Type of course? Links. Very very linksy.

Pleasant staff? The two ladies who served us our sandwiches and cream tea after our round couldn’t have been more lovely.

Best hole? All the ones with elevated tees by the sand dunes so you get a view of the gorgeous beach and the course, so 7, 9 and 10.

Après golf? The cream tea was very good.

Nice round? Challenging but great. The wind made it difficult, but that’s links golf for you. We were there for my committee away day and we all loved it, including 80 year old Caroll, one of the funniest people I’ve ever met and who experienced her first selfie ever after the round (see below).

Special memory? Walking up the 11th and seeing a player wave at me. I realised it was someone I played against last year, when she was a member at Ham Manor. She recognised me and it was lovely to see her; I invited myself back to do a review of the course with her.

Must play again? Yes, for the review, but also because even though it’s not listed in True Links – An Illustrated Guide to the Glories of the World’s 246 Links Courses, which seems to be the bible on the subject, it’s still a great links course.
