Deal - a great track and the hardest in this wonderful stretch of links land that, from North to South, includes Princes, Royal St George's, this one and then a little further South Littlestone and Rye. I have played then all multiple times and although Rye is my favourite track and RSG my favourite club, the golfing challenge at Deal is the greatest. Well documented course with opportunities over the first 11 holes before the stiffest finish I've played starts. Interestingly though the prevailing wind seems to be moving - certainly the last few times I've been at Deal the wind has been either on or off-shore. Let's hope it swings back to the SW. Absolutely worth the trip. Lovely 'old school' club, wonderful staff and members and an extremely tough golf course. Purrrrfect!
