I played here for a college competition once and it's a fantastic place. Whilst always shadowed by the company of its prestigious neighbour, it does its best to show its own qualities with well laid out holes and wonderful greens.
We played it in what was 30 mph winds so whilst it wasn't a great scoring day, it was still an amazing experience to play. Sights next door of the England flag pins you see of Royal St George's may leave some disappointed but the two aren't as far apart as some people may think.
I think this course could be one of the harder courses I have played, maybe because it was such a bad day, but when the rough is up, any errant shot was difficult to find. Safe to say I was happy to be back in the clubhouse asap as far as the scorecard was concerned!
