Hidden perils and slow play - not that enjoyable
Perhaps I should have studied the course more closely before playing but, as I didn't, its hidden perils tripped me up and, combined with a funereal society group ahead of us, made for a poor afternoon's entertainment. Going off-line on the many tree-lined narrow fairways is punished harshly (precipitate 30 foot drops; impenetrable undergrowth/bushes) and this suggests this is a course either for those who play it (or want to play it) regularly or are assured straight hitters. For a first-timer, the greens are nightmarishly difficult, If you are an average golfer playing Puttenham for the first time, the best advice seems to be "do your research, play defensively and expect a pasting on the greens."
What a great course ! The greens were superb as was the condition of the fairways ...
An absolute pleasure to play , definitely needs to be played a few time ...
Lovely day out
Well established course in the Surrey countryside which offers a really pleasant round in a lovely setting. Some of the rough is unforgiving but not unreasonably so. Love the coffee hut at halfway.
