    The forums best holes

    No hard feelings Nick! :) Agree Broadstone is on a great piece of land and its the sort of course that could reach top 50 in UK in next 5 or so years if they make the right changes etc, they seem to be moving in the right direction which is good. I don't think Ferndown or Parkstone have the...
