Comments from Francois Gacougnolle-Larrieu, Streatley-on-Thames, Berkshire, England
There is no water in play, but the natural contours of the terrain offer a nice challenge to the visiting golfer. The tee-box of the first hole is in full view of the club-house lounge, so as to let the members form their impression of visitors right off the start. If you can stand this kind of pressure, the next item on the agenda is the climbing of the hill which will take all of the next four holes to master. Only then will one have a short moment of respite with the sixth, before measuring oneself ag ainst the long (455 yards) par-4 7th, ranked the hardest hole of the course. Comparatively, the back nine are easier and shorter as the par is 36 for 3171 yards vs. 35 for 3149 yards on the front nine, and the last four holes allow you to climb back down from the top of the hill, especially the 17th, a 511 yards par 5 which is in fact playing much shorter than this-if played straight, because any stray shot to the right will find a steep downhill to rough and bushes. All in all, a very enjoyable, if spor ty, round. Beware that it is preferable to book a round through the hotel where you are staying, and that the club does not take credit cards (although they were very nice to me when I showed up without cash based on erroneous indications from my hotel, a nd I could play on my word of having the cash delivered the next day). And pheasants! Did I mention pheasants? They are definitely not afraid of players, and form an interested gallery along most holes (I lost count of them after some four dozen on the f irst 10 holes). Green-fees are UKP 22.00 on weekdays, club rental UKP 10.00.
