I'll make an early start to this year's thread, after playing at Beaudesert for the first time.
It was a nice country course, that wasn't long, but was very tight. Condition at the moment is pretty good due to the rain, and I'm told that they do have irrigation within 150m of the green to keep things green at other times. I felt that the greens were pretty tricky too. A few of the holes are packed in too tight; I took particular exception to the 11th which had me hitting on a line way too close to the 12th tee.
