    I had the pleasure of playing 5 rounds over a 2week period in June 1997 and was thoroughly impressed with the course, the weather(generally pleasant), the views inland of the Lake District mountains and the Isle of Man out to sea. Figure out the bounces, the OB, the wind and the 'flying fall-out' (seagulls) and this place is a blast.

    A very very tough test of links golf which, if played in any kind of wind, is a monster. As with most of the great links courses, the golfer must realise that the yardage chart can go straight out of the driver's side-window on his journey to the course as the distances prescribed will often bear no relation to the test that the golfer is faced with. A typical example would be a recent September round I played at Seascale.
    The third, an excellent 430 yard par 4 around the OOB dogleg was a mere three wood and an 8 iron which finished 20 yards beyond the green. Turning back into the wind at the 320 yard fourth however required a full blooded driver and a 2 iron and I still failed to get up in two. The best holes besides the previously mentioned third are the 8th, an excellent dropping par 3 and the mighty sixteenth at 470 yards.
    The key to the course is to make the most of the holes which are played downwind and to hold on for dear life at the others. There are birdie opportunities, most notably at the 1st, 5th or 6th depending on the wind and the 15th. All in all a great course, which if it were not so isolated (for anyone else but the locals, the Lake District's A roads are C or D category) would have held more of the top Amateur competitions.
