I was very impressed with the whole Delamere Forest experience from the pro's welcome to the beer in the bar afterwards. The course is just magnificent although the back 9 captivated me more than the front 9, but don't get me wrong all 18 are a class act. If you miss a putt on these greens it's down to your reading and putting as I think they are the truest greens I have putted on for a long time. Wayward shots can be punished heavily at this time of year with the knee high rough and particularly on the front 9 some really good shots can be penalised by an undulating fairway bounce, but I'm guessing its a lot of money to get a members bounce here!!! 2nd in Cheshire and deservedly so . Well worth a visit, in fact it's a must visit. I am not one for revisiting courses but I hope I get chance to come back here.
