S&A is a very nice course, no.3 in a town full of great golf. Not as good as Birkdale or Hillside, but still very good, would have it just behind West Lancs in my rankings. Not too many blind shots, as another review suggests, but the 6th and 18th tee shots are a bit of a lottery for a first timer. The 16th is the most famous hole but for me, best hole is the 5th, a difficult par 4 played between two dunes to a pretty green framed by pine trees.Would definitely go back, it's pretty good value for money.
