Course Review and Comments

I agree totally with the majority
of opinions- for a handicap golfer the greens verge upon unplayable.They are beautifully maintained -which only exarebates the sheer perverse lunacy of the designer!Has he ever played golf?I cannot begin to explain the absurdity of the layout-blind hazards(wierd tufted turds of earth)that are scattered in the middle of fairways-EVERY green a humpback rollercoster requiring the touch skill and patience of Tiger to make a two put from anywhere but a very select area! I have played it 3 times-the first in august it was very busy.last time- deserted! Apart from the few visitors who were doubtlessly relieved of quite a few beer tokens to live through the utter dejection of the experience. The truth of the matter is that a truly wonderful oppurtunity has been missed(do play kingsbarns)and what we have is just eye candy- not a golf course. It will need to be redone- at great expense.Did anyone on the Links whatever who approved and paid for this have any concept of what they ordered?send it back under the sale of goods act .
