I know lots of golfers rate Bowood and Manor House above Tidworth, but having played Wiltshire golf for 45 years now, Tidworth is the one course I really look forward too. I know it's not heathland or links golf but Colt really was at his best when he designed this course. The design is terrific, the greens these days are always in great condition with typical Colt undulations. Each hole couldn't be more different, and the wind factor means that the course varies each time you play it. Great set of par 3's, although I would get rid of the pine tree in the middle of the 11th, spoils the view of a very good hole, or just move the tee left so it frames the hole instead. Best day out in Wiltshire.
