My old home course, where I played countless rounds between the ages of 12 and 25. I still remember all the intricacies more than 25 years later. I did cover this on my 2020 tour so the detailed review can be found in blog number 9.

The greens were in superb condition on this day in February 2021; firm, smooth and medium to quick in pace. The rest of the course was in good nick too, the photos show some bare spots, but these were due to spraying rather than lack of growth.

I still reckon the first 10 holes are as good a layout as you will find; playability might benefit from thinning of trees on a number of holes now but the layout, conditioning and aesthetics are first class.
