Well, there's not much else that needs to be said. I've played a lot of courses and The Downs is in that elite upper echelon. If you appreciate good architecture you simply must have a game there. MacKenzie and Maxwell were granted a wonderful canvas upon which to craft a layout. The front nine gets more praise but the back nine is subtly good. Pay attention to the details as you play the course. And one more thing, stay below the pin.
