Good

Decent track but I havenโ€™t been really impressed. I have to admit that I played there right after four unforgettable rounds at Royal Dornoch and Castle Stuart the two prior days .... Itโ€™s a bit like having a lunch at a 3* Michelin restaurant followed by a dinner in your local bistro. It doesnโ€™t mean thatโ€™s not good, but itโ€™s just not the same world !

Fabulous

Playing at North Berwick earlier this year has been such an amazing day !! It started with a walk down the streets of Edinburgh with my bag on the back and a train ride. The adventure was already great even before my first shot. All people at the club really made me feel very welcome, thumb up to all of them ! The West Links is a really really great track !! A lot of nice holes, some pretty quirky on the back nine, but I really loved all of them. Holes #13-16 stretch is one of the most memorable I ever played. Cherry on the cake, I played very well that day, including 3 birdies ! I can't recommend highly enough !!

Stephen VincentWhat do you mean quirky? I thought hundreds of years old stone walls in the middle of fairways was quite normal!What a place!
Avatar of golfer named Stephane Castella
Stephane Castella@Stephen Vincent Hundreds of years old stone walls in the middle of fairways might not be so original, but what about using it as a green defence like on Pit ? Same about the amazing green shape on #16 or the massive dune guarding the green on #14

Stephane Castella(while this last feature can be found elsewhere like in Lahinch (#4 & 5) or in Prestwick (#17)). IMO, it's not exactly what I would call a usual or standard design. But I don't mean anything negative while using quirky.

Stephane CastellaMaybe a misuse of that word since english is not my mother tongue ?
Avatar of golfer named Stephen Vincent
Stephen VincentSorry Stephane, I couldnโ€™t agree more with you, North Berwick is amazingly quirky. It is the ideal use of the word! Sorry I was trying to be funny. Your description was perfect.

Stephane Castella@Stephen Vincent Sorry for not having understand your attempt ๐Ÿ˜‰ At least we do agree about what we think about North Berwick ๐Ÿ˜€

Patrick RahmeWow thatโ€™s an achievement! Not sure if I broke it or not... I donโ€™t keep track of all my rounds... but I donโ€™t think Iโ€™m close to that number ๐Ÿ˜…

Stephane Castella@Patrick Rahme Are you talking about the number of rounds or countries ? Or maybe both? ๐Ÿ˜‰
