Thanks Sean - looks very nice.Looking at the scorecard on the website there is no separate tee / par for ladies and men. The par on the scorecard assumes you are female with the par set accordingly. It would seem the obvious solution for men to just change the par of the 3 400-450 yard par 5s to par 4s. You then have what looks like a very enjoyable 5400 yard par 68 course.
Nice tour. The chilly air made it like playing a Cayman ball. Even with several tees significantly forward, it played a lot more than it's card length. Several good drives failed to clear 200 and it took two absolute belters including a running 5w to get me to the back of the 8th green. However I liked it a lot and look forward to playing in summer when the ball rolling out will bring that heather into play.Objectively(sic) it's not top 100 material but it has more charm than about 1/2 those that 'are'. The ideal refresher after a long hard winter or even in the middle of a tough golf trip. Recommended, as long as you know what you are getting you wont be in the least disappointed.PS Julie was most friendly and helpful in setting up the trip but sadly was in Ireland with her Mum last weekend when we visited. And Jeff she was asking after you ...is there sometihing we should know?
Iím heading down to play Formby at the end of next month and Iím looking to fit in an afternoon round after my morning game.Iíve narrowed my choice down to between Formby Ladies and West Lancs, neither of which I have played before. Formby Ladies seems to be well thought of on this thread and there are a few people on here who are fans of West Lancs (based on comments on Duncanís thread on that course) although otherwise itís rarely mentioned on the board.For those that know the courses, would it be worthwhile prioritising one over the other while Iím in the area?
DavidDid you ever make it Formby Ladies? If so, what did you think?
