This aerial view of Westport's first six holes and the par 5 18th hole give an excellent impression of this fine golf course.
As autumn approaches late afternoon sunshine adds a blaze of colour to Westport Golf Club.
An accurate approach to the second green is required to avoid the bunkers left and right with a difficult up and down short-sighted left.
An unusual view of the 14th green in early autumn colours shows a very different aspect to this fine par 3.
Hole 3, a more difficult par 3 than it looks, at only 150 yards avoid the bunkers front, left and right.
Hole 9, a beautiful par 3 some 200 yards, prevailing wind into and off the left, most golfers miss right.
Hole 15, Westport's signature hole, a difficult par 5 into the wind, every shot requires precise execution.
Hole 8, this stunning 460 yard downhill par 4 is rated index 2, no wonder with water waiting right.
Longer hitters can reach the 7th green, water right and OB left may favour a lay up and chip and putt for your birdie.
Hole 12, another fine par 3, don't be distracted by the view, club selection is critical here into the wind.
