Great set-up and 2 courses

The old course is renowned as one of the best courses in Bedfordshire, and probably the first place Nick Faldo won an open competition (as a junior in 1973). The Carthagena course was built in the mid 70?s, and has come along nicely, and has better drainage. Both are a good challenge in their own right.

We played the Old Course, which is well laid out and a delight to play now that everything is back in play following various limitations during the Covid19 problems of 2020 and early 2021.

Bunkers were also fully back in play. I only visited one, greenside and one fairway bunker during my round and they played and looked immaculate, all being freshly raked by the greenkeepers and the players in front of us.

This round was in their Seniors Pairs Open, and therefore played from the back tees, where the WHS course rating is 133. The longer par 4?s are hard to reach in 2 for us older guys, and that certainly showed.

Greens were quite quick (although probably not quite as quick as the putting green), and very true, with the ball going exactly where you sent it, and following some fairly heavy recent rain, they were particularly receptive.
.
The course has many very mature trees, and there has been a concerted effort during the lockdowns to pollard a number of the older ones, and also remove the few dead ones that were still in place at the end of Summer 2020.

Food was included with this competition, so I can't comment on food or prices, but I have eaten here before, and remember it as always being of a very good standard. The bar is well organised, and whilst there is still an element of Covid19 controls in place, it was not cumbersome, and there was certainly no rigid enforcement of mask rules etc.

All in all an enjoyable day, and I would certainly recommend, and I will be back as soon as possible, as I always enjoy playing here.

Great Course

Course is in excellent condition and a test for all golfing abilities.
Greens are true and quick. Leaves have largely been cleared so not a chore to find your ball.

Definitely worth a visit.

Because of the heat it was a bit yellow. Would love to play again once we've had some rain.
