No golf course is perfect, not even the Old Course. Even among the great courses of the world, there are few without a least a couple flaws. But if there ever was a perfect course, it might be the Dunluce course at Royal Portrush. Maybe you could say it might be too challenging for some, but that’s about it. Everything about it is inspires: the setting, routing, greens, the history, each hole after unforgettable hole. Even the drive up to the club. Reviewer after reviewer says playing Dunluce left them with a giant grin plastered across their faces. That’s perfection.
