Challenging, well designed and varied
After the driest summer I can remember the course played brilliantly. The bounces on the fairway were fair, greens holding and tee boxes taking a tee peg!
Every hole offers a couple of ways to play them, some shape for a draw, some for a fade. The par threes are excellent, really well laid out and well defended. Every hole demands a solid tee shot, not necessarily long but well placed.
There is no straight up and down par 5 but that’s a good thing!
There is a lot of internal out of bounds, I’m not sure they were necessary on each occasion.
Pace of play was excellent, I downloaded the course map from the website before I travelled, well worth doing as the next hole is not always obvious from the last green.
I would not hesitate in recommending this course, I’ll be going back myself soon!
Nothing to write home about
Confusing course layout. Very few to virtually no next tee direction markers and some holes gave no clue to the hole layout. Could really do with on tee hole maps for first time players. J played the course along time ago and could remember very little of it. TBH the course has gone downhill in my opinion. Sorry to say but Ashby has become nothing more than run of the mill.
