On arrival the routine for the practice area was different from all other courses. We discovered that a token system was in operation but we were not advised of this at the reception so had no time to correct the situation. There was confusion at the start when we were advised that people due to play with us were late but would join up later in the round!! This did not happen but at the 10th a buggy drew up behind us, the players watched us tee off and then drove back to the first tee. We had the impression that they were members and were looking to go through but were frustrated that our drives indicated that this would not be possible. We then came to a tee where eight players were waiting and we were asked to play through which we did. Then somehow there appeared two players behind us who again seemed to be members. They were obviously familiar with the course and played up very close to our positions! The course is tight with water hazards and the sheer number of ground staff driving around spoiled our round. Not a course we would choose to play again and the distance from the hotel made for an expensive taxi journey.
