Course Description:

Balley Marrey is a fantasy course set along the east coast of Scotland in the town of Balley Marrey, Scottish Gaelic for “seaside town”. The course is a links style and features three distinct areas as the layout transitions from the middle of town, out to the sandy coastline, and then into the forests at the foot of the highlands. Holes 1, 2, 3, 17, and 18 play alongside the streets and buildings of the town. Holes 4, 5, 6, 11, 12, 13, and 14 play amongst the dunes. Holes 7, 8, 9, and 10 wind there way through the trees at the base of the Scottish Highlands. In its default conditions, the course plays in a typical Scottish morning - rain and fog one minute, sunshine the next with green speeds of 154. Higher speeds are playable, but not typical for this style a course. I'd recommend a moderate southerly wind with firm fairways and greens. Beware that this is an ancient links layout, so expect a few quirks along the way, including blind approaches and carries over out of bounds areas.
