Cardrona is clearly a new developing course and it will surely improve as time goes by. I actually enjoyed the whole experience and it’s important when you need to pick a golf venue which caters for the non-golfing partner too (as I do). Played here in June and I was most impressed with the quality and speed of the greens. The course opens up strongly with a great collection of holes…I really liked the dogleg 7th over the lake. THowever, the par threes could do with spicing up somehow. Nevertheless as an overall package it was great value – if your budget will stretch to it, take a buggy if you can, there are some lengthy walks between greens and tees. You can play here on a package with a spot of breakfast and a light lunch for about £30. Decent value in my view.
