A truly great experience. I was at a conference and played it twice on two very windy days. The course was in great condition with only a few worn areas.They are readying it for the seniors open. So luckily for me they had cut the championship tees so whilst I played off the whites I nipped back to the famous tee on the 9th and with a wind on my back drove it to ninety yards and made a par .... dream completed.The course is breath taking in my opinion. They could not have used the coast or the dunes better. Even the first tee has the hills in the distance and is a fine links hole. it then builds and builds with the stunning holes in the middle. Perhaps there are only three holes which have little visual beauty, but normally a glance behind you restores that.It is a master piece and a course that anyone with a reasonable handicap can get a feel of the strategic nature of the routing and bunkering. Wonderful.
