Loved the course. The holes were interesting and challenging. The course was in great shape.

Great day from start to finish. Arrived early and enjoyed the driving range with an excellent set of hired clubs which I was able to change to the right shafts. Played the Faldo course which was in great condition and under the lights was an unforgettable experience. Very surreal playing from light to dark!
