  1. I went for a week in Cornwall in January. Couldnt fit in Enodoc and Trevose but one course ended up my all time favourite.Perranporth near Newquay. St Mellion is awesome as well. Another very good one with stunning scenery is Mullion down near Lands End. Going to do another week down there as soon as I can.
  2. I listen to it if Im driving in the morning. I really like Ken Bruce as a dj plays some great music Ive not heard for years.
  3. If I retire back to Scotland then Id want to stay in Largs. Played Routenburn and Largs a couple of years ago and enjoyed thrm both for different reasons.
  4. Played Dunaverty a couple of years ago. Loved it. View from 11th tee stunning.
  5. I was staying in Largs last Friday after playing in Dunoon. Thought about West Kilbride on the Saturday twilight rate but ended up staying in Newton Stewart and played Portpatrick which was excellent as well. As I play on my own most of the time I leave the more expensive ones till winter rates and anything over 100 quid will have to wait till I retire and play with one of my pals.
  6. I preferred the Dunes as I found it more enjoyable. The Links .I had to really concentrate off every tee..at the first I just played safe taking a shorter route over the sand. Ended up with a 6 though .it was right into a strong wind .made it seem about 600 yards. Shiskine was a golfing experience in the evening sunshine. I cant think of any better location.
  7. Machrihanish I thought was really tough .have to be accurate off the tee but a very good course but for me I enjoyed the Dunes more. Thought it was exceptional.played in 45mph plus winds but that made it even more fun. The greens are amazing and surprisingly I didnt realise views would be bettet on the Dunes. On the main Macrihanish coursr apart from the opening and closing 2 holes..you seem to just focus on each hole as you cant see other holes.
  8. I really liked Balnagask in Aberdeen. Just picked it on the morning .thought it was a cracking course in really good nick. Downfield in Dundee later that day was awesome. I thought Duff House Royal in Banff was way overated. Nice condition but a lot of similar holes.
  9. Just completed the 100 plus courses a year for the 5th year running. Went round Scotland a few weeks ago .played Blair Atholl..Carrbridge.Nethy Bridge..Granton on Spey .Kings Inverness..Moray Old and New..Hopeman..Royal Tarlair.Duff House Royal..Balnagask in Aberdeen and last but defo not least Downfield in Dundee Just on another week ..Darley in Troon..Machrie Bay.Corrie and Shiskine in Arran ..Macrihanish and Machrihanish Dunes..Kyles of Bute..Blairmore.Innellan and Cowal all near Dunoon.
  10. 4 years ago .I decided to do the North Coast 500 playing golf on the way round and staying in different place each night. Enjoyed it so much that 2 weeks later went round the Welsh coast. Every year from then gone round different part of Scotland and Wales playing golf. Done over 100 courses each year for last 4 years now. Did Devon and Cornwall in january when roads quiet and hotel prices low .didnt realise people down these parts were so friendly.
  11. Punk took over when I was in my late teens followed by two tone so my fav band is the Skids..seen them a couple of times in last few years. Also liked Stranglers..Clash..Stiff Little Fingers .The Beat.. Favourite male singer Gerry Rafferty and female singer Enya. Love the Proclaimers and the film Sunshine on Leith. If im driving in the morning.I really like listening to Ken Bruce on radio 2. He plays lots of stuff that I liked buthavent heard in years.
  12. If you go for a test drive from Durham area to see if you are fit enough to drive back to London..my thoughts are you would pick easier roads to drive like dual carraigeways. You cannot just end up in Barnard Castle ..you have to specifically select it as a destination .there areloads of different roundabouts around Bishop Auckland with so many alternatives. The road to Barnard Castle is a wee offshoot on one of the roundabouts..and is a particularly tricky one to drive. Barnard Castle itself is not easy to negotiate with a steep downhiller to the river. Its all fucking hogwash and anyone beli
  13. I have SMITHY 61 on all my shirts..was too expensive to have irnbruman 61.
  14. I really enjoyed the program. Not a fan of Redknapp but the program was more about the players. We had a group of us on a golf trip in Dumfries last year and Paul Merson turned up at breakfast. As he was on his own.he asked if he could join us and was chatting away like we were his mates. Really nice bloke and I think he came across that way on the program.
  15. Sad to hear of his passing. No matter that I didn't like Leeds or England , he was a player that you would want in your team rather than against you. Not many players achieve legendary status at their clubs but he certainly was at Leeds. Just hearing the tributes to him from reporters that worked with him and fellow players - he was incredibly popular - hard as nails on the pitch and a decent bloke off it. Don't think he ever patched up his feud with Francis Lee though
