Ventured to Painswick recently.
As wonderfully eccentric and enjoyable as ever.
Firm and bouncy, dry greens, daisies galore and all the better for it. Greensites full of interest and challenge and inventiveness....putting from way off the greens, bouncing shots into banks, aim 90* off and trickle a shot down a slope. Uphill shots, downhill shots, sidehill lies. Great fun. And all within a yardage of circa 4,800 yds.

Nice travel article for those seeking Painswick but also willing to smell the roses:

https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/17/travel/what-to-do-in-the-cotswolds-england.html?hp&action=click&pgtype=Homepage&clickSource=story-heading&module=mini-moth&region=top-stories-below&WT.nav=top-stories-below

Well, if you are going to check out the Queen's Privy...do play Cleeve Cloud set on the hill above Winchcombe.  There is also an interesting walk from town/Sudley Castle to the ruins of a Roman villa. It all makes for a pleasant few days in a relatively intact and unspoiled Cotswold town.  Plus, nearby Chipping Campden is completely undersold as it is one of the very best and most beautiful market towns I have ever visited with some good pubs serving Old Hooky rumoured to be nearby.

I met the adventurous Tim Gallant for a game around Painswick recently. The course is crazy as ever!  That said, the growth of vegetation in the quarries is alarming. The 15th is almost completely blind! Some quarries offer zero chance of recovery. On the positive side, after playing Royston, the first doesn't seem that harsh!

Please see updated tour.

For those who havenít had the pleasure of playing Painswick or arenít able to quite fathom from stills photos the intricacies of the terrain this might assist although you may wish to view via some sort of fast forward to avoid the chat and play. Or maybe not.

I've always thought Painswick looked interesting, thanks mainly to photos and discussions here, but this video absolutely blew me away.  The course looks so wild and fun, exactly the type of place I would love to visit.  Moved way up my list!  Thanks.

Thanks WW. Pretty good film. Although, I hope during his normal games that he doesn't leave his bag in terrible position around the green hole after hole. 👀
