The course is 1,500 yards shorter than its big brother but with slightly smaller greens and more aggressive contouring around them the challenge is no less diminished and arguably a lot more fun. It’s the type of course that feeds your imagination and enables you to conjure up shots that you rarely get chance to play on most other courses.
I can’t speak highly enough of this lovely ‘wee course’ and unless it’s demanding championship golf that you’re seeking for your second round of the day this is more than worth a play.
The raised green at the 275 yard first sets a tone that resounds throughout the full 18 holes. There are a number of short par fours that alone wouldn’t be out of place on many a top golf course. As a collection they come together to produce a lively and entertaining round of golf.Edward Battye
