It’s hard on a girl if her older sister is Sophia Loren! Although built on similar, stirring terrain to The Old Course in the 1980s, in many ways ‘The Cashen’ is more irascible, more spectacular, more flirtatious, more brutal and more unforgiving and more difficult to tame than her older, more famous sibling. In a strong wind, ‘Miss Cashen’ verges on being impossible – her dunes are higher, her valleys are deeper, her greens more undulating.
The links changes mood unrecognizably from one day to the next, requiring acute precision especially off the tee as fairways frequently disappear around corners. The careless can easily run out of fairway and find their golf ball buried in marram. Thanks to some high dunes and very uneven greens, it will keep you guessing throughout and is a layout that really rewards intelligent, considered play. The Cashen Course, though difficult, will provide you with an enjoyable round of golf from start to finish.
