Strawberry Hill is not a very long nine hole course in total but does have some long par 3′s. You start with a par 5 that bends slightly left to right, this gives you an opportunity to get off to a good start, then comes the three in a row Par 3′s all over 200 yards!
The first of the par 3′s is probably the best looking from the tee with trees obscuring the view of the green. The par 4′s on this course really do give you a birdie opportunity as they are not very long, but they still require an accurate approach, the 7th in particular has a well guarded green.
Grims Dyke is a pleasant and enjoyable round of golf can be had at this course, the tees and fairways were in great condition for October, the fairways in particular have wonderfully undulations on them which make you think about where to place your tee or approach shot. Then we come to the greens, if you think you have a straight putt on a green then have another look, everything rolls down the slopes. We could not believe the breaks some putts made and how fast the downhill putts were.
