I was a visitor at Mar Hall yesterday, playing it for the first time and I must say I was very impressed with what I found.As a 3 handicapper I found this an excellent test. Although not the longest course accuracy is crucial with the way the course has been laid out with well positioned bunkers and existing mature trees which must be negotiated. Having said this there are still a few long par 4's with demanding second shots.The greens are excellent, large and undulating and for such a new course they ae in fantastic condition. They are among the truest I have played on anywhere in Scotland this year and I imagine they will be even better next summer when they get faster. All in all I was very impressed with this new course and look forward to playing it again.
