Sean -

Thanks for the great tour that brings back happy memories of my round at Seascale in 2003.  Based on Donald Steel's book, I decided to play there and was quite glad I did.  In fact just last week I told Ran that I was surprised that Seascale (along with Stonehaven in Scotland) was not featured in the Confidential Guide to me.  The fact that none of the four authors had been there shows the depth of courses in GB&I.

It didn't occur to me that Seascale wasn't included in the CF.  With Doak mellowing on the little guys, perhaps there should be a place for Seascale.

Tucky's link to this tour on the Holes Playing to Corners...thread had me take another look at Seascale.  I see Doak didn't visit for his CG update, that is a harsh omission. I wonder too if I haven't been too hard on Seascale after looking at the pix.  It falls well short of my top 100 best GB&I courses, but now I am thinking....maybe it is time for another visit.

I'd be more than happy to join you. As I've confessed before I'm embarrassed to say I never played it when I lived down there.

Looks like there's some interesting stuff at Seascale. A nice looking sandy dune area not far to the south at Ravenglass as well.....shame no course there though.
By UK standards a long way off the usual beaten track through - https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.4045418,-3.4904788,1743m/data=!3m1!1e3

Sean, I'd also be interested in a trip to Seascale.  I missed it when the pre-BUDA crowd went there.
In June I will be riding the first three stages of this year's Tour de France route for charity.  630km (394 miles) in three days, with 7800m (25,600 feet) of climbing for the William Wates Memorial Trust (https://rideleloop.org/the-charity/) which supports underprivileged young people.
