasson, Esker hills etc They are well down the rankings.
Is Carlow that much better a course than them?
Macreddin would be a Cat A course, not on the top 100 list list.
