Type of course? Undulating Cotswolds countryside gorgeousness.

Pleasant staff? The pro wouldn’t give me courtesy of the course (apparently I needed to call before), but he did give us a guest rate because both our clubs are part of the James Braid association.

Best hole? The 16th par 4 because it’s a great risk/reward hole.

Après golf? We had to rush off to meet our non-golfing friends. Yes, we still have a few of those.

Nice round? Brilliant. The “find the ball and hit it” method (also called “grip it and rip it”, but I find that appellation too aggressive) seems to be working. 33 points and a swing that works consistently.

Special memory? Driving to within two feet of the 16th green (276 yard par 4). Ok, ok, it is downhill and the wind was behind, but it put me in a perfect position left of the front bunker. Obviously it still took me three putts to finish it off.

Must play again? I would love to. The course is beautiful and varied and the walk in the Cotswolds countryside is magnificent.
