    Re: anyone played Frilford Heath Red Course

    Been a couple of years since I played it but it's one of the best courses in the area.

    Not horribly long but should be running fast in the current weather conditions and the greens will be quick but not silly.

    As I recall it's one of those courses that's worth sacrificing distance off the tee for being on the fairway because the rough is fairly chunky and difficult to control a ball out of.

    Enjoy.

    Yes - it's very much and underrated Course , the greens are great , some long holes and very good par 3's. I enjoy playing there and try to do 36 there every year. It's a good course

    Great courses, greens are as fast as you like, huge yellow gorse lined fairways on 1 course and wispy grass on the other.

    Played it a few times and was the venue for my infamous 2 off the tee tee shot

    Club down off the tee if you're too wild, you'll find bugger all in the gorse.

    Very friendly clubhouse also and good food.

    Very underrated course/s IMO, would be a great meet venue.

    First time I met and played with Mashiniblick, nice memories.

    Played it a few weeks ago with our work Society. Lovely course, very fast greens, so with the current heatwave should be equally fast if not quicker.

    As mentioned, think about your tee shots and club selection. Tight in places but really enjoyable. Was in very good condition - we played the Green in the afternoon, nice, but definitely nowhere near as good as the Red.
