This was actually a very challenging little course. Most holes had a water feature you had to get the ball over or a nest of sand bunkers protecting the green. It's not an especially long course but tough, at least for a duffer like me. I lost several balls, I'll admit it. The greens were interesting with several multi-tier installations. Got a pretty good visor from the pro shop, their logo has the blue and white Scotland flag. The carts had GPS screens which made range-finding a breeze. Saw a couple turtles and wonderful collection of water birds. Fun course and would go back for sure.
Played the back nine - Was happy to be given the option of playing either the front or back! Granted, it was "offseason" for all intents and purposes [very end of November], and so we also didn't feel rushed in any way. Most of the course is surrounded by private homes [so, watch your slice]. There is a fair share of water and tall grass hazards on the back nine. The gentleman in charge of the pro shop [small, but nice] was quite friendly and welcoming. There is a large eating and bar area, when you walk inside the clubhouse, which is probably rockin' during the regular playing season. At any rate, we definitely look forward to playing "the links" again!
i've only played here twice in early season (march-april), so i don't know how it is in season. heres the skinny. fairways covered in geese sh*t, absolutely covered. basically every hole is bordered by houses (not a big fan of that but that's just me). the greens are nice and are the best feature of the course, that and it's the closest course to ac. but only by maybe 10-15 mins. And allegedly way back when, the pro's would practice here before heading to the british open. just an average course. and as an aside, many signs saying not to relieve self on course, use the 2 bathrooms on course to be respectful of neighbors. get in them with cart key. what about the walkers who don't have the key??? a stupid thing to complain about, but thats what i do! worth a shot, no doubt. memorable....probably not.
