Even by country victorian standards,Raywood is only a small village.All the more commendable that it has a golf course at all,and Raywood golf course is very much a village course.In design it has a couple of decent doglegs(6 and 8),a 521m.par 5 (2)and a substantial par 3(5);all these are repeated on the second circuit with only 10 and 12 having alternate tees which reshape the hole.Mostly flat with a ridge across holes 2 and 4,it is not difficult,with very wide fairways lined by a single line of trees. The OOB at 2 and 7 are in play only to a very wild shot. It is an ideal place for a gentle,relaxing hit to relieve the stress of the day or to take the grandchildren for a social hit.Enough of a golf course for them to get to like the game and appreciate its charms;easy for them not to be discouraged by punitive hazards. Best played from July-end Sept.When I visited (in Aug.)I was pleasantly surprised by the conditions;good scrapes and approach areas and fairways good enough not to need preferred lies.On this evidence,a course I would be happy to play again. Only 1 star because only 9 holes but among the most enjoyable 9 hole sand scrape courses I have played.
