Preparing to host next year’s English Amateur, this club lives and breathes links golf. Indeed, they have used fescue to reduce weed grasses from the greens, to putt as the purest of links. In an area of the country popular with tourists, this is certainly not holiday golf; this is bona fide championship-class links fare.
