Played in beautiful May sunshine, what a great, fun golf course. We had whipped around the New ahead of schedule, so were able to have a quick very pleasant lunch on the terrace and then get away earlier than scheduled, assisted by the friendly pro shop. The Old is very much in the classic style, with much sportier golf than the New, some heroic elevated tee shots, tough par 3's and and blind shots. We agreed that the course was unique in our experience in that the stunning neighbouring houses actually enhanced the experience - lifestyles of the rich and famous ! There really wasn't a weak hole on the course, other than potentially 1 and 18 as with the New, but having putted out we enjoyed a nice light tea on the terrace, followed by a couple of beers watching the shadows lengthen over the stunning view. Certainly not cheap, but unlike some others they are very welcoming to those who have dug deep to be there, including a welcome sign listing all visiting golfers. Probably my favourite day of golf to date.
