Enjoyable layout with an interestingly designed back nine and attractive greens complexes. The fairways were not in good condition though. There’s a good set of par 3s, particularly the challenging 11th. Just three par 5s, and the first of these comes at the ninth where a water hazard makes you consider a layup for the second shot, or try and clear it. The par 5s are reasonably long, between 479 and 491 metres, this being the 18th which reminded me of the famous tee shot on the Road Hole of the Old Course at St Andrews. The elevated back tee on this dogleg right par 5 encourages long hitters to take a bold blind line over the top of the trees guarding the right side of the hole, just as you are asked to carry the Old Course Hotel sign on the Road Hole.
