Thanks for leaving a comment Birdie Eagles. I thought you might like to see this info from the courses website, no wonder it looks desolate. '1914 saw the foreshore and links become a coastal defence and training area with barbed wire entanglements and anti-aircraft batteries. P M Lucas kept the greens cut throughout the war and the billeting of members of the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders in the clubhouse no doubt contributed to sympathetic treatment of the course. It was they who gave Percys son his nickname of Laddie. The course was quickly restored and hosted the 1922 Ladies Open, won by Joyce Wethered. The club thrived during the 30s and 40s. It was a regular venue for the Parliamentary Golf Society and Inter Varsity golf matches, with Henry Longhurst making his first appearance for the Cambridge side in 1928. The Prince of Wales became Club President in 1930, and two years later the club staged the Open Championship, Princes hosting of the Championship was rated a great success, but before it could stage the event again, the country was once more at war. The links and club premises were soon requisitioned by the military, this time as a battle training ground and the course was all but obliterated. Its use for target practice was likened by Lord Brabazon to throwing darts at a Rembrandt. The Royal Marines considered retaining the course as a permanent rifle range but it was finally derequisitioned in 1949 and Australian property developer Sir Aynsley Bridgland came to the rescue.'

Beautifully done, Jimbo. Neil said it was daunting to look at - one glance in the background & I couldn't help thinking of Chernobyl, so you wouldn't get much more desolate than that! I checked the bushes & long grass on each hole, but no sign of mutants - might have to give 'em time to evolve? :)

really nice job on this one Jimbo....can't stray too far off target without getting into trouble..i like how you treated the bunkers and fairways, subtle but they really have a big impact on the course. I liked the greens, #4 was a little too tough on VD...at least with the pin I had.

I saw a grass path that wound through some of the holes....i think some more of those connecting even just the tee boxes really would have helped to tie things together... All together it's a real Peach....thanks for the hard work on this...it looks and plays like a champ!

Jimbo, I for one am very glad your 'rest' is over.. lol. I have got to agree with Putt, this course is a real beauty, head of the class knock e'm dead effort. The feel of this course is simply the best of links golf, stately and ancient. I love it and I am sure Mr. Sarazen would agree. Outstanding Jimbo.

Great course Jimbo.,one of the best,if not the best,courses you have ever posted here. Loved the deep rough texture. A five star course.

Excellent design.
Must hit the short grass.
Prefer the back nine, hole 13 especially. A dog leg which is unusual for a links layout.
Lack of bunkers is a surprise also.
Enjoyed the walk.

As far as links courses go you've got the look spot on. Rough, desolate and daunting to look at. Vary good indeed.

Bravo!! Such a realistic links feel and plays tough as nails. I hope that someday we'll see Portrush and an updated version of Royal Liverpool added to the rota.
