For a links course that has such notable changes in elevation there are many holes that seem very similar and play the same way. Holes 1, 18 and 5-10 are all located on less spectacular land but seemingly every other hole offers a slope of one kind or another that few links courses can match or better. The flat 18th coming back to the clubhouse still has plenty of character with out of bounds present down the entire left hand side and a charming final green complex. The greens were of a good medium pace and true in their roll. The etiquette on display was the best I have experienced anywhere with locals and tourists alike all playing with a smile on their face and with consideration for others, with faster groups being called through immediately. A joy to play, although it may not be everyone’s cup of tea.
