STRATHPEFFER

Golf Monthly - - Rory Mcilroy -

I got a very friendly wel­come at this short, hilly beauty, and the course to my­self as the winds from my morn­ing round at Fortrose showed no sign of abat­ing. The 1st is a tempt­ing short par 4 from an el­e­vated tee, but there­after there is much climb­ing! I couldn’t reach the first two long par 3s into the wind, but fared bet­ter on the next two (yes, four in a row) – a short, blind down­hiller, then a longer blind up­hiller! I loved the 8th with its egg-timer fairway, and the short par-3 10th at the top over wa­ter. The over­all ex­pe­ri­ence is one of pure golf­ing ad­ven­ture, with just a lit­tle ex­er­tion thrown in. Stats: par 67, 5,001 yards W: strath­p­ef­fer­golf.org GF: £30 per round; £40 per day
