Panellists’ Comments: “A true classic track and traditional club”; “Strategic bunkering along the fairways and eating into the greens places a premium on straight hitting – the greens have subtle breaks but are always true”; “The Seniors’ Open was held here in 2011 and the players raved about it so much that it is now on the permanent rota.”
