Type of course? Undulating parkland.

Pleasant staff? It’s a huge business, with a hotel and two courses, so the service is professional, but quite impersonal. 

Best hole? We played both West and East courses and there are lots of great holes, but the 10th on the East course is beautiful, with a babbling brook snaking around the green.

Après golf? We stayed there two nights as part of our section’s Spring break, so we had plenty of time to sample the facilities. Again, this is a big corporate venue perfect for large groups, so it lacked any kind of personal touch.

Nice round? Great rounds. Although some of the greens were pretty ropey, both courses are very good and fun and parts of them are gorgeous. 

Special memory? This will forever remain the outing where Angela stripped down to her underwear in freezing weather to dive into the freezing lake on the 16th hole (West) in a bid to retrieve her trolley and bag. Sadly four irons remain in their watery grave.

Must play again? Yes, both courses.
