    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    1. Best Course you have played - Sunningdale Old

    2. Best greens you have played - Hadley Wood

    3. Hardest Course - Sunningdale Old...purely as I struck it like a dog that day!

    4. Best Value - Sunningdale. To play both courses, with food before, in the middle and after etc etc. Bargain.

    5. Notable Mentions - The Warwickshire Earls & Kings. Hankley Common - Excellent...just didn't fit into the above!

    Not really played many different UK courses this year so far, so not a lot to report on!

    1. Best Course you have played: Muirfield - even in the terrible weather on the day

    2. Best greens you have played; Gleneagles Kings course - lightening quick but true

    3. Hardest Course: Muirfield - killer rough

    4 Best Value: Hard to say as I've rarely paid full whack this year. A course that greatly exceeded my initially modest expectations was Bathgate, good routing, interesting elevations changes, decent greens modest pricing.

    5. Notable Mentions : Comrie - 9 hole Perthshire gem & Elie - old school delight
    North Berwick Golf Club - Handicap 10.6

    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    Okay, based on the rather limited experience of my one week holiday in Manchester:

    1. Best Course you have played
    Warrington, just a stunningly beautiful golf course and in pristine condition, even at this time of the year. Very enjoyable.

    2. Best greens you have played
    hard to say, since I have been in the UK in September, so a lot of courses had work done on their greens, Davyhulme Park probably, but might be different during the rest of the year

    3. Hardest Course
    Ellesmere ... so many slopes and some really tricky holes. It was also quite wet when I played it, which did not help.

    4 Best Value
    Boysnope ... nothing special, just an honest to god golf course, but in good condition and when you can play 18 holes for 13 quid on a Sunday as a visitor, that's pretty decent.

    5. Notable Mentions
    Frodsham was a very beautiful course as well. I really struggled with the wet and clingy rough, though.
