The Blue is probably my least favourite of the 3 courses at Frilford Heath, I guess because it's more like anything you'll find at a lot of other courses. It does have some holes that I really like though. There's a tough start requiring a mixture or length, accuracy and shot shaping to avoid water, out of bounds and trees. The par 3's offer a good mixture and are very exacting in their requirements. There's no doubting the quality of the playing surfaces as that can be said of any courses at Frilford but for me playing the blue means longing looks towards the gorse of the Red or the sliver birch of the Green which is where I'd rather be.
