Alex Sherratt

I have been playing golf for 35+ years; I am member at Church Stretton Golf Club in Shropshire. Lowest handicap I have achieved is 3; lowest gross round in a comp is a -6. Anyway forget the figures I just enjoy playing golf on different layouts. I am close to playing over 150 differing courses and out of the current Top 100 I have played just over 20. My thoughts are that the Top 100 courses are getting too expensive and are thus becoming out of reach for many people. My top 3 courses are Hillside, Royal Liverpool (Hoylake) and Moray (Old).

Played the course after a 2 week dry sunny spell, the course therefore was hard, bouncy and fast running so at times it was impossible to keep the ball on the fairways th...

What I would call a pleasant course, not long or hard making it ideal for the 1st leg of our trip whilst on the way to Cardiff. The course seems to circle around the club...
