Played full 27, 1st week in September. Initial impressions very good, particularly being allowed choice of tees, my 3 ball choosing to go off the very back. Recommend cart use because, as stated in previous reviews, involves continuous crossing of valley. Certainly a course which rewards good driving & not one for the beginner as many long carries required with drives & approach play. i.e. 18 handicap or better. If you can’t carry the ball comfortably 170 yards play elsewhere! This is limiting for many players given what is not an overly long layout (even from the back tips). Greens will probably be the fastest you will play on outside tournament golf; however inconsistent in pace, during my visit. Although not in the Ganton/Alwoodley class of near rivals (same green fees so fair to compare), offers good value for money as accepts 2-1 vouchers. A good day out but won’t rush back.
