Walton Heath New was a thoroughly enjoyable course that featured a tremendous amount of variety in the demands of each hole. While the course seemed less challenging than the Old this may be an illusion since the challenges are placed at various points over the course instead of the brutal test of the front 9 that is the Old. It's true that due to the unusual summer heat that the course was not as picturesque as in the past. Still that meant that the fairways were hard and fast which gave you more distance and often rolls into the rough, which was not as penal due to the lack of rain. Overall an excellent test of golf that is a fine compliment to the Old course and creates a wonderful day of golf if you play both. Great staff and very welcoming to this visitor.
