Make that Royal Dublin, not Old Dublin. I had Old Head on my mind.  We had a great caddie at Royal Dublin, Christie Boyd was his name.  A quintessential Irish caddie, in his 70's I recall at the time he'd been looping at Royal Dublin since his teens.
It's a classic links layout, like you'll play should you ever make it to Ireland or Scotland, an absolute gem. You'll love it and likely become a true linksman.  Other nice links layouts around here include Eastward Ho in Chatham, MA on Cape Cod,  Kittansett in Marion, MA. bordering Buzzards' Bay and Old Sandwich in Plymouth, MA.
I have had the opportunity to play Sankaty Head several times during the summer when weather conditions are great. I've long wanted to play in the autumn/winter when authentic Irish links conditions exist. Hope this is the year to do it and rekindle memories of the trip to Ireland I took with my dad back in 1989 when we played Old Dublin, Portmarnock, Rosses Point, Lahinch, Tralee, Ballybunion and Killarney.
