    Finally agree with you on something.

    West Lancs is a quality track, toughest course I have played on the NW coast, We played it on a fairly easy day and I could see on a windy day with the rough grown up a bit it could easily been unplayable.

    Good practise areas as well, didn't like the clubhouse one bit.

    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.
    All about opinions bud and I appreciate that but Downfield isn't that well rated up here. It's nice but that's about it. I also played Downfield on a decent day, it wasn't a bog at all. I also played Ladybank on a day with 30mph+ winds and it was tough as old boots.

    We'll need to agree to disagree on what's better but you'll find yourself in the minority with your thought.

    Not sure when you are playing Maidenhead but there greens are fantastic already and will be getting quicker. Whole course is in great shape as of last Saturday

    I played Downfield about 7 years ago, and probably when I'd only played about 2-3 of the top 100 courses at the time and really enjoyed it.

    A 9 out of 10 course for me then, would probably only be a 6 out of 10 now after playing about 40 of them now, so your ratings can change.

    I think I played Ladybank about 3-4 years ago, and my mates who had played it before really built it up for me, as well as most people on here. I just wasnt blown away by it and only about 1-2 holes can I remember. I do remember it as flat-ish though. I cant remember loads from Downfield either, but do remember some elevation changes, nicely shaped holes, and it being quite good

    Only played both once and I'd play both again, but not as nailed on as the Hillside/Formby debate.

    We'll discuss it at Wallasey one night - when are you down next?

    Are you doing Birkdale?

    Down in a fortnight, it would be good to catch up for a knock as it's been way too long
