It was such a pleasure to play a course in such fine condition, given the recent excellent weather we were presented with a a real links challenge. This was offered up by a course that ranks among the best we have played, including multiple championship courses on both sides of the Atlantic.

"Please pass on my thanks to all the members of staff and officials of SAOL GC for the great day that you gave us last Thursday 25th May. I personally have played in the Kilgrimol Trophy quite a few times now, and I was very pleased to share the experience of your course and club with many of our members who were on my Captains Tour. All came away appreciating the architecture and presentation of the layout and will no doubt be back for another taste."

The catering team were exemplary throughout the day, the Course Manager and his greenstaff prepared the course in excellent condition for the time of year, the Pro Shop staff were enthusiastic and supportive, and last but not least, thanks to the Office Staff for your help, your welcoming attitude and correspondence throughout."

“Played in the Spring Mixed Open on Sunday and would like to say how superb the greens were. They are always good here and it was especially pleasing to see them so good early in the season and with the less than favourable weather we have experienced lately. I played recently at St Andrews on the Old, the New and the Jubilee and neither could match your greens. We look forward to our next visit in the summer mixed.”

"Firstly, I’d just like to congratulate you on a great event last Sunday, it is the first time I’ve played in the Old Links Trophy but certainly won’t be the last. The course was in fantastic condition with the greens as good as anything I’ve played on for some time and the competition was superbly run by the club."

"Please can you pass on our thanks to the golf clubs who hosted the Rainford Trophy, especially St Annes Old Links, which was in superb condition and the greens were some of the best we have ever played on."

“On behalf of the Inter Collegiate Tour staff, the participating colleges and players, please accept this as a huge ‘Thank you’ for all that you did to make the national finals of the Intercollegiate Tour a resounding success. Feedback from all quarters has been very positive and I can honestly say that in the years we have run the event, no club has been more helpful and welcoming.”
