The wife and I played there on Sept. 11 and it was great value for money! The greens had been aerated two week prior and were completely acceptable; the members were indicating they were scary fast before the aeration and I don't have any reason to doubt that. The rest of the course was in great shape, I can see how things might get a little soggy in the winter time.
I'll certainly echo many of the previous comments, a great routing on a hilly sight but it was still a delightful walk; both the wife and I walk and carry and she remarked how it was an easy journey with no hill climbing. The 10, 11 and 14 are worth the price of admission alone! The 18th could be one of the best finishing holes on the planet.
Buxton was a very pleasant surprise, I wasn't expecting a 19th century Spa Town built out of granite, the buildings in the town were quite impressive. We got a great rate at the Palace Hotel by using booking.com the day before. The meal at the Brasserie was one of the best on our trip, highly recommended.
