Best condition I have seen the couse since it opened about 8 years ago. The greens considering the amount of winter play they get are exceptional

I find the course really interesting and playable. Not the longest by any stretch but certainly a challenge for a golfer of my limited availability. The course was chosen for its excellent condition, despite the weather and time of year and it never disappoints on that front.
