A quiet, peaceful and traditional course that is well worthy of its ranking. A demanding layout that requires precision striking throughout, and a short game that can get you out of trouble when necessary. In dank and windy conditions its teeth are all too apparent with clinging rough reducing shot distance abruptly. Some of the starting and finishing courses are a bit similar in aspect but with great variety in the middle with all but two (par three) holes running roughly East or West. A course to be respected and admired more than loved maybe, but with a lot to admire.
