I am in no way knocking St George's Hill, I still give it 6 balls. But what I will say is that when they updated the bunkering here, they took out some critically strategic Colt bunkers, and I honestly feel it is over bunkered now. It felt a bit detracted from the beautiful land that it is draped across. I can no longer class this as a Colt classic, just an amazing days golf, definitely deserving of its rise in the rankings. Although compared to Ganton, Woodhall Spa and Sunningdale New it loses out in the strategy stakes. Don't forget to play the green course, this is now the most fun at St George's Hill.
