Excellent condition for time of year
I played here on 29 November. The course was excellent. Completely dry fairways, not a single plugged ball, which after the recent rain we've had was quite an achievement.
The greens were cut well, still showing signs of recent hollatine marks, but still ran very well.
The course layout is not overly long or difficult, fairways are wide so you can get away with some fairly wild tee shots.
The few negatives I had was firstly 2 holes were closed completely which I didn't know until I arrived. Although the pro did say I could play 1 and 2 again to make 18.
But the biggest problem was the pace of play. It was pretty busy for winter golf, but every group in front was holding people up. I played as a solo player and it took me 3 1/2 hours for 16 holes. I'd normally do that in about 2 hours. So I was standing waiting on every shot on every hole.
Each group in front eventually let me play through, but there seemed a real reluctance.
But all in all, I really enjoyed this course and would play it again, but I really do wish people would work on their pace of play, or just play people through!
