    We arrived at the golf club in bright sunshine and met with a fairly strong wind, classic links weather. We were looking forward to playing this classic links course. Our visit to the pro shop was the first note of quality, an excellent pro shop with a great range of golf equipment and clothing. The Pro Andrew was also a breathe of fresh air, very welcoming, informative and made you feel like he was happy to have you visit.

    The course opens with a great par 4, followed by a tricky little par 3 where if the green is missed you will have a tricky up and down to save par. The prevailing winds make holes 5 and 8, both par 4's and extremely tough, a struggle for even the big hitters to reach in regulation. I n contrast the downwind par 5's are reachable with two good shots and offer good birdie chances. There are two stunning par 3's on the back nine and the finish is a well known card wrecker! Holes 16,17 and 18 are all tight off the tee and require accurate approach shots for any chance of making par. Overall the course offers a great variety of holes, tricky greens and well placed bunkers throughout. The ground was unbelievably dry especially when you consider the course had been immersed in some heavy floods not long ago!

    The greens were superb and had great pace and a true roll. It would be very difficult to pick fault with this impressive links course. The clubhouse is excellent and has great views from the upstairs spike bar and the main room, sitting perched above the 18th green looking out to the Great Orme in the distance across the Irish Sea. The food was excellent and good value, much like everything else at this venue, FIRST CLASS!

    Played here as part of a society at the end of January. Was looking forward to it as it had been a championship course some years ago but was sceptical having read some recent reviews and the club response. The course itself was okay but lacks real definition. As other reviewers have commented the greens need work as a number of them on the back few holes - very noticeable from 14 onwards have patches of weed growth in them. Quite a few greenside bunkers also have weed growth and the paths throughout the course are very untidy. Overall through I enjoyed the course for winter as it is quite open and forgiving with the exception of the last 2 holes and you came off the course as clean as you went on.

    Hi Dave, Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback and I am pleased you enjoyed our winter course apart from a few issues on tidiness which I apologise for. We are currently in the middle of our winter maintenance programme and we are concentrating on rivetting a high number of bunker faces. Once this is completed we will move onto path maintenance and the general tidying of other bunkers which will be completed by the end of March. This work is essential to ensure the course is in prime condition for the main playing season for our visitors, members and any championships we are hosting. Last year we hosted the Welsh Ladies Open Strokeplay and the Ladies and Girls Home Internationals and we have also been selected to host the prestigious Curtis Cup in 2020. With regard to the greens from 14 onwards I have inspected these this morning with the Head Greenkeeper and apart from the small patch on the 14th, which will be treated this week, there are no weeds on any of our other greens. We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future when I am sure you will find the course in tip-top shape. Kind regards Chris Chance Secretary/Manager

    Our break(s) just before and after Christmas had already taken in Aberdovey, Royal St. Davids and Prestatyn and as the weather had been so mild we were looking forward to the last leg at Conwy.
    I have played Conwy on numerous times and last played it during 2012 after it hosted the European Seniors event. The playing conditions in December were excellent with just a light wind and all of our party played well which was probably down to playing off the forward winter tees!. However, we all came away feeling disappointed with the condition of the course. I noticed on the 3rd fairway some damage and thought it must be down to rabbits but on most of the front nine fairways it is very pronounced and to such a degree that on some fairways you run the risk of turning your ankle if you tread in one. Also noticeable is that many of the bunkers are ground under repair which is okay for the time of the year as they have been recently reworked and look to be okay. A number of greenside bunkers are not in very good condition though with a number of the faces consisting of weeds and sadly it has lost a number of bunkers from what i remember and this has made a few holes look bland and uninteresting. There was also some work in progress which I can only think is to reduce the amount of gorse on the course. This, added to removing most of the rough has left the course looking much less attractive with the front nine looking like a flat field as there is little definition between a number of the holes.
    Whist the greens (all were still the main summer greens) played quite true for winter many of them are now a mixture of different types of grass and a closely mown moss like growth. I think the 14th was where it was most pronounced and from the large patches it must have been like this since the summer but the moss like growth was noticeable on at least a third of the greens.
    Most of the edges of the paths are showing weed growth and this adds to the overall unkempt and untidy look to the whole course.
    On the positive side it has very good practice facilities although the practice ball dispenser was out of action when we were there. The chipping area and putting green were good and there is a practice net available. There are still a couple of excellent holes such as the 17th and the 360 degree view from the 8th tee is fantastic. The clubhouse is very good and the staff were pleasant and friendly, a few of us ate in the restaurant and the food and service was very good.

    My lasting memory from this visit is that the course has deteriorated a lot since 2012 and although it is winter many of the things i noticed look to be as a result of a prolonged lack of maintenance. The green fees are normally on the higher side for a course in the area which was okay when the course was in good condition but I can't say I will be rushing back soon which is a shame as it was as good as any north wales course a few years ago.

    Many thanks for taking the time to send us your feedback. We are in the middle of our winter maintenance programme and our main priority is to complete some major renovation of some of our bunkers. This mainly involves riveting the bunker faces and some re-shaping. Prior to this renovation which started last winter we are also reviewing whether certain bunkers are still required. This has only led to the removal of one fairway bunker and one greenside bunker. We have also cleared some large areas of gorse this winter which have grown out of control over a long period. The areas where gorse has been removed will be re-seeded in the spring and smaller individual gorse bushes will return over time. Once this major work has taken place general maintenance will take place such as weeding/repairing of non-renovated bunker faces and paths in readiness for the spring. In a recent STRI report (August 2016) the following comments were made about our greens: “The general condition and performance of green turf is excellent. Performance data are good and sward composition remains strong in most cases with bents and fescues blending well with Poa annua.” “As you will see Conwy’s greens compare very favourably with those on Open Venue Clubs in most areas.” Whilst the odd green may have some very small weed patches, which will be treated within our winter programme, I can confirm that there is no moss on any of our greens. I am sorry you did not enjoy your visit this time however it is vital we undertake winter maintenance to ensure the course delivers excellent conditions for the main playing season.

    Was so looking forward to our return here having last played here three years ago. We played just after new year and the weather was outstanding. I am sorry to say but the course was not. The greens were the normal summer ones but many of them are now a mixture of various grasses and weed growth that has all been closely mown. Many of the greenside bunkers have weed growth in their faces so look awful. A number of the fairways on the front nine have holes in from some form of burrowing animal. It looks as if there has been extensive rough and gorse removal on the front nine which had taken away some of the character and it now looks like one big flat field. Could do with some mounds and long grass where the gorse once was in my view. Most of the paths on the course are untidy. Whilst the layout is still the same with a good balance of holes. Holes 5 to 9 are a difficult stretch and it has a tough last two holes to finish though overall the course is poorly maintained. However, it will remain a challenge as it us normally played in a good breeze.
    On the positive side it has good practice facilities, a good clubhouse and friendly staff in the Proshop.

    Played this course today (14/3/16) and couldn't have been happier with what we got. The course was fantastic! The tee's, the fairways, the greens were spot on and a credit to the green keeping staff!...no plugged balls and soggy feet at the end of the day made a nice change too. Some of the stroke indexing of the holes were slightly questionable but that just made it more interesting...all in all, great day, great value and we will definitely be returning.

    Hi, Many thanks for giving us some valued feedback. I am really pleased you enjoyed your day and I will pass on your comments re the Course to our greens team. With regard to the stroke indexes, this may have been due to a different wind direction. Our prevailing wind is south-westerly however at this time of the year we can get more northerly winds. This can have the effect of make the lower stroke indexes easier and the higher stroke indexes harder. We look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

    Travelled from Liverpool to play conwy golf club 14th March.
    Well worth the trip.
    Was greeted with a warm welcome in the pro shop and bar.
    The course was in great condition, its nice to see your ball rolling down the fairway this time of year.
    you could bounce the ball upto the hole ( instead of just plugging like many courses). Playing on full tees and greens makes a huge difference. The greens were in excellent nic.
    Great day out.

    Absolutely Cracking Course and in tip top condition. Lots of tempting holes, but also lots of trees and carefully placed bunkers / hazards to ensure that the balance of risk and reward is 'fair' but just be very wary of the wind. It can catch everyone out. The staff are good company and very welcoming. Lets hope this is the Northern Artisan venue for 2017.

    For my first ever round of golf, I dont think i cudve played at a better course. The location is perfect, whether your playing facing the sea, or the hillsides, playing each hole had its own unique feel. I played with the Royal Oak Society, and despite finishing a distant last (again, it was my first round) im hooked!! An the course played a big part in that. Looking forward to playing there again and getting a score that does the course justice.

    Really enjoyable course set in fantastic surroundings. Hard going at times, especially from holes 5 to 9 with some long par fours to test even the best of society golfers, but overall a very fair challenge. I guess it would be a much tougher course with the wind blowing but we got lucky on that front. Excellent practice facilities to tune up before the round.

    There’s nothing better than waking up to clear blue skies and knowing that in about 3 hours time you will be teeing off at Conwy, and that's exactly what we got on Sunday morning. All the way down the A55 the weather just got better and better and you could just feel that this was going to be a great day. And we also knew that this was going to be the day that our new society polo shirts, provided by teeuplo, were going to see the light of day!

    A bit of advice for everyone, if you’re planning a visit to Conwy, check the course out on teeuplo before you go. Not only is there a good selection of reviews but there is also a real camera flyover of the course to give you an idea of what you will be up against.

    Some golf courses just feel different, like you’re somewhere a bit special. Conwy is one of those places. They actually started showing their class three weeks before our visit when they posted out to us a very pleasant letter detailing our upcoming visit and who to speak to for various issues we may have on the day, along with some scorecards, brochures and a free course planner!

    Also included in the letter are details on how to download the Conwy Golf Club mobile phone App. This is the first time I’ve heard of this at any golf course and it’s nothing short of brilliant! You can make tee bookings and payments on it, review scorecards, use it as a GPS rangefinder for use while you’re playing with distances to front, middle and back of the green, but best of all is a detailed flyover of each hole.

    As you pull in to the car park you have to admire the imposing clubhouse building, it has the air of a small castle about it.

    We headed upstairs to tuck into our breakfast and take in the surroundings of this rather inspiring place. This is rumoured to be the very spot that golf was first played in Wales, on the land that the current course is built on. Just reading some of the many articles that adorn the walls of this building will tell you that your in a place steeped in history. Many high profile tournaments have taken place here over the years, including the seniors Ryder Cup.

    You can really get warmed up here. There is a manicured 18 hole putting green, a driving range, a chipping area and a practice pot bunker that's played to another putting green!

    As we sat having breakfast you have the luxury of looking out of the large clubhouse windows and seeing the course unfold before your very eyes, mainly due to the lack of trees and flat terrain. Beyond that is the bay where many very expensive looking boats trundle up and down, and the whole lot is surrounded by high cliffs and hills. A truly magnificent site.

    Between leaving the clubhouse, paying the pro and reaching the first tee the only slight down-point of the day occurred. The pro didn't tell us that we should be playing from the green tee markers. You get a card that says “winter green card” and that's all the info your given. What happened was that we all played from the yellows, as a society should, until the 11th when a member pointed out the mistake to us. This needs to be made clearer, really just with the pro telling people when they pay up. But not a major issue by any stretch and certainly nothing that affected our enjoyment of the course.

    Noticeable today was the lack of elements, no wind, no rain, just perfection. Some say a links course just isn't the same unless you play it in high winds, having done both I much preferred it in glorious sunshine!

    We were playing a yellow ball competition today, for those who are unfamiliar each group gets one yellow ball that is passed around the group hole by hole. Out of the groups that bring it back, the group with the highest scoring yellow ball (stable ford points) wins the team comp for the day. Rules are simple, if you lose it its gone and if it goes OOB its gone. There is no replacement. Sounds easy, but you don't half feel it when your teeing up the yellow ball yourself, desperate not to blow it for your team! It adds a great side issue to the main comp and keeps the day going for the entire 18 holes for every player. You could tell who the really gutsy players were, the ones who volunteered to play it off the first tee, with the whole group watching and OOB tight all the way up the right hand side. Thankfully, they all survived!

    The first is a nice straight hole played slightly uphill towards the bay. This is followed by a cracking short par 3 where you have to play over or through dunes left and right to a green surrounded by pot bunkers. No room for errors on this one! The next few holes are played right alongside the bay, and this is the place for you if you enjoy looking at very expensive boats. The 7th hole is a tough one, a 450 yard par 4 played uphill and into the wind (on a windy day). It’s a hole that feels like a par 5.

    Scoring opportunity's present themselves at the turn as the 9th and 10th are both 500 yard par 5's that are shortened with a good bit of run if you get a good drive away.

    The front 9 of the course seems quite open due to the lack of plant life. This changes completely on the back 9 which is heavily protected by extremely prickly yellow gorse bushes.

    The 12th was used as the longest drive hole, won by Captain Tommy with a beauty that was sat perfectly in the middle of the fairway between two pot bunkers. The 13th was the only bad hole on the course. It a mid-length par 3 but it seems to have been damaged by the elements. The length of the hole between the tee box and the green was just sand and there was a large strip of earth that ran the length of the green where the grass had died.

    The 15th hole, a short par 3 but semi-blind, was our nearest the pin hole and this was also won by captain supreme Tommy, landing one within 4 feet and followed it up with a birdie to boot!

    The closing 3 holes at Conwy are highly accepted as 3 of the toughest closing holes in all of Wales. The fairways are surrounded on both sides by head high, thick, ball swallowing gorse. You cant make a mistake here, judge any of your shots wrong and you will either land in or roll into the gorse and you ball is gone forever. Both myself and Neil had been impeccable off the tee all day and not lost a ball between us, and managed to lose 2 each on the last 2 holes!

    The 18th is played slightly downhill towards the clubhouse where you can try and pull off a glory putt with your group watching on from the clubhouse.
    Worth mentioning at this point is the outstanding condition the course was in for the time of year. Its always a welcome treat to play off grass tee boxes and full greens in March. Fast greens, tight fairways and fluffy bunkers. You could be fooled for thinking you were playing in August! The rough was not as bad as it could be, not too long and it gave you half a chance if you strayed off line. The bunkers are a real hazard on this course. They are placed just off the fairways right in driving range and they really do gobble up even the slightest of wayward drives. They got 4 of my good ones and there's no escape, if you go in one your only option is a sand wedge back on to the fairway. And the greenside bunkers are just a bad. Deep, small and a nightmare to get out of.

    Having nursed the yellow ball round for 18 holes, we were surprised to find that 3 had made it back home! The winning score with the yellow ball was 27 points by group 2.

    Runner up on the day, scoring an incredible 11 points on the last 3 holes (as we have already said, 3 of the toughest closing holes in the entire country ) with 30 points was our Vice Captain Big Andy Betton.

    Testament to the difficulty of this course was the fact that nobody made par. There were some solid 29's and 30's, but the winner on the day with 32 points was the ever consistent Nick Lott. Well done Nick!

    Everyone was buzzing with the whole Conwy experience in the clubhouse after the game. Its rare that I visit a course that I would gladly join as a member and play every day, but Conwy is one that I would! It can get a little bit pricey in the summer, which is why playing in March for £33 is ideal for societies like ours.

    It’s no exaggeration to say that this is a close to an Open Championship type links that many people will ever get to play. And it’s not just the course, its the whole experience at Conwy. From the minute you make the booking you’re treated like a member. How many other clubs can honestly say that about themselves?

    Conwy can!

    A response from Conwy Golf Club

    Hi, This has got to be the most comprehensive review I have ever seen about Conwy. Thank you very much for taking the time to complete a review and particularly in the detail you have. If you are not a journalist or writer I think you may have missed your vocation! It is really pleasing when players enjoy the whole experience from the history to the Clubhouse from the practice facilities to the actual course. Sorry about the mix up re the tee markers. It is on the card however the proshop should have pointed it out and our signage on the first tee could be better. I have only played a yellow ball competition once and it was not explained as well as you have done in the review. So thanks for that. Your scores were not unusual and our Saturday competitions often reflect similar scores and we play here every week! Your details regarding the course and particular holes are also very helpful and I am pleased you found the free GPS mobile phone app useful.

    An excellent links course played in fantastic weather for the time of year, great views of anglesey and puffin island in the distance. I found the front nine a little easier than the homeward nine which is quite tight and lined with heavy gorse bushes, my advice is to club down a little and keep the ball in play, use your handicap to your advantage on this one. The greens were well presented and rolled nice and true but were a bit inconsistent pace wise. As already mentioned by a few of my fellow society members we automatically played off the yellow tees only to find out on the 11th that we should have been on the green winter tees, although we later realised that it was actually printed on the bottom of the card it wasn't made clear to us by the pro before we teed off, maybe something that could be considered for future visitors. We were made very welcome however on the course and in the clubhouse. Would have liked to hit a few balls at the practice range before we teed off but on arrival found out that it wasn't open until April so if you are playing here yourself in the winter time get your warm up in elsewhere. There a couple of tee boxes that aim towards more than one fairway here in particular the 4th and 10th holes share a tee so make sure you're playing towards the right fairway before you hit a screamer only to realise seconds later that you've left yourself a long second. All in all I can honestly say that I enjoyed this course more than any I've played in a while and will defenitely return. I'm sure the sunshine and light winds helped me to form a positive opinion of the place but a great day out, can't wait to play it again!

    Hi Armyboy, Thanks for taking the time to give us some feedback. Your tips are also very helpful for anyone who reads your review. Our practice ground is open to play shots with your own balls but unfortunately it does not open as a true driving range until the ground is dry enough for us to pick up the balls. There is a net available and also plenty of chipping and putting practice areas. Please see comments below re the tee markers. I am really pleased you enjoyed your day and hopefully we will see you again soon. Kind regards Chris Secretary/Manager

    My most enjoyable links course to date!! We got lucky with such a warm sunny day when you see how bad the weather is this weekend. Great layout with nice views from around the course. I only have good words to say about the course and the clubhouse. Maybe the breakfast sandwiches where a little pricey compared to other courses. Only negative was the lack of information from the pro regarding which tees to use. As we approached the 11th we where informed we was using the wrong ones. There was a society stood on the 1st tee and one lad came over to ask us which tees to use and they hadn't been told either. Apart from that it was a thoroughly enjoyable day. The locals are very lucky to have this great course on their doorstep. Congratulations to Nik on a brilliant score of 32 points on a tough course, very good score mate.

    Hi Dave, Thanks for taking the time to give us some feedback. I am really pleased you enjoyed your day. I will pass your comments re the bacon sandwich to our caterer. With regard to the playing tee the card does say Winter Green Tee however this should have been pointed out to you by the Pro and our signage on the first tee could be improved. Thanks again for the feedback and hopefully we will see you again soon. Kind regards Chris Secretary/Manager

    Conditions could not have been better hardly a cloud in the sky and not and ounce of wind which for a Lynx course is unheard of ! The one thing that let us down on the day was getting to the 11th tee and finding out we were playing off the wrong tee boxes but finding out the whole society had done the same thing seemed to make for a talking point back at the club house,anyway as for the course itself absolutely stunning a credit to the club,not that it was easy to play you had to keep your concentration if your ball strayed into the rough although didn't look much seemed to swallow your ball without a trace and if you managed to get on the green you either rolled Into bunkers or left yourself a long putt adding a few extra shots to your score . My advice is to download the app they have giving you a video guided tour of each hole with step by step instructions to each hole (very clever stuff) this course is a must for any golfer

    A few players I know had played Conwy before and none had said a bad word. However having never played there before myself, I couldn`t really gauge how accurate their reports where.

    The course was fantastic. If you kept the ball in play you got good typical links run on your ball. However if you strayed into the rough it was easy enough to find your ball. The front 9 is more open than the back 9 but don`t think that makes the back 9 unplayable - just a different feel about the course. The greens were quickish but because it was March, they just had that tiny bobble to them. That is absolutely not a criticism as any other course at this time of the year would be nowhere near this standard, its merely a statement of fact.

    Our one criticism was the fact that although we were told winter rules were in play, no one specifically said that there were green tee markers. The card said "winter green card" or something like that but it was not explicit. We`ve never played at a course that`s done that before so we all played off yellow tees until the 10th when a member corrected us. It didn`t detract from our day but maybe other visiting societies/non-members should be told.

    Finally the club hospitality was good. Breakfast sorted quickly (kitchen opened at 9am) and bar staff friendly afterwards.

    All in all a course anyone should visit. Hopefully I will be back soon.

    This is truly a special golf course. Pick your day wisely though because if the wind is up then you will struggle.
    The greens are lovely and true so there will be no excuses for not putting it stiff. The fairways are smooth and firm which makes it easy to get your ball evelated.
    All in all its a must visit course.

    Played Friday and course was dry as a summers day! Greens were running fast and true.

    I love this course, classic links with a nice layout, some of the par 4's were playing really long in the wind.

    Food in the clubhouse is great value and a super view of the 18th. My home course gets pretty wet during the Winter so I will be back again soon.

    I echo everything that has been said in Teeuplo's official review! Great course presented in great condition. Considering the tournament was cancelled on day 1 due to horrendous rain, the course drained remarkably well for the last two days of the tournament.

    It is no wonder the course has held so many prestigious championships - I would recommend anybody of any ability to play this if given the chance! Holes 16, 17 & 18 are a very tight finish, making it difficult if you have a good score!

    Hi Dominic, Thanks for taking the time to give us some feedback. I am glad you enjoyed playing at Conwy in the Welsh Open Amateur Strokeplay event. Well done on making the cut and finishing in a very respectable 32nd out of 144 competitors. Feedback is always welcome but it is especially pleasing to hear positive comments from golfers of your standard. Good luck with the rest of your season.

    Our golf society www.bunkersgolfsociety.com visited Llandudno as part of a 3 day trip in March 2013. We played Conwy on day 2 of the visit and were met with true links style golf and typical links weather.

    The club house on arrival is impressive and you know you are at a "proper golf club" from the very start. On entering we wanted a cup of coffe and maybe a bite to eat, and with 11am tee off times we expected that wouldn`t be a problem. However, there was only a coffee machine available and this was a bit of a let down. Instead, we headed out onto the putting green, chipping area and practice ground - which were great facilities and on reflection of the hole days golf were a true reflection of the speed of the course [which often isn`t the case with putting/chipping greens]

    The practice area is literally right "on top" of the 18th green, with a warning to be silent for finishing golfers. Which is a bit unusual, but wasn`t a problem. However, the beauty of this is that you can see the speed of the green in comparison to how your own ball is rolling and better still you can enjoy the stunning views of Conwy Bay and The River Conwy and the sprawling hills scenary are just beautiful.

    Our day started off sunning and remained dry throughout, but the wind went from acceptable to brutal and made it a real test of golf. Nevertheless, it was highly enjoyable and was a real Links experience.

    The course played very long in some places, and with the ball diverting up to 50 yards left or right with the wind, it required a lot of concentration and course management and a range of golf shots you wouldn`t use too often on any other type of courses.

    The greens were quite simply stunning. Smooth and true and when you set it off on the line you intended, it stuck to it. Meaning you could build confidence with your putting stroke and really attack the holes. The course was kept in fantastic condition and was reasonably open, so that if you went off the tight fairways into the light rough, you weren`t overly punished - as can often be the way on links courses. There was some horrific gorse bushes to avoid and if you went anywhere near them it was a case of taking a drop and learning from the harsh lesson - but it kept you on your toes when planning shots.

    Due to the horrific weather Conwy had experienced earlier in 2014, it was a wonder the course was in any kind of condition that would be condusive to good golf - but it was better than we could have hoped and other than a few bunkers being G.U.R due to water, the course played fabulously.

    The only criticism of 18 holes would be that there wasn`t many that stuck in the memory at the end of the day. No real signature holes with memorable use of the land or clever course design. However, links courses are often like this and although not a criticism it was just an observation. That said, it was an instant favourite with all 24 of our players and despite our faces taking a battering from the wind everyone was able to smile as we reflected on the golf in the spike bar [which was then open] after the round.

    Thanks for taking the time to give us your feedback. I am really glad you enjoyed the course and the practice facilities and I hope not too many of you found the gorse bushes. If a party has not pre-booked food we open the catering area at 10am however based on your comments we will review this. I am also pleased you had a great weekend of competitive golf which went down to the last putt. Sounds like a film plot! Please visit us again soon.

    Played here today and read the Teeuplo review via Twitter. Got to agee with everything they said. The course was in top condition and greens were quickest ive played this year. A few of the bunkers were waterlogged but no big deal. Love this place and if youve not played there your missing out on a great links. I will be back a few times this summer, hopefully some warm weather!

    Thanks for your review. Your feedback is much appreciated and the bunker water should be gone very soon. The STRI consultant visited yesterday and he commented that our greens were the firmest he had inspected this year. This was really good news particularly as his visits have included many Open venues. Look forward to your visits in the Summer.

    Played here quite often in the past and always in good condition, this time quite a few holes closed due to floods which is understandable, overall condition a bit scruffy but again probably due to weather, I will be back in the summer.
