    Re: Solo trip to Scotland, info and opinions

    What has become popular in recent years is multi-day competitions, sometimes taking in some great courses (or open qualifier courses, with the final being at a prestigious or an open course venue).

    Check this out, for a list of them, although note that on some, say only 64 of the top 120 get to play at the top course, the other 56 may play a lesser course. Any help in picking, we'll all help:-

    Going on the quality of the courses, and the dates you have mentioned, I'd recommend the Southport classic, Wirral Classic and the Ayrshire kinks cup as very good looking ones. Make sure they still have spaces, also.

    Thsi is exactly what I would like to do! this is valid every day but Sunday right?
