David, thanks for all the hard work. As I have said before i think the Netherlands is a great destination and I am sure it will be a lot of fun. Please pencil me in at this stage - will need to take a harder look at the diary in the new year. Philip
In terms of extra golf there is more than plenty of excellent courses to play it just depends on how long you guys decide to stay. In NL and Belgium there is well over 2 weeks worth of great or very good courses. If we just address the classic courses we have:NoordwijkRoyal HagueKennemerDe PanEindhovenHilversumRosendaelscheToxandria The Belgium courses are a couple hours drive. The top 5 mentioned there are great courses and I'd wager there will not be one of you that wouldn't agree they are among the best the've played. No coincidence that Harry S. Colt was the architect of 4 out of 5 of those.
Looks like we are doing pretty well on this side. With current interest shown, we have enough Americans to take on a team from the other side of the Atlantic.US & CanadaMichael WhitakerHart HuffinesCraig DisherBill BrightlyChris ShaidaWard PeyronninBill McBrideJoe BuehlerJohn MayhughGB&I + ROWDavid DavisUlrich MayringMark PearceDonal O CeallaighAdam LawrenceTony MuldoonMark ChaplinJames BoonPhilip Gawith
BTW...I feel a bit like the fat kid who gets picked last for the dodgeball team. Oh, well. I'm from Oregon and we can't really consider that USA I guess can we? The golf there is far more European/UK/Irish. I agree!

I agree!i didn't know you were from Oregon and, more importantly, my listing of players shouldn't be construed as assigning teams. I was only trying to illustrate that the US wasn't lagging behind in signups. You could make an argument for playing on either side.
It doesn't seem to have been mentioned yet but these dates mean that the BUDA match would finish the day before the start of the Open Championship. An opportunity to play BUDA then watch a round or two of the greatest championship in golf at the best course in the UK?
