Sean,I'm disappointed that you liked CB less than I did, but I played it years ago when I had less of an appreciation of GCA. In those days I didn't object to the hill climbing - no doubt I would agree with you more today. I think it was partly the setting that did it for me. It is a very special place (and clubhouse) and the Conan Doyle connection adds something for me. I love the way the course keeps crossing roads and tracks - like Liphook and Hankley (Hilversum, too, for that matter). You meet people out on their horses or walking their dogs. But, back to the course. I'm sorry you didn't appreciate the 2nd. It must have sprouted trees since my day. It used to be one of the best par 4s of all. I'm also sorry you didn't appreciate the 6th. It's a famed hole and one sees why. I couldn't play it today, but I used to be able to, a long iron slightly right of centre simply to avoid all that rubbish low down on the left. I played the hole twice and on both occasions got a par, so I have no complaints about its fairness or otherwise. I do appreciate what you do in these reports and it is not for me to shoot you down. Keep up the good work!
