About the Golf Club
In golf, the name of Dr. Alistair MacKenzie will forever be synonymous with the course that hosts the U.S masters. Though Augusta national is undoubtedly MacKenzie's masterpiece, it is widely accepted that his place in history as a legendary architect, was already assured. MacKenzie was hardly a prolific designer like a James Braid but his courses are typical of his vision, none more so than South Moor.
Here, he has designed a course that winds between gorse, heather and bracken in a superb moorland layout. The large, slopey greens are a typical MacKenzie trait, guaranteeing that even when hit in regulation, the player will have to work hard with his putter to match par, harder still to make birdie.
At 6,273 yards from the back tees, the course is hardly long by today's standards but with a premium on accuracy it would be foolish to try to overpower the course with the driver, particularly with out of bounds a factor on eleven holes.

I loved it. There are some truly memorable holes on the course - i particularly liked the 17th. I am sure that the course bears playing a few times before you can crack it because on numerous occasions I played what I thought were perfectly good blind shots only to find the fairway had doglegged and my ball had been gobbled up by the rough.
