This can't be a properly good course, yet. The Mysterious Bogey Voter hasn't visited!

I very much enjoyed Margaret's Bay, not least for the convincing storyline behind the course. All the best fictional courses for me should have some good made-up history behind them.

I still feel it is a bit over-bunkered, though. So I gave it an Eagle.

Great course Smile An eagle, because its a bit harsh for anything above pro skill level, especially with mod conditions.

I voted a low ace. This is a very believable course and one of the better fictional links-style courses we have been treated to recently. The layout uses the elevation change and the cliffline effectively, i.e. not to an unrealistic extreme. The greens are challenging, but I did not encounter anything I would consider to be unfair. On the down side, to echo a couple of earlier comments, the bunkers looked OK but not ace-caliber. Maybe it's just my eyes, but most of them seemed the same shape too. Geek Also, I thought the difficulty was set a little too high (I played this course champ click, M(ch)-M(ch)-W, random pins). In my case, this was mainly due to the rough: it is placed quite close to the fairway, and it usually leaves no option but to chip out with a sand wedge and try to save par from the fairway. Overall, this is an excellent course, one that I will certainly play again. Thanks to the designer for the time and effort in building this course. Clap

An Ace, the course really beat me up on the first round but I will do better next time.

A great job and I agree about the views of the other holes.

how can Margaret's Bay 2011 not be considered an ACE if only for delivering creativity in some of it's graphic design?

what other LINKS2003 course features a hole w/ Crop Circles onnit for gawds sakes Stuck Tongue

There is no apter word for this wonderful downland/clifftop course than _exhilarating_. The herring-gulls, breakers, farmland scarecrow, and crop circles beautifully set the Sussex rural scene, as the golfer snakes his way between tough bunkering and wildly varying elevations, with some blindly taxing uphill shots to "make his day". Margaret's Bay has become one of my favourite courses, and naturally also garnered the easiest of Aces.
