Bridport Golf Club, Bridport, TAS, Australia -- to play here, you're likely skipping a round at a world top-100. It's interesting, but not THAT interesting! (and yes, I played it and skipped a round at Barney Dunes to do so)
Has anyone played Manistee Golf and Country Club in Michigan? On the bluffs overlooking Lake Michigan.
Great photo. Golf as it should be - I wonder if they argue over green and lush versus firm and fast and brown!!! No I haven't played Westray but a mate from many years ago came from Orkney and mentioned it to me.Here's another - Sola GC - actually Sola Golfklubb - SW of Stavanger in Norway, close to the airport - http://www.solagk.no/1045407/Here it is - http://binged.it/1sjLJtzI haven't played it either and the only reason I know of it is because a mate played there. I do though recall being in that area in the mid-1980's and seeing some nice duneland, which I guess is the duneland you can see on the satmap, just to the west of the course, the airport would I imagine have been smaller then, and thinking to myself, "that could be a location for a golf course".atb
Achill Golf Club.A 9 hole Irish links course in Mayo on Achill Island, further west than Mulranny... It's not as good as Mulranny but it runs along a huge beach and has the odd thing going on.I suspect Peper & Campbell missed this one. They missed Spanish Point as well I think. And maybe Rush.http://www.achillgolf.com/http://www.spanishpointgolfing.com/http://www.rushgolfclub.com/None of these are in the same league as Corballis... But that has been mentioned once or twice...

Given how his other course drains (Laurelwood) I'm waiting til a bit more of a dry period. If the drainage is better let me know, I'll make the trip from Eugene sooner.

All of them were worth the stop.Also, I played yesterday at Burning Tree outside D.C., which was not at all what I expected it to be ... much better, instead. I doubt they are looking for a GCA photo tour, but I was surprised how low-key the place was, considering all the powerful people who might be there on a given day.
