The trees wrap around you all day long at Charleville. Hundreds were lost during the 2014 storms but that has only improved this Co. Cork parkland. Holes now have more air without losing any of the challenges. And of those there are plenty, with gently sliding doglegs greeting you on many tee boxes and fairways that put a premium on positioning off the tee. It is not a long course (par 71, 6,467 yards, back tees) with half the holes falling between 350 and 380 yards, but the doglegs come in different sizes, calling for smart golf. Peaceful, embracing and rewarding.
