This is a lovely course, wicked greens, and nice healthy fairways. Clearly QdL is taking care of this place.
We walked ( electric trolley 20 Euro!!; Manual trolley 6 Euro) , no need for a buggy. Really enjoyed the first nine but in the teens, we got really annoyed by the large numbers of mower, choppers, green works going on. At this part of the course, the tee boxes and greens for different holes are really close together so while there may be no one mowing on your hole as you putt, just next store there could the 4 or 5 machines operating at once!! Not what you want on such a lovely (and expensive) course. This persisted ( from about midday) from hole 12 or so till number 18.
So on return to the clubhouse I politely asked for the manager to discuss this ( I mean who wants to pay these prices and feel like I am in a machine shop when I tee off !). A Mr Claudio 'handled'' me ( or tried) by telling me look unless this is a tournament we do maintenance ( basically ''tough luck'').
We explained to him that yes we understand well about golf courses needing maintenance ( we are golfers!) but 5 or 6 machines right next to us , come on.....he refused to listen (or apologise), just insisted his point !!
Oh well, we wont go again, nice course, shame about the management and their attitude to their 100 EURO per round plus customers. Fortunately I can spend 100EURO at other courses and not have to listen to either lectures about golf courses needing maintenance or 5 machines whipping away as I am trying to save par on a really difficult green.
Bye Bye Laranchal
