I played Le Mer in 2013 and was impressed. My recent visit endorsed that view. The first few holes play well enough but it is after you tee off 8 and view your approach shot to the elevated green that the pulse starts racing, and this increases further on 9 and 10 and then you stand on the 11th tee....stunning. The back nine presents a great test and a breath-taking finish as you climb to the 17th green and then again to the 18th tee. Having to take a drink in Le Manoir was no hardship but when the club-house facilities are finished it will be a top class venue.
