    Composite best 18 GB&I golf holes in this months magazine

    I've not read the article yet, and just scanned which courses they picked, without trying to look at the holes picked (although did see no.18).

    I'm going to try and pick my own, before I read it properly.

    Any thoughts, or massive mistakes/oversights made by the chaps from GM towers? I'm sure there are.....

    Disappointed to see that some of the holes are from non links courses

    It would have been more complicated, but i would have liked hole 1 to be a hole 1, and so on. Not pick a random hole to be an arbitrary number choice.

    Agreed, picking 18 superb holes doesn't necessarily have it "flow" as a superb course

    Very much enjoy this sort of list. Crossfield et al did a Greatest 18 recently where they played 18 holes from 18 different courses in Andalucia. Say what you will about Crossfield, it was a brilliant series. Hopefully they'll do similar ones in other locations.

    Blasphemy, blasphemy? Can't be proper list then, can it?

    Maybe next time they could do a 1-18 Links, 1-18 Parkland, 1-18 Heathland / Moorland. Afterwards we could vote on which one we would prefer to play.

    Maybe we should try to put together a forum 'dream 18' but as Val says the holes have to be in the correct sequence.

    Would it have to constitute a sensible par, or could they be 18 par 5's?

    I’ll start

    1st - The Old Course, walking in the footprints of the world’s greatest golfers, not the toughest, just the start of a journey.

    I did this years ago and was astonished how many good 17th holes I had played.

    Slow week in the GM office perhaps.
