Bank holiday round
We played southern valley as we had not played there before and it is fairly local.
The staff were pleasant and advised us that the course was relatively quiet and we could tee off when ready.
The course it well laid out and signposted with a nice mixture of holes, although the par 3’s are all a bit similar.
The tee boxes are a bit tired, and the fairways barren in places, but the greens were fine if a little long.
All in all a nice morning out
Greens in very good conditions.
Tee boxes could do with cutting, and some of the fairways, but greens in a very good condition. Had my best round.
My regular course
As other reviews mentioned the course needs to look after little bits slightly better. Bunkers and tee boxes. Greens have improved in my time playing up there. This course gives u a challenge due to the wind. Always windy up there and plays a big part to your round. Some good variations of tests on the course. Some short par 4s added with some narrow long ones like 6th. Some long par 5s normally into wind like 8th. 12th par 3 on a windy day good luck aim your tee shot wide of green and still struggle to hold it on the green on other side. 11th and 12th wind is a massive factor.
The course was ok, some tee boxes need grass cutting. biggest problem was the bunkers, lots of stones and sand rock hard. I like playing the course but those bunkers have caused a lot of damage to my sand wedge. Always been a problem here. Easily solved by just putting more sand in them and always rake them before start of the days golf. Take pride in them.
Fairways, and bunkers
The fair ways have a lot stones on them, and also the bunkers.. greens were good though.
