Nice course

My rating would be higher but I was disapointed that winter greens were in play especially as normal greens were in play apart from 1 hole the week before, it did not appear to be frosty either. This is disappointing as it takes away the enjoyment of playing a good course. the normal greens also look to be in good condition

Nice quick links, well maintained.

Had a nice quick round first thing Saturday, still playing off fairways without mats. Green had just cored and top dressed but overall course was in great condition. Hopefully get another round before winter greens.

A challenging wee course.

I thought it was a challenging wee course, however not very well signposted, so quite easy to not know where the next hole was. Lots of water shots. I really didn't enjoy it.

Good link course

Is not the championship course. Is a nine holer you play twice for 18 of different tees (red front nine, yellow back nine). Moderate challenging course and a short course, no par 5. Greens can be reached in two easily.
