Has Moortown lost its way in the last few years after the trendy 'returning it to how it was' landscaping? There is no escaping that there are some cracking holes, a par 5 starter and devilishly tough long 2nd. The stretch from the 11th, in the heather, are strong holes needing a tip top game. I'm afraid to say I missed the isolation of tree lined holes where you could lose yourself in solitude. Indeed, around the half way house, it was akin to the M25 in rush hour, as so many tees and greens are collected in a small area. Once away from there the closing holes are fun. The 16th with a tactical call to make off the tee, the 17th a gentle par 3 and the last with an iconic approach to the clubhouse.
