Panellists’ Comments: “A really friendly club – everyone from the members to the starter goes out of their way to welcome you”; “One of the hardest first holes in the Top 100. Take bogey and move on!”; “Changes to the 2nd have made it an absolutely superb par 5”; “Perhaps the most unsung of the Lancashire links but it should be on your ‘must play’ list if you are thinking of a trip to the area.”
