At A Glance

  • Strategic bunkering.
  • Lace edged, ragged Simpsonesque bunkers are thankfully reappearing.
  • Heather abounds on a superb sand-based site.
  • Routing made of sets of triangles.
  • Micro-contours with green grass in depressions and thin grass on the tops of mounds.
  • Depressions in front of greens. Perhaps they are inspired by 14 at Woking or the Valley of Sin at The Old Course?
  • Doughnut or Island Bunker on 7 & 13 is similar to Muirfield's on 18.
  • Centreline bunker on 13 as at Woking on 4.
