Letter from the far West Coast

By - Michael Viney

"For those aggrieved by the steady annexation of Ireland's sand-dune systems for golf links, the current frustrations of Mr Donald Trump may offer bothe some comfort and continuing apprehension. Having decided not to build a second course at Aberdeen, in Scotland (after his failure to halt a proposed windfarm nearby), Trump recently bought the 18-hole links at Doonbeg, on the proposed Atlantic coast of Co Clare. The ink was scarcely dry on the cheque when last winter's exceptional storms tore into the dunes, turning several of the course's existing holes into undesigned water hazards."
