    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    Best course : Sunningdale New.
    Best greens : Liphook, Ferndown and Hindhead.
    Hardest course : St Enodoc in the wind and rain a few hours ago. Made Burnham and Berrow seem easy.
    Best value : Hankley Common. £60 for golf and great food. No contest.
    Notable mentions : Swinley for just being a stunning place to play golf. Blackmoor for being my favourite place to play golf on a regular basis. As long as I live on the area I would never move clubs. A place where everybody knows your name.

    4 Best Value - Catterick Golf Club, great course, great food and cheap as chips.

    5. Notable Mentions - Eaglescliffe, Consett and Crook were all a decent knock for a day out.
    Is Wynyard worth the money? There and Rockcliffe are the only two biggish courses in the area I haven't played and the length of Rockcliffe puts me off.

    Good to hear about Catterick. Haven't played it but I met someone previously who rated it and you have backed them up. One to play next year.

    I guess Rockcliffe has matured a lot in the last couple of years. I've played it twice, and wouldn't rush back. Wynyard is good when its dry. Two very different nines. Front nine is tighter, and tree lined. Back nine is very open.

    Catterick is excellent.

    1. Best Course you have played..........Mmm tricky one not sure if it would be Old course or Muirfield

    2. Best greens you have played...........Muirfield

    3. Hardest Course...........Though some may gasp at this, The old course St Andrews. it Was rock hard when played it and was extremely difficult to get near a flag. if it had been like this for the Dunhill, no one would have scored 10 under let alone 24

    4 Best Value............. Forfar £20 in our Sept jolly. really enjoyable

    5. Notable Mentions........... Gullane No1 and No2. Played a couple of weeks ago and in excellent shape

    We played there in September in our Autumn Jolly and the greens were very worn and bumpy. Looked like a lot of traffic had been on them and the pins in the same place for a while.

    didn't enjoy it at all

    Re: End Of Season Course Awards

    1. Best Course you have played - Royal St Georges. Lucky to have it so close and it never fails to deliver.

    2. Best greens you have played - Sundridge Park - East . Played it recently and they were the best I have ever seen.

    3. Hardest Course - Thurlestone (very windy day!)

    4 Best Value - Royal Cinque Ports - played a twilight round, £40/each in the height of summer. We had the course to ourselves and it was 70 degrees and the wind was down.........stunning afternoon and the best way to end a day at work.

    5. Notable Mentions - Chart Hills - After years of under investment it was great to see that is changing and next Year I predict this course will be back to its former glory. Great track. Cooden was great fun as always and enjoyed East Sussex National East and West after a long break away from that place.
    In the bag:
    Taylormade SLDR 9.5 deg
    3 Ping Crossover
    TaylorMade Rocketbalz 19 deg and 21deg rescue.
    Mizuno JPX825pro 4-Pw
    60deg lob wedge Callaway X
    Ping Kedsh Putter

    Handicap - 9.6
