    Buckingham or Rye Hill

    Tomorrow (Wed) I have a day off and an AG voucher to use and these two courses are looking an option.
    Anyone able to help sway me?
    Condition etc

    Will also be solo if anyone at a loose end. (Midday ish)
    Newbury direction is my other option.

    Re: Buckingham or Rye Hill

    Not a great deal to choose between them quality wise (albeit i havent played either for a few years). Buckingham a bit shorter and suffers a bit more if wet (albeit should be fine currently), Rye Hill a longer track, hillier and quite exposed if windy.

    Having a quick peek on TOT, Magnolia Park not an option for you?

    Outside chance I could join if youre at Buckingham but wont know until the morning to whether i can move a meeting or not

    Edit: dont you have to book the AG voucher games several days in advance?

    Ah, you are correct, I had not spotted the 3 days in advance bit in the T&Cs. I have driven past Buckingham many times which was one reason.
    Magnolia would have been an option, had some iffy review on that site, but prefer knowledge from here.

    I was touch n go with other things I need to do tomorrow, so will look out for another date.

    We played Magnolia this year and it was a mess - worst tees I have ever seen , greens were shocking - it was awful

    Buckingham is a decent course , a bit dull

    Yes, will do.
    I looked back as I used a voucher back in May and booked it less than 24 hours prior, this new T&C is a pain 😩

    Having played both Magnolia Park GC and Buckingham GC this year, there's no comparison in my opinion. Magnolia Park is better in every way, on course and off course.
