A pretty inland heathland course which I played in winds the likes of which I have only previously experienced on a coastal links. The course conditioning was excellent in September. Despite the flat land, the course offers a strong challenge with doglegs and dead ground aplenty and abundant heather. Unlike at other heathland courses finding your ball should not be too difficult, but not expecting too much of a shot played from the heather is best. From the 8th onwards the holes are excellent, with a particularly strong finishing stretch.
