Strangely enough, I remember more holes from the New than from the Old, yet my feeling is that I liked the Old better. Must be that the beers I had in between rounds sharpened both my memory and my judgement. Having said that, if this course is to be considered lesser, then as a 36 hole club you could be worse off. The course is outstanding. The one-shotters are absolutely sublime (the 5th is on par with the 13th at Muirfield) and there isn't a weak hole to be found. £270 for 36 holes isn't exactly cheap, but we thought it was money well spent.
