Royal St. Georges
« on: Jun 22, 2008, 19:15:25 »
First course in England to hold the Open and everyone who's anyone in golf has played here.

The things that strike you about the course are the large rolling dunes, bunkers (everywhere) and the fact the course continually changes direction so you never play two holes with the same wind direction. The rough is tough offline but you have to be really wild to suffer. Greens are not hugely fast but have lots of subtle borrows. Conditions is excellent and the club has a real old-school atmosphere (and all the better for it).

I'd give it 9/10.

Good flyby here (from The Telegraph for the 2011 Open):

Amazing how the video "flattens" the course. The 10th green is atop a large dune, probably 15 ft drop offs all around, but looks flat on the vid.
