After asking the other members of the party what they
thought of the trip to Macdonald Cardrona, the answers came back very positively.
On the plus side, the hotel was very comfortable and the
food was of an excellent standard. I was given a double room to start with but this
was immediately rectified by the attentive members of staff. My father and
I, who were meant to be sharing, were actually given a double room each in the
The price of beer was very good at £3.30p per pint which
pleased most of the party of 44 thirsty men on the Sunday night!
The big letdown was that we had booked tee times from 12:12pm
on the Sunday and everyone got there at 11:30 ready to ease into things only to
be told we were off at 11:40. BIG, BIG panic as everyone tried to sort clubs
and trolleys out in a hurry!
I had phoned the hotel to put out nearest the pin markers on
four holes which was done ok on the Sunday but they forgot on the Monday. The
course was very long and a bit tatty in places but this was probably due to the
horrendous weather on the Sunday afternoon so this is not really a down.
All in all, it was a very enjoyable weekend. The general consensus
is that we would probably not visit Cardrona again, but simply because
we have been there and done that now.
I will definitely be using yourgolftravel.com again as the
service provided was excellent.
