Granville is a links style course with revetted bunkering and although on the coast has it has no views of the coast. The fairways were in a unexpectedly poor condition when we visited, giving very uneven lies. The 9th hole has trees that have been planted along the entire right side of the fairway to hide the practice ground which look out of place with the rest of the course. There were apparently plans to move the practice ground and remove the trees but this has not happened. 16 is considered the 'signature' hole. A par 3 with elevated green, fully exposed to the elements. 2 and 10 are also excellent par 3 holes. This is fundamentally a good course to play with many excellent holes. I hope they fix the fairways and let the rough grow a little. The club house has a super restaurant which is worth a visit for an evening meal.
