    That's all the new ones I've got booked in at the moment, hoping this is the year I get to Delamere and/or Sandiway though and fancy a few opens around the NW not necessarily at top end clubs/courses. Loads round here I've not played, cheap opens are a good day out aswell.
    Yep, when's Qwerty posting up my good idea?

    Re: New courses this year?

    Lincoln Quaker - All new to me.

    West Lancs - Played it, very tough in the wind, you'll like it more than SAOL.

    Royal North Devon
    Saunton East & West - Played them both when I was rubbish at links, would like to go back - beware the snakes.
    Kidderminster
    St Mellion - Better than Woodhall spa.
    Woodbridge
    Ipswich
    Wallasey - Beauty
    Delamere - Would be in the top 100, if in Surrey.
    Sandiway - My last NW premium course still to play.
    Cuddington - Might sneak it in in 2017 or 2018
    Sunningdale New & Old - Likewise
    New Zealand - I might buy a boater.
    Swinley Forest - So looking forward to Swinley, more than sunnydale.
    St Andrews, New & Eden & Jubilee -
    Scotscraig
    Ladybank - over rated, Downield is better
    Blackwell
    Manchester - 1st in the team open 2015, 2nd in 2016, I'd take 3rd with you in my team, now!!!!!
    Royal County Down - Hope its not baltic in November
    Royal Portrush - Looking orward to playing it before the open.
    Ballyliffin Glashedy & Old - Heard lots about it, hopefully youve picked well
    Castlerock - likewise

    Another few Top 100 courses planned this year.

    [/QUOTE]

    Also played Royal Cinque and Royal St. Georges the other month.

    I want to try and get Lindrick, Enville and Ilkley, given half the chance.

    Hopefully a few more on top of them, probably down south if I can swing a few weekends in. Might get a sneaky one in in Trieste or Verona, if not too far from the hotels.

    LB, Downfield isn't in Ladybanks league bud, unsure how you came to that conclusion. That thought would baffle many people up here.

    Disagree mate. I dont follow the teachings of Craw£%$@.

    Before you say that Downfield can be a bog, I played it in glorious June iirc and loved it. I found Ladybank very flat, and well.....plain.

    Too right Martin. Totally different courses.

    Downfield is a parkland course and quite good in its own right. Played it last year in good weather. but boy was it long. no run on the fairways at all. I had a good round there, but i don't think i had anything less that a 5 iron for a 2nd shot until the 13th.

    Ladybank a heathland, great course tough as well esp off the back tee
