Panellists’ Comments: “‘Rose’ draws visiting golfers back time and again to hear her siren song. Rarely just visited once and once only – she watches impassively as dashing young men become winkled, grey and content while succumbing to her ample charms”; “A beautiful golf course in a magnificent setting with an excellent variety of golf holes and many truly memorable holes.”
