I played Craibstone in the rain a couple of weeks ago and agree it's in excellent condition. Scored 33 points (out in 20 back in 13). I did question their yardages on a couple of the par 3s though, (7th & 10th), went through the back twice without touching the green even after dropping a club due to the elevation!!

 

If you can't putt though you might struggle.

I would agree they can both be quite deceptive especially if there is a wind about which is 90% of the time. You are not the first to question the yardage of some of the holes but they are in fact spot on.

 

The Greens are the best thing about the place. Nice a big as well.

What did you go for in the end Hobbit?

 

I have a lovely Sonnartec 3 wood which will take alot for me to change. Also have a Sonnartes Hybrid 17 degree. I love the Ping G5 3 wood and with the new G10 comming out prices should start to fall. Never been a fan of Cobra and even less now that tit Poulter is sponsored by them.

 

MY BAG

 

Titleist 905r Driver 9.5 with Grafalloy Prolaunch Red shaft.

Sonnartec S2.5 3 wood 15 degree Aldila NV shaft.

 

Sonnartec MD 17 degree hybrid Irod shaft.

 

Ping I5 irons 4-W

Ping Black Nickel Wedges 52, 56, 60.

 

Odyssey 2 Ball putter

 

 

Also back down to 4. Bonus.

Get your pass booked, flights are sorted for 27 December - 3rd January.

 

I'll take the clubs so let me know which day is best for you. I would quite like to play with Ian and Hamish as well but don't think I'll be allowed out to play twice.
