We planned our trip some six months ago and hoped the weather in November would be kind to us! As it turned out we played in T-shirts...a bizarre experience at the start of the English ‘winter’!
However we all arrived at between 12.00 and 13.00 on Weds. 2nd November to what turned out to be a beautiful day weather wise, our first tee time was 14.32 and after a light lunch in the golf complex and then checking into our superb rooms we hired some buggies and headed off to the first tee.
The course is not very long but it is challenging and on the Wednesday afternoon we played nine holes which was most enjoyable. Dinner that evening was in the hotel restaurant where we enjoyed good food and after some reminiscing and a few drinks we retired to bed.
Breakfast the following morning was very good and set us up for the full 18 holes, which again was played from buggies. We got a good deal from the Pro Shop on the buggies and the staff there were very polite and helpful.
We relaxed in the Spa area with a swim, jacuzzi, sauna and steam room which helped relax the muscles before having an afternoon drink and rest. Dinner in the evening was of the same quality as on Wednesday so after a few more drinks everyone retired at about midnight again.
Overall we would mark the venue and facilities 9 out of 10, not a ten because some of the ladies wanted to go shopping and not much close by!
