Superb

VRA is a superb course, always in great condition & a fair test of golf.
The greens are superb, fast & true, bunkers good & the rough testing without being extreme.
You always get a great welcome from Ben & the team of pro's.
Look out for the challenging 7th, interesting 12th & the long sweeping 18th.
A must play course if you're in the area.

Good day in the sun

Course was in very good condition even with the sweltering sun we had. Greens were in top condition and at a good pace.

Greens were in very good condition but a couple of holes still feeling the brunt of last summer on the fairways, understandable.

Outstanding

After a full days rain the day before, the course was in outstanding condition.
Easily the best greens I've played on this year.
It's a great layout, with superb views of the Abbey & 'must play' if you're in the area.

Vale Royal is a lovely track, and will get better with time given it still needs time to establish and mature. Stands up well to rain with good drainage. It doesn’t come close to the quality on offer at nearby Sandiway or Delamere; but those 2 aside, it’s as good as any other course in Cheshire
