Is this the most underrated course in England, possibly. To not get into the top 100 makes a bit of a mockery of the top 100, because not only does this deserve to be in the top 100, it is actually far better than many of the courses that get in the top 50 in my opinion. It is long, but playable and there is a good range of holes, with the par 4 4th being a particularly good hole. The best holes are however the far side of the railway bridge, with the stretch from 10 to 13 being up there with any of the courses on this list. The course has like many done a vast amount of tree clearance which has improved the course, if it had been down to me at the back of 13 and 15 where the trees have been completely removed, I would have left two or three trees to add to the character of the holes. Overall a great course in a great location and a very smart clubhouse. Underrated, definitely, and just looking at the reviews on this website, it needs to enter the top 100.
