Played here 23rd may on a very blustery day.Condition of course very good indeed and greens probably the best I have played on this year. Scoring difficult due to very windy conditions but not impossible as you do get some shelter from the majecstic woodlands.There are many very good holes but the spell from the 10th to the 12th is probably the best. The 10th is a brutal par 4, the 11th an extremely long downhill par 3 and the 12th a long par 4 that demands a very good second shot. The view from the 3rd tee is also very special.The finish is a little quirky, with the 17th being a short, but very tight par 4 and the 18th a mid iron par 3 but with OOB just right of the grrenAll in all a lovely course albeit we thought the green fee of £65 a little steep.Now for the bad bit - if you look at their website they boast about the 'most welcoming golf club of the year award'. We arrived after a 150 mile drive and went straight to the locker room to change into our golfing gear. Unfortuantely, we received a volley of abuse from 1 member who objected to us walking into the locker rooom wearing jeans. If this is the most welcoming club in the country I hate to think what the least welcoming is like and this takes the edge of the overall rating.
