and really looking forward to it. Consensus seems to be it's long and tough if the pins are in anything but the easiest positions, or if the weather is less than ideal. Weather forecast is good, hope the rest is OK. Anyone played recently and have any comments or tips?

Yeah, not as long as I thought it would be, though, albeit we played off the white markers. So many bunkers and in all the wrong places! Certainly some magnificent holes, plenty of rewards for the accurate ball positioner (not me, unfortunately!). A quick review from a 17 handicapper: Overall I found the fairways good but not fantastic (bit patchy) and the greens in really good condition and very consistent. I had about 34 putts for the round with 1 x 3-putt. The 2nd hole was out of play due to a tee restructure, but the 19th hole, a fairly short par 3 between 5 & 6, makes for a more than adequate replacement. The bunkers were generally quite bad due to the recent wet weather, and it looks like they haven't been raked since. Makes it difficult when most bunker shots are off concrete-like surfaces, and you tend to spend a few shots out of bunkers there! It's nice to play a course with a bit of history, though. Would love to play it in tournament condition...

Good review Kwikee . Sensational off the back tees and plays long. IMO the front nine is the best nine holes of golf on the sand belt.

NO, Shanks......that's what he does to get a rise.
