Firstly the 12th is not like the 16th, they require totally different shots.
Niall on 12, I hit 3r, bounced through the green
16, I hit 5i bounced through the green.
Wind assisting both times, the run ups didn’t’ look on to me. On the day “similar”.
I came to Siloth from Lytham. It put a smile back on my face. In short found it a delight but ain't no Dornoch, Lahinch, RSG (add your own) is it?
Maybe there's lots more to see on repeat visits but I didn't see it I liked the greens (loved 6 - I'll look for a picture- IMO the standout par 3) but they’re not up there with TOC or Deal.
I bumped into Sean coming off 9 and my off the cuff comment straight away was about the similar mid length holes and how it felt short. I then teed it up and came up just shy of the shallow swale in front of the green on 10 into the wind.
Unlike Sean, I rather like the 17 especially with the front pin position. There was space behind our group, so a couple of us dropped extra balls and tried to chip down the back of the bunker and up on the green. Never got close but it was a lot of Fun trying.
If you’re looking for hyper critical I thought there were a couple of strange walks between holes in what (From memory 9-10 and 16-17) is otherwise a lovely compact course. An easy walk and overall this is an ideal BUDA venue and well worth the windscreen time. I’d love another crack at it
