I really enjoyed Worplesdon, other than the terror of having to cross that busy road while hoping a driver is not experiencing "road rage" at the time.
While the start is somewhat easy, the first reminded me slightly of the great second hole at Pine Valley.
I liked every one of the par three's as there were so much fun to play with some really interesting greens.
The back to back par fives have a good amount of strategy to them to make up for their relatively short length. The 14th, the number one index on the course, is a difficult hole although like most holes at Worplesdon, its index of holes would not be rated as highly on other nearby courses.
Overall the course lacks length due to the modern game, but Worplesdon makes that up with its beauty and the pure joy of playing it. I found it to be a delight and one worth playing several times.
