SeanWow. Wasn't this course one of Colt's most heavily bunkered? Do you think it is better now or then?
Sean I've added some old photo to Mark's thread, including the 5th and the "White Cliffs of Dover"TomI think you may be thinking of Tandridge...that's where he went nuts with bunker: about 280 I've heard and on a undulating site too. Prestbury has definitely had quite a few filled but wasn't nearly as heavily bunkered as Tandridge.
Sean,Nice job. The pictures you took show a very nice piece of land. The back 9 appeared to be more open. Is this the case? The fifth hole looks similar to the 1st at Orchard Lake CC.DD
Sean,Thanks for these pictures. Wish I could have joined you.I like the look of the setting of the 3rd and 5th greens, and the 9th looks a cracker up the hill! Some other really good looking holes also, but the thing which jumped out at me from the photos was the par 3s. I always think of Colt putting together a very good set of 3s on any of his courses I've played, but these look to be okay rather than very good. What did you think?Cheers,James
Sean the photos are from Colt's own collection and must be from the time of construction. The course isn't quite finished in some of the pics. Perhaps they hadn't built the 17th tee yet?The 16th green still looks pretty "square" from certain viewpoints. But probably shrunkenFrom the club's website.
