Played wallasey in july 08 and remember the course being baked hard even though the summer had been pretty wet. This is proper links course with some big dunes and deep pot bunkers. I found it to be far more interesting and exciting than it's more illustrious neighbour at Hoylake, holes 4 and 11 in particular are spectacular and will live with you for a long time. Both would make it into my favourite 18 holes i've ever played. Other highlights include 2,3,8,12,15 and 17. All in all, it has a few too many average moments to be rated among the very best, but i'm suprised it's so low in the rankings.
