Great condition, tight and challenging

This is a tough golf course - you need to be very straight off the tee and solid with your putting to score well. Despite the greens having been hollow tined and scarified a couple of weeks earlier they were still firm and fast. The front nine is downland and the back is more parkland. All par 5s are reachable with two good shots and there are a good few risk-reward holes.

1st time visit

Long wait to start, slow on way round, didn't help, but otherwise good conditions. 90 yards away in two on the tenth.

Some of the best greens around

Royal Winchester is a traditional club that gave us a very friendly welcome as visitors. It is laid out on top of a couple of hills and so is very exposed. We had very strong winds when we played making it play very tough when combined with the rock hard fairways. On most holes, there is deep rough, often marked as OB, to the side of each fairway. You do need to find the fairways to score well but they are fairly generous. The condition of the course is amazing. The tees, bunkers and greens are immaculate, the greens being the smoothest and quickest I have played in a long time. The bunkers are all small pot bunkers, revitted with astroturf which makes them penal but very tidy. It almost plays like a links course. Well worth a visit if you can.

The course was in good condition. Even though it was heavy rain the greens were still quick and only 3 had standing water on and these were only small puddles.
