Snapshots

Greens undulate and are quick


A lovely layout, which will enthrall the nature lover in you


Quirky at times – but that only adds another layer of challenge


The 17th hole can be a round-wrecker if you don’t get over the wetlands fronting the green


You’ll need to ask your irons for some carry on occasion, with wetlands creeping into the layout now and then


The course can be tight – at times suffocatingly so – but there are a fair number of open holes as well


Tee boxes don’t give you a lot of choices on where to set up


Oddity: Hole No. 1 comes back through the clubhouse


Both 9s will consistently challenge you
