Played RAF old course and west course this friday as a visiting fourball. Welcome is nice and club house is ok. We played the Old course as 2 x 2balls as RAF has a foursomes style similar to Muirfield and Royal St Georges.
(The members ahead of us promised it would be quick round given they were playing foursomes. Well it wasn't quick and took nearly 4 hours for the round!!)
The course is very nice and greens were very good. Fairways look to have been impacted by the recent wet weather. Rough is fair, but the heather is to be avoided at all costs.
1st and 18th holes are the least memorable, with in my opinion the best holes coming between 5-14.
We had a nice lunch after the round and then headed out on to the west course.
For £85 for two rounds with a county card is very good value for a course of this quality.
Would i rush back and play again next year? no. But would i come back in the future? yes definitely.
