Caldwell starts with an undistinguished par 4 (check out the webcam, by the way) but the next stretch offers four excellent holes. At 2, 3 and 4 a burn runs the full length of the hole on the left side of the fairway (bad news for those, like myself, whose shots tend to go left). The par 3rd is a delightful hole. At the 5th, by way of a change, the burn riuns down the right side. The middle section of the course does not reach the standards of early holes but there is a fine downhiller at the 9th. The highlights on the back nine start with the par three 16th over water followed by a lovely par five with a burn and majestic tall trees all down on the left. The closing hole provides an attractive shot down to the green nestling next to the pretty clubhouse. Caldwell is not well-known but you will not regret time spend here.
