    I'm not. I just laugh at the lies that were spouted.

    If you’re not that bothered why mention it then ?

    And lies ? How can someone “lie” about a golf Course review ?

    Never, not many better than Birkdale. I really like WG but it’s number in the top 100 is probably correct

    I love Machrihanish and have had some great trips round there and look forward to going again. Need to get back round to see how the Dunes has come on.

    I prefer Machrishanish Dunes over Machrianish.

    I am another who prefers Dunes to the old, yes it quirky fun some might say the windmills are missing from the greens but I loved it, leaving in 8 hours to play the Autumn pairs.

    Ps it's a great drive and not as long as you think, approximately 2.75 hrs for me door to car park and that ain't pushing it. As said earlier it can be bad if you get stuck behind Sunday drivers of agricultural traffic.

    Guess you need to be in the know. However I guess it's best to let sleeping dogs "lie".

    Sometimes knowledge is king.

    Definitely!

    But on a serious note don’t you think course reviews should consider the experience for all golfers?
