Type of course? Links

Pleasant staff? Nice and welcoming

Best hole? The 18th because it was the last one

Après golf? Nice pre golf tuna sandwich in the company of the two ducks who come every day for their lunch.

Nice round? Horrendous. One word: shankytown.

Special memory? Chipping onto the 6th elevated upside-down saucer green, only to see my ball dribble over the edge and end up at the bottom of the slope. Four times.

Must play again? It’s really hard to be positive about a course when you have a horrible round. Objectively, it’s a classic, very well-maintained, interesting and difficult links course. I probably would have loved it if it hadn’t been for all the shanks. Still a bit traumatised, actually.
