Well it's taken way too long, but finally got to play Royal Birkdale on Friday. I just wish I'd played there sooner! What a fabulous course! Having walked it many times while watching the Open Championship, to play it is simply magnificent.
Every hole has it's individuality and charms, sure the rough is quite tough, but you shouldn't be in it should you? If you play sensibly and think your way around, you can score well. I certainly did (on some holes), some less so 🙂
It's expensive, but for a treat, I'd recommend it to anyone, I'll be back there for sure!
Best course I've played by a country mile.
