    4 Best Value - Swinley Forest, signed in by a friend.

    5. Notable Mentions - I've had a good year this year. Hankley, Broadstone, Parkstone, Portmarnock
    I'm interested in these nominations!

    Playing the European in a couple of weeks and expecting it to be the best course I play this year. Played Parkstone in their men's invitation last month and not only were they the best greens I've putted on this year but possibly the best ever!! They were quite simply superb.

    I'll come back to this thread in a couple of weeks

    It's all subjective. I played the mixed open in Ferndown festival week and thought the greens were superb, the best I'd played on this year. Parkstone for me was good but I suppose I was expecting a little more. I enjoyed your track more than Ferndown and Parkstone, again it's all subjective. Enjoy the European, we had 36 holes there in July and I found it tough.
    We don't stop playing because we grow old.....We grow old because we stop playing.

    ( UK only )

    1. Best Course - Sunningdale New - only just better than the Old, the par 3's nudged it for me

    2. Best greens - Hollinwell - simply superb roll and consistent speeds

    3. Hardest Course - Kedleston from the Blues in the club champ's & Kedleston Goose - with the wind blowing it's long and tough

    4 Best Value - Hankley for HFH

    5. Notable Mentions - Royal Porthcawl was fantastic, just a shame that the fog prevented any grand vistas. Sunningdale, Hankley & New Zealand for the food.

    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    1. Best Course you have played

    Hillside. I know you should plump for its more famous neighbour, however I thought hillside was amazing. Even though I lost a shed load of balls.

    2. Best greens you have played

    Birkdale was set up for the open when I played it. Stands up etc.

    The greens were amazing.

    3. Hardest Course

    Hillside or Walton Heath. Maybe just because I had a stinker both days.

    4 Best Value

    Royal Liverpool, Birkdale, hillside, brabazon, Walton Heath, mottram hall and the mere were all freebies. With beer thrown in.

    Can I count them 😁?



    5. Notable Mentions

    Hart common near Wigan. 13 quid and always playable. Top little course.

    Sunningdale old for me in all categories however got an exciting trip to the states for family holiday and have treated the wife to a night at Bay Hill for a spa. Wonder why and have also booked a round at Streamsong blue.

    Haven't played Edzell in years, had heard it was struggling but going by your report I hope I was misinformed. Lovely golf course.
