I played Goose Valley recently during its busy season and was impressed with how well the course conditioning was holding up with extra traffic. The fairways and greens are in good shape and reward good shots. When the wind picks up at Goose Valley length goes out the window, with accuracy more important. I love the views many of the holes provide and the proximity to the sea and lagoon adds another dimension. Short par 4s at 17 and 18 make for a cracking finish when there is money on the game and the par 5s are a defining feature as they can be birdie or double bogey.
