Sean - I dont often disagree with you but I'd say Weston is probably nearer a 3 on the TD scale, possibly a 4, not that a 3 is bad, Toms scale is quite strict. What did Tom give Burnham was it a 6? Weston is pretty unloved in the area and it does have some good bits. As a course, its fair and everyting is pretty much there in front of you, play well you will score well. Normally the bits that golfers say they dont like is the stretch 8-12 and perhaps 16 and 17. The 5th and 6th are good holes, but they lie wet a lot, both are strong 4s, well over 400, but you walk from the 4th green to the 5th tee, then from the 6th green to 7th tee through a caravan park, which is not great, I know the club could have bought this years ago and regret they didn't. I particulary like the 2nd green complex, definitely more could be done to the course and the flatness in some places does detract. The 18th used to be better as the tee was nearer the road, but with safety it got shunted over. That 15th green has been softened in the front and the old picture of 9 which is now 13 I think has had all the 'mac' bits taken out, its a shame they have taken the 'mac' bits away from the bunkers too. I am not sure exactly what he did at the time I dont think he did every green, but I do recall the 7th green was his. I think 5 and 6 are new. Overall its quite a solid course though and I think it suffers in peoples mind because of the eye candy factor.Only one person has ever mentioned to me that the 15th was based on the road hole... shows how much people take notice and how much the 'normal' golfer cares.Nice pics Sean.
