The Blue's a good course but not as good as the Red. The opening hole is an absloute brute of a par three. Not the easiest opener after lunch and a couple of beers. The Blue has a more open feel to it and it's certainly more forgiving than the Red. There are a number of holes on top of the busy road and these detract from the overall enjoyment...shame really. In my view, the Berkshire comes up just short of Wentworth's original 36-hole combination (East & West). Anyway, it's certainly worth playing as a 36-hole package. But if you can, play the Blue first and leave the superior Red until last.
