The Old Course is a nice layout. Headfort is a great place to play. The fairways were a little long today and they dressed the greens with sand so they were running very slow.

Played here at the start of December. It had been raining a lot so was fearing the worst when I saw how high the water level was in the river which runs through the course. However, apart from a few extended water hazards from where the river had gone above its normal bank the course was amazingly dry and in very good condition. The only downside was that while the greens were running true they were incredibly slow. I know you need to leave some grass on for protection over the winter, but they were some of the slowest greens I've ever played on. I would hope in the summer time they would improve. But for the price we paid and to get a slot free on a Saturday morning, I was very impressed overall.
