Played Hillside and S&A on the same day 3rd August - 2 Excellent courses! The front nine on Hillside is great, nice links golf course, not much scenery other than trains, bunkers, greens etc - but an incredibly enjoyable 9 holes....after a quick cuppa at the halfway house you are then transported into a surreal wonderland of golf on the back nine!!
It was very reminiscent of Trump International (best course I have played) whereby every hole could be a postcard, and every shot is not only a challenge, but an enjoyable experience. I found the rough slightly too penal at times as literally 10 yards off the fairway it turns into thick bush like rough which is nigh on impossible to find your ball in! The back nice about the 12th is an unbelievable hole, shame I cocked it up!!!
All in all, it is worth the green fee for the backside itself, but overall it is a top notch golf course and probably deserves to be higher up in the rankings!
