Remarkably perfect

Amazing layout from one of the best course designers who ever lived. Very challenging and makes you think about every shot. No complaints at all. I’ve only played it 3 times in the last 4 years and each time it has been in immaculate condition

They could charge so much more for the quality of it. So well worth it.

Superb!

Compact course

Whilst the quality of the fairways and greens was good. The compact/overlapping layout makes it feel claustrophobic/hectic. It was a busy day, and pay slow

Practice facilities equally compact

Poor value due to temporary greens.

We played on a beautiful sunny day although there had been a light frost at first light. We were surprised and disappointed to find that we were required to play 14 holes on temporary greens which were badly cut. Some of those greens were under treatment, others should have been brought into play.
When I expressed my disappointment to the professional he just shrugged his shoulders and advised it had been frost early on. We teed off in short sleeves at 0954.
Pace of play was ok until we teed off on the blind 16th to find that a pair had cut in front of us.
Not a great experience and we would certainly have expected a discount or voucher.

A peculiar winter round

The round started with a a brief hello to the person in the shop who was on the phone.

What happened next- very odd. First 11 holes , great. Then on the 12th- a sign- warning golfers to not play from the fairway- which thanks to a slight errant drive, was a moot point. Thereafter at the beginning of each fairway on par 4s there was a similar sign.

I thought I’d been clever and done my research- a tweet from last winter extolling the virtues of Wilpshire ‘no winter mats’ but I guess it’s too much to expect a course in Lancashire to remain fully open in cold, dark November.

Roll on April!
