Greens are in good condition, fairways could do with a bit of water. A few tricky holes playing off the yellow tees makes it a stiffer test approximate 6400 yards. Caddies good at reading greens mine was number 206. I shot 82 handicap 17 I put that down to good reads from the caddy only 28 putts!!!!
