Every once in a while, it seems like I'm riding the bogey train.

Since it hasn't been said, nice 5 year bump on this thread, GMc!

Yes I have ridden the train for a round. In Paris, took the RER to Sevran to play the Parc forestier de la Poudrerie course. Very cheap ride, even from central Paris and only took 30-45 minutes. Course wasn't too good, but my first outside the US.
Pull up the course page for more detailed directions.

It looks like you could get to Lloyd Park in London by train fairly easily. I succumbed to the jet lag and wasn't able to bag that one.

Longford Park in Manchester, UK is also easily accessible via train.

Im hoping to come to the U.K. next summer, and we are considering wether to do the north of England and Scotland or south of England into Wales. If I can only do one course in Northern England is Longford the best?

Longford is the only course I've played in England, but it's pretty fun. It would probably be a 3.5 here stateside.

In this day and age I would imagine that if one was inclined to take a train somewhere as opposed to flying or just driving themselves you could call Uber or Lyft for a ride to and from the course of your destination. I assume any decent sized town or city should have one or both available for use.

Yes.

That was simple The club are also in the process of creating Lifford Park nearby which with the main guys driving it is likely to be very good too.

If you're doing South of England/Wales get in contact with me before you come, I'd love to get out and show you around.

New course in West Wales, Felingeri, is going to be right up there, definitely 12 holes open, not sure if the 18 will be in by then.

Cotswold View and Quarry Park at the North edge of the Cotswolds are two of if not the best courses in the country. By next Summer I'm hoping to have another open in between the two which will be right up in the top course mix too. Lots of other really good courses in the area too with Bedworth/Ackers/Belfry all nearby and lots more opening soon.

As for Trains our top course bagger LathamA over here doesn't drive and has got to all of the courses via public transport.

Last summer I took the AMTRAK Northeast Regional to DC, hopped on the Metro Green Line one morning to College Park MD then walk the rest of the way to Calvert Road Park. I got some interesting looks on the Metro sitting there with my one disc in hand. It was kinda cool bagging a course and a state using public transportation.

Many times from Penn Station and Grand Central in NYC to Leonard Park, Rutgers, Veterans, Canbury, Tyler State Park, Hartford (Wickham) and others. Uber is everywhere now so pretty easy once you get to the station.

When I was in NYC once, I took the train to Rutgers to play that course that I had seen my man Cubby play online. I knew my wife would be asleep until noon, and if I got up early enough I could make it to the course by about 8:30, play a round and get back. If you count the subway, I actually took multiple trains. Subway to Penn Station, and the passenger train to Rutgers.
