But we are here for the golf... 

The traditional design of the course was reconfigured to include holes down by the seaside dunes and that has really captured the character and personality at Enniscrone. Therefore, it is no surprise that with a name like the Dunes Course, dunes are the main feature at Enniscrone. On some holes you are teeing off from the top of dunes – the evaluation of the tee shot really forces you to keep the ball as low as possible as if it catches any resisting wind, it is bound to go very high and reduce your overall distance. The other point to note about the dunes is that you must maneuver your way through them. The Dunes Course is a described by the club as a “bump and run” course. Keeping that ball low, and away from the dunes, will yield good scores.
