Decided to play the Arderne course with it being a short course and having a break from the driver. First impressions it seemed forgiving and fun until you hit a shot in the rough and couldn’t find your ball. Fairways were long and some of the greens were poor. If they spent a little more time maintaining the course I believe it would be worth a lot more then 12.50 a round. I get that there trying to make the course more challenging With making it imperative your in the fairway but when your losing more balls on a 4500 yard odd course then you are on a 6700 championship course, it starts to grate. Also wasn’t the easiest course to find once your in the grounds as no sign posts to direct you. Not bad for the money but I wouldn’t make my way down just for that course alone, however if your playing the Prem or the Champ course it may be worth doing 9 holes on the Arderne for a warm up.
