Synopsis

The last chapter contains is entitled "Links of Distinction." In it, the author relates the eighteen best seaside, inland and seaside-inland holes as chosen by an aspiring, international player. The author then provides his list.

Mr Simpson articulates his view and it's no surprise Blackmoor, Woking, New Zealand, Liphook and West Sussex appear heavily. Simpson's choices for links holes? Unsurprisingly, they're entirely taken from Hoylake and St Andrews.
