Winter golf

Winter golf is obviously a lot different to summer golf but this course should be closed and should not be charging money!
The tee boxes are not in play and either are the greens !
The course has the flag 60-80 yards away from the green on the fairways which is disgraceful!
I have played this course three times before and was a decent course but they should not be charging and taken peoples money !

enjoyable 3 ball

I played 18 holes with my 2 sons, one a 15 year old 18 handicapper who relishes new courses to test himself, the course is laden with tree lined fairways, so any pull left or right could be punished very easily. The greens were immaculate and fairways very good. Most fairways were reachable even for short hitters like myself. I would have no hesitation in playing their again. Didn't get to try out food or hospitality after round.
