Holding up well in wet weather

Past few days have been very wet.20% bunkers full of water. Greens very good considering. 11th and 14th holes large ponds in fairway.

Great

My local course which has had a bit of a makeover during the pandemic. The long straight fairways have been shaped (just by cutting the grass) which makes the course look far more impressive than ever.

Excellent public course with wide well kept fairways and fabulous greens. excellent driving range too. Only downside is the booking system which has to be done through "Everyone Active" and is a little tricky to negotiate at first.

tough conditions

A bit muddy after the recent rain and so not a lot of carry.
Greens quick but a bit bumpy in places.
Great value for Seniors, and not bad for me either.

Pay and play great course

Although short it?s a good track with a mix of length and risk and reward. Good mix/high handicap course. Excellent pace of play means rounds are usually 3-3.5 hrs

Generally in very good nick apart from a bit bare on some of the fairways. Greens very good. Interesting course with good balance of challenge and fairness.
Particularly good value for seniors.
