Type of course? Parkland

Pleasant staff? We didn’t really deal with anyone – the electricity was off, so we were told to tee off whenever we could and the alarm was screaming as we finished, so we went home.

Best hole? I really liked the 9th par 5, up and down with a stream at the bottom. Probably because it was more typical of a downland course.

Après golf? We fled the alarm, sadly. It would have been nice to see if the clubhouse was more attractive inside than outside (see photo).

Nice round? It was very hot and I lost the will to live from holes 10 to 12. Charlotte played a stonker (40 points). 

Special memory? Hitting the pin with my chip on hole 14 for an almost-eagle, leaving me with a tap in for birdie. And my faith in golf was restored.

Must play again? Although it’s a parkland course, there are some great holes on this course that I’d love to play again – especially on the back 9.
