    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    Pretty quite year course wise for me, only one new one.

    1. Best Course you have played - Ladybank, finally ticked it off after many years of wanting.

    2. Best greens you have played - West Lancs, still not seen a bobble in the 10+ times I've played there.

    3. Hardest Course - Silloth, blowing a hoolie!!

    4 Best Value - Silloth, pound for pound the best value golf I've played anywhere.

    5. Notable Mentions - Pleasington as it's now my home track ;-)
    Hit a little white ball round a field into a small hole. Repeat.

    Current Handicap: 12 2016 Target: Lower than 12

    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    1. Best Course you have played - Sunningdale Old

    2. Best greens you have played - West Lancs and St Annes Old Links

    3. Hardest Course - Hoylake of the back tees in what felt like a force 10 !

    4 Best Value - Comrie (Perthshire) but have to mention the deal LQ got at Sunningdale and New Zealand

    5. Notable Mention - Sandiway, Stockport, Fairhaven and Bolton Old Links

    and i'll add :-

    6. Most underwhelming - Celtic Manor 2010

    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    1. Best Course you have played - The Old Course. Just spiritual and awe inspiring

    2. Best greens you have played - Highland Gate in South Africa. Amazing conditioning and just outrageously true.

    3. Hardest Course - Saunton East. Hard but so beautiful

    4 Best Value - St Andrews. Lucky enough to play with a ticket holder

    5. Notable Mentions - St Michaels has a superb back nine. Royal North Devon gets a mention for the most over rated field with pins on it.

    Saying this, I still have a trip to Northern Ireland coming up where Royal County Down, Royal Portrush, both Ballyliffen Courses and Scrabo are all getting a whirl might change my judgement

    i don’t get that you can say that about RND when the old course is basically exactly the same..... one massive field with no undulations etc

    I have done this on courses I have played this year. IF you had a pair of danglies, you could have been there. And no one reads what Phil writes anyway

    No way. Those courses are nowhere near the same nor should they be mentioned in the same breath. The Old Course is bloody amazing while RND was bloody awful

    Best course Birkdale
    best greens Birkdale.
    Hardset West Lancs always gets me.
    Value Lancaster £25 in a open fantastic course.
    notable Prestbury quite happily play my last round here but weather was bad or it would be best it's that good.
