    Re: Course Recommendation Between Manchester and Walesland!

    Delamere is generally always a firm course and is a cracker, Kaz.

    Sandiway is a slightly better course in my opinion, also looks like a well draining course. Both very similar to Lanark in terms of layout, although the surrounding views arent as nice as Lanark, but Sandiway is probably even better as a course.

    I think both are only about 20 mins from the M6 and a pretty straightish run.

    I think that the M6 onto the M5 is closed at the mo, so from both, you could take the A49 cross country route down to Chepstow also, which may not be too bad, also, from both of them. Check the traffic situation.

    It shouldn't really be anymore than an hour detour maximum but thinking about it, it might not work due to the travel time for you to get there from Scotsville and the nights drawing in now. It's pretty gloomy down here now by 6.30 🤔

    Kaz i'd take Pedro's route and go cross country A49, its a much nicer drive than the dreaded M6.

    If you want to head over to liverpool you're welcome to come to mine for a round.

    M5 just off the M6 has got roadworks for next 2 years so can expect major delays, more so in weekdays than Sats. Good shout for A49 , as journey down Wye Valley this time of year can be spectacular

    Great shout for the A49. Dual to south of Wrexham and apart from a few squiggly bits its a really good run. May well turn out to be quicker from the Midlands down over.

    Cheers folks, will look into the A49.... google maps suggests it'll take about an hour longer than M6/M5 however?

    The M5/M6/M42 form a ringroad around the Birmingham conurbation so you could stay on the M6 southbound then peel off onto the M42 and follow it round then pick up the M5 again

    Re: Course Recommendation Between Manchester and Walesland!

    I drive M54, M6 fairly regularly, I just normally stick with motorways if looking to do a trip as quick as possible, as even when they are slow, they are normally quicker than A road detours.

    If after a top course, then would definitely recommend Beau like a few others have mentioned, it is lovely there, the terrain is very good and the greens have some proper slopes on them.

    Any thoughts on Houghwood? Looks good geographically and a bit less pricey than some of the above!
