With not so many Harvest themed courses released by now, I was really looking forward to play Dainton Park
. I did not regret it!
This design by Dean Lowdon does not have (m)any outstanding elements, and does not have much "bling-bling". But what it certainly has is a fantastic course design with very interesting hole layouts, and this makes the courses very fun & challenging to play.
The fairways are quiet narrow, and its bunkers are placed extraordinary well. The (medium-fast) greens are fair, but not too easy. So are the pin positions.
Really... this course does not have much to complain about. It has a little bit of everything! The only thing I'd like to notice is that on the "dummy tee boxes", there have been no markers or anything. I'm just curious if this was intended by the designer, or if he has just forgotten to do that. But honestly, that's just a minor point of critisism (if at all).
Summary: Dainton Park is a fantastic course in it's own way (as described). I'd be not suprised if we see this creation in Autumn (at the latest) on any of the Tours!
