Sunday in Southport

3rd July 2011 - Played what I would call a good round today on a very tricky nine hole course, Southport Old Links in their 3 Division Open medal. A lot of players don't like nine hole layouts, but I can honestly say that Southport Old Links breaks the "repetitive mould" here, as they have gone to great lengths to adjust the way you play the 2nd nine with a selection of alternate teeing areas that give a new challenge to your second time around the layout. The greens here were fantastic and gave me my best putting round of the year so far with 32 putts, careful choice of clubs from the tee helped too as this is a course where you need to have your head screwed-on right to play well. Nett 78 on a Par 72 course was the result. I've included this link to the course Anyone who is interested in playing it can get straight to the details, if you are thinking about it and want some company - then email me at Swing Easy!
