Remember playing Waterville many years ago and I was charged the 'yank' rate initially, got a refund before teeing off. Was fortunate to play Ballybunion, Lahinch, Belmullet, Portrush, RCD, Baltray and Portrush remains my all time favourite. I love Murvagh and Greenore also. I couldn't afford to play most of those courses now.

A lot of these so called great courses are out of reach to ordinary golfers at Ä120 plus and more for RCD to play.

Usually if you are a GUI member they are cheaper. I think a lot of them (not all) bump the prices as tourist golfers (mainly American) associate high prices with quality and if the course was Ä50 to play they simply wouldn't play it. However they then have a different price for GUI members.

Most of the Top Links courses donít offer a GUI rate and youíll get charged full whack. Some have opens (getting less and more expensive no the good times are back), an open week or scratch cup at a discounted rate but they are not too often.

Ruddy is quite good with European and youíll usually get out at the open rate (50 euro) if you are gui member. The Island, Portmarnock, Lahinch, RCD & Portrush will definitely tell you to fcuk off.... Canít remember the first 3 having any sort of menís open in the last 3 years (the island always seems to have womens opens).

Who are we all picking?

I like Fowler 16/1 and have a bit of love for Tommy Fleetwood 18/1.  Also have a small wager on Noren 25/1 and JT 20/1.

Think Tiger might struggle. What about RORS? Could he putt it into a bucket at this stage?
