Came here for the England Golf senior series final. Played the Bracken twice. It's OK, neither 'great' nor 'epic'. 1st 9 more interesting than 2nd. Can't comment regarding the Hotchkin, but Bracken is ho hum.

This is a must for any golfer. For the beginning of April the course was in extremely good condition, fairways dry and very few divots. Beware all the bunkers and plot your way round.
