Boards Golf Society - The European Club 20th April 11.00 AM 2019

The links of The European Club was designed by Pat Ruddy who continues after thirty years
to calibrate the links to meet the challenges of the modern game allowing the champions of today
to express themselves while demanding a cerebral approach for true success.


Year after year the work goes on with Ruddy directing design improvements. Few golf courses have had such prolonged attention from their designers with Donald Ross at Pinehurst being an obvious equivalent.

The result is probably the best links of them all as it is fitted precisely to the modern game and is never allowed to grow old. It benefits from the constant inputs of one of the most astute designers the game has seen.


Next up is - The European Club - 20th April 11.00am

The Green Fee for this outing is €50 and I look forward to seeing you all there.

Regards

I have been looking forward to this one. From the response on Teamer, looks like I am not the only one.

I hope we have enough spots for everyone!

Some courses offset other ones that's the way I'm trying to do it to keep the cost down and spread it out..

Accepted on Teamer and defo in for this - I'll be really interested to see what the winning score is as it's undoubtedly one of the toughest tests in Ireland

I think you'll love it .

One of the best on the east coast . But in my view the east coast is weak from a links perspective.

Whilst the bunkers are not for everyone. You'll be well able for them.

I'm still undecided on difficult / unplayable bunkers . In my mind , yes, a bunker is a hazard, but you should be able to get out.

The more top links I play , you just have to accept that this is a real feature of most top links courses.

In RCD you are going backwards or sideways in maybe 25 % of the bunkers.

I'll be interested what you think . I could be wrong , The European is one of those very split courses, a sort of love hate place.

To be controversial for a second. It is described as a true links . But some of the course does not have a links feel at all . More manufactured coastal . Hopefully Pat Ruddy doesn't read boards . I'll be banished.
