Only course in Europe to have hosted European mens/ladies/senior/challenge tour events. Inland park links, plays fairly wide and long(from the whites) with fescue rough once you're 'out there' (although much of the rough have been cut recently during an extensive redesign involving bunker placements/sand/drain, tee boxes and a few hole redesigns). Generally very receptive greens, even during dry spells. Hawtree have managed to design a course where you don't just pull the big stick on each hole. Good players will use most of the equipment in the bag during 18 at Simons.
Biggest praise I can give the course, is that I've been a member for 10+ years and never got tired of playing the course.
We were a group of +/- scratch golfers that joined another highly praised "Top 100 golfcourse" in the region, but we all returned to Simons after just one year as we all prefer this course.
