I played in nice weather in September 2013. True to reputation, this course is an unheralded gem, limited only by it's somewhat remote location near the Scottish border. Greens and fairways were both in excellent shape, with a series of holes requiring longish, accurate shots. Three members joined me during my round, and one made the point that the course would be a viable entrant into the Open rota if it were 500 yards longer and locational logistics were more favorable. Hard to argue with that assessment, as the course does compare favorably to Lytham, Turnbery, Hoylake and others.
