The weather was shocking. Heavy rain all night the night before, a bit of snow in the morning and windy. I don't think any of us were looking forward to playing.
It's an impressive complex. Automatic barriers, large hotel, beautiful big houses dotted around the edge of the course.
The pro informed us we couldn't use trolleys, which was fair enough.
The first hole is a par 5, which is unusual. It was our first round of the year, combined with the wet fairways, rain, cold and wind it seemed a monster. We were impressed with the first green, very true, excellent condition considering how much rain we'd had.
After four or five holes we were all commenting on how good the course was. Challenging, long, good condition, great greens.
Every single hole has been well designed. You can't just reach for a driver on every par 4. Well placed bunkers, streams and water to negotiate.
Hardly any 'easy' holes. Every hole provides a challenge in some way.
By the end of the round we were all enthusing about the course.
We played it in very tough conditions and our scores reflected that but we still really enjoyed it.
We also had the course to ourselves which was nice.
We teed off at 8am Easter Monday and played of the yellow tees.
We would love to be able to play off the blue tees but it would be too long for us.
Can't wait to play it again

He would play this course again.

It has rained for days. My own course was closed so we came here there was some standing water but overall the ball still ran on the fairways. The greens were excellent. The only problem was there were no tee numbers as we had gone with someone who had played it before he knew where each tee was. I would definitely recommend this course

We were a walking two ball behind a large group using buggies. Although it was a little slow we were able to enjoy the course and have a chat. The course was in great condition. It helped that we had played the course before. We had one heavy shower but this didn't effect the course. I would recommend this course it's a good test of golf and rewards a good shot.
The only down side is, as usual the price of drinks are a bit steep but that's the same at all clubs now.

Nice long course in great condition but by far the toughest I've ever played. Was around 15-20 shots down on my normal score and so was my friend. Lost a fair few balls on the process too. A good challenge but not a course to build your confidence on.

Very very slow, marshalls laid down quite strict rules to start with, then never saw them again all day.

Tee off was on time, second hole 4 groups of 4 waiting not a Marshall in sight

Course was in good condition. But spoilt by unprecedented slow play all in all over 6 hours round

All in all felt the course and company were just happy to take your money with no real appreciation for the golfers

Won't be returning

He would not play this course again.
