laid, with Dunluce Castle in the distance.
The new holes (7 and 8) will be routed over a lovely bit of links terrain that sits down in a valley, between the dunes.... and that, perhaps, is the only negative of these new holes, as they will take two of the Valley course's best holes out of play. The Valley may only be the 'second' course, but it is a cracker in its own right.

become the Dunluce's new 7th and 8th.
A very good article by Brian Keogh, of IrishGolfDesk.com, on the current state of play at Royal Portrush.
