Less linksy test
Maybe it was because it had rained a bit over night, but Fairhaven GC didn't play as linksy as many of the other courses in the area. It looked like a course that belonged in, say, Iowa. That said, it was a breezy track that was easy to walk and, sometimes more importantly, easy to find your ball. It was the first stop on a 36-hole doubleheader, and I'd recommend a similar course of action for other dimpleheads.
Beautiful little track that deserves more love
I'll be honest, this was the morning round of a 36-hole day that had nearby Royal Lytham & St. Annes as the afternoon round. So, I don't want to say I was overlooking the round, but I was overlooking the round. That was a mistake.
It was clear from the first hole, that this place is good. It has good variety, makes you think and presents plenty of a challenge.
It's also pretty and picturesque. On this day, the skies were fairly gray, so the browns, golds and greens of the course provided a nice contrast with the skies and gave us plenty of photo opportunities.
I'd play it again in a second.
