Something different. First hole was so crappy that I thought I'd be playing a goat pasture, but rest of course was excellent, if a little odd. Mundane but well maintained elevated (often very elevated) greens, but the challenge is getting to them. These challenges include: very dramatic changes in elevation, strongly sloped and narrow fairways, ravines, long forced water carries, and more blind shots than any course I've ever played. Course is trickier (and a bit more gimmicky) than most, you will need extra balls. Despite this, the course is striking and will reward precision, control and patience. And it's a serious bargain! Note though that I got the impression the course was changing hands, so rates may change.

Blind shots were that norm today at Claxbranch now renamed Glenrock Golf Course and under new ownership. The course conditions overall were pretty nice, but the layout is almost comical. I recommend playing with someone who has previously played here, because if not expect to lose a ton of golf balls and struggle to locate the next tee box. The greens, although in very good condition, were the slowest I've ever played. To me, the course is best if played as a skills challenge rather than a normal, traditional golf outing. My friends and I have nicknamed this course "The Clown's Mouth" for its similarities to a quirky putt-putt course.
