Dunhill Links-St. Andrews, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns
I love this camera they have on skyHD that shows ball flights, etc. at 7000 frames per second. Especially in high definition!
Now, as I've played all three of these courses, I honestly can't say which one I prefer over the others, because they should all be on your to play list! My brother and I played them all 5 years ago on three consecutive days and it was the most fun I've ever had in my life. Plus the two rounds at Gleneagles.
That said, nothing and I mean nothing can replace the experience of playing The Old Course.

I was speaking to some playing partners about this & when they played them they preffered the new course over the old. They reckon apart from the 1st, 17th & 18th it's not that 'special'??. Can't comment myself as I've not played there yet but am hoping the missus will treat me to it for my 40th (she's got 4 years to save!!)

Anyone who tells you that the New Course is better than the Old, well forget it. The Old Course is not as hard as the New but they are very similar, one with tons of history and the other with none. I played all the other 5 courses twice each this past June so at least my memory is recent. There is still nothing like The Old Course.
The Eden Course is beautiful and overlooked by many, the Jubilee is the hardest one of all the Links at St. Andrew's.
But the Old Course sends shivers up your spine every time.

You're telling me. You wouldn't believe we were born in the same year. I know, I know, I only look 28, but I am as old as John.

Who told you that you look 28, the same person who said you should play off 18
At least I can boast a full head of hair (a few grey one's I know but it's all still there) & a waistline under 40'
I think I look good for my age considering I've been married 13 years this December & got 2 kids!!

Still at 34 myself at age 55. Of course the hair is going fast but none of the gray ones are leaving.

Like my age, my waist is under 40 (just). My dad's side went bald by 40 and my mum's side grey by 40. Either way I was screwed. Turns out I inherited both and am going bald AND grey! At least I'm not as vain as the Bro-in-law who dyes his hair aged 29 because he is 50% grey!
And when you have a 16 year old boy and a 14 year old girl, keeping things like non-grey, non-balding hair, a reasonable waistline and and stress levels below heart attack level are virtually impossible. Given that vanity is not something I suffer with (accept you're fat, buy bigger trousers is my mantra), I'll work on keeping the stress levels down.

Is that 'Karma' or 'Calmer' Wayne?
The army forms are already filled in. Now all I need is to get them to accept the little buggers......
