  1. Evidently the new St Patricks Links at Rosapenna is due to open next week. Anyone planning to go up and play or heard about the new layout?
  2. Less hidden than Gold Mountain, Gamble Sands, Wine Valley, Palouse Ridge or Pronghorn all of which have been mentioned?
  3. Langdon Farms perhaps?
  4. If we are talking Ireland, my simple advice for a week's trip is to stay in Dublin for a couple of days, drive to Waterville via the Ring of Kerry (play WV) , then drive to Lahinch to see the Cliffs of Moher (play LH), maybe stopover in Galway or Sligo, then go back to Dublin and see the neolithic sites. Others will have ideas about Scotland.
  5. We are planning a trip to Bandon next April and the idea is to arrive at Vancouver/Canada and drive to Chambers Bay day of arrival, play there and stay one night somewhere near Tecoma before going on to Bandon next day. Is that feasible? We thought play Salish Cliffs on the way back.
  6. I almost got a trip going for Tampa which went in a tight loop: Innisbrook / Copperhead World Woods / Pine Barrens Black Diamond Ranch / Quarry Bay Hill Streamsong / Red Blue Black with alts to Eaglebrooke, Dunedin, Southern Hills, Sothern Dunes
  7. As a matter of interest what is current thinking on the ranking of the Pinehurst courses, obviously #2 is numero uno but where do the others rate? I believe there have been a number of rehabs so the pecking order may reflect that. In other words which course would be must-plays over a limited stay.
  8. The Yank will take you further down the rabbit hole. Nice problem.
  9. Pennard has good wraps as does Aberdovey. Nefyn has amazing views and Royal Porthcawl is the class act.

    Commonground is a superb course designed by Tom Doak and used for the early rounds of the US Mid Amateur in 2019. It's also very reasonably priced and a lot of fun to play.
  11. Royal Lytham #1 Torrey Pines #3 Pebble #7 Royal Troon #8 Postage Stamp Royal Portrush #16 Calamity Corner TPC Sawgrass #17 Pacific Dunes #17 they would be my top 7
  12. I dont go for this relativism thing. Objectively some courses are just better than others. You just have to sort out why. Flat greens, straight fairways, shallow bunkers etc etc are probably signs of a not so good course. On the other hand if the bunkers are in the "right" places and the fairways have the "right" undulations you might think better of it. Surely there are ways that simpletons like us can see the difference.
  13. Anyone played the Studebaker 9 ??
