First off, I have to confess that I am a links lover, followed by heathland and then parkland etc. But I think Downfield is a cracking golf course which can hold its head high amongst the very best. It's a complete surprise to find a wonderful heavily wooded golf course alongside a fairly uninspiring housing estate. Once you are in the ground of the club, you really could be miles from anywhere. As previously mentioned, this is a BIG course with lots of variation and numerous long sweeping doglegs. It's not well known, but it should be, it's a challenging course and well worth playing...11th hole is one of the best inland holes I have played.
