    Excellent value course with some spectacular views and interesting holes, particularly the 7th and 13th. Challenging course on which to score well, especially if the wind blows, but gives opportunities to players of all standards. Would recommend a game here.

    It was on a quiet Thursday afternoon we tackled Austin Lodge. I have to say it is a very challenging experience for a 48 year old 24 handicapper who smokes too much. The course was in beautiful condition and it certainly does reward good shots. Course management is definitely the order of the day with all the gradients you encounter. Placement of the tees high above the valleys is a particular feature which brings out how good this course is on the eye. I would strongly recommend that anyone less fit than a marathon runner should hire a buggy for the round. Some of the climbs are awesome, and when you have navigated the all-uphill par 5 17th and then have to climb to the 18th tee you will wish you had. A thoroughly enjoyable experience, though - and with the 2-fore-1 concession, all for under a tenner!

    The course is set in three valleys which mean you hardly ever get a flat lie. It is a fairly new course and is coming on very nicely. There are five par five's, four par threes and nine par fours. Stroke index one is the sixth. It measures 368 yards from the yellow tees. It is on top of the second valley, so on a windy day, it is a real test. There is out of bounds just off the right side of the fairway and the left side slopes away down one side of the valley to a fence. A wild drive will normally punished, so an iron is advised off the tee. As you get towards the green, the ground starts to is to a large green that slopes rather violently from left to right. I find this to be the hardest green on the course and a two putt is not certain from outside five foot or so.
    My favourite hole on the course has to be the short third as I recently managed a hole in one. It measures 152 yards from the yellows and it is stroke index 9. you tees off from an elevated tee and hit down onto the green just over 150 yards away. There are two bunkers guarding three right side of the green and one on the left. If you tee shot ends up left, there is a mound of thick grass to catch your ball. There are a number of challenging holes. Those that spring to mind include the fourth were if your approach shot falls short of the green, your balls back at your feet.
    You have to play the course to appreciate its full potential, but when you get to the fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, twelve, fourteenth, and eighteenth tees, take your time and think hard.
