Murderous Murcar

A stunning outward nine holes, followed by a murderous trip back into the breeze, what a track, quirky, stunning and brutal - a championship links.

Hole 3 might be as cool a hole you will ever see, a split fairway and downhill approach to a green surrounded by dunes.

Hole 6 is possibly the signature hole, a sharply doglegging par 4, which when played in fast conditions is a tactical minefield.

Hole 10 is at once stunning, confusing and nerve wracking, a good tee shot is rewarded by a view of the green, anything but and it's time to just stay alive and look to make a shot up on the next. A chip in produced a miracle 3 here.

Hole 11 is about as awkward hole as I have played, drive to the top of the hill, watch the mounds in the right side of the fairway, if out of position a conservative plan is best here.

Hole 16 is a wicked and beautiful 3 par, a long iron over a valley is not for the faint of heart.
