Alexander Park Golf Course
|Red (W)||73||5341 yards|
I was looking for a reasonably priced Sunday afternoon round near Malvern and this course popped up. Easy to find and it has a nice wide driveway and adequate parking. The golf pro was very friendly and had be out on the course in no time.
Having only been open 2 years or so, this course is in no way mature; most of the trees have clearly been recently planted. The front nine is fairly easy, I managed to par both the par 5's which is a rare thing for me!
Things change on the 10th where a blind drive over ridge to a fairway reveals a virtual island green (it isn't truly and island but has water on many sides. Faced with a 160 yard shot I went for it and instantly regretted it. Should have laid up and pitched on. The back 9 has plenty of water so accurate drives are a must. There isn't a single bunker on the course, which made the local rule on the scorecard about stones in bunkers a little odd. Perhaps they will add some in the future?
Really enjoyed my round and will be returning to this little gem in the future. It will be interesting to see how it matures in a few years.
Great 10th hole
Quite a good layout some nice holes could do with signs to next tee by the greens
