Type of course? Undulating parkland

Pleasant staff? Yes

Best hole? The par 5 4th. Long, narrow and very tricky.

Après golf? I don’t think we had a drink that time, but we once had a fantastic afternoon tea.

Nice round? We both felt pretty confident we’d do well on this “little 9 hole” course, but it made mince meat of us. Very pretty and deceptively difficult.

Special memory? A funny chat with a solo female player ahead of us, who had just enthusiastically taken up the game and told us that the fourball in front of her were “a right bunch of wankers”. We could neither confirm nor deny.

Must play again? Yes, but mostly for the afternoon tea.
