Good course for this time of year
This is the third time I have played this course. Each occasion I have really enjoyed it. For the time of year, the greens were in very good condition, especially as it had been raining heavy. Definitely will play again.
Negative aspect was the bacon sandwich afterwards, in the hotel, which was terrible.!!!

Great course - play in summer
Excellent course - only ever played this time of year. Need to go back and play it in the summer. Tough course in winter where scoring is more difficult. there is no roll and preferred lies. Would recommend
