The Red is definately the better of the two courses, which are tough to spilt after the first visit. The Red is tighter and more intimate, with each hole shielded from the next by the magnificent trees. Many people claim that the Red and the Blue make up the finest 36-hole heathland combination in the world - for me, the Old & New at Sunningdale is a far better bet. However, the combination of 6 3s, 4s, & 5s is entertaiment but it's the outstanding par 3s which will stick in the mind. If you only have time for one round - make sure you play the Red rather than the Blue. Wonderful course but it needs to be played more than once. After first time of playing (36 holes) couldn't tell the Red from the Blue. Nevertheless a classic.
