    Greens on par 5s tended to be a bit smaller than the rest. When a hole was short than normal the green offered a bit more of a challenge with contour.
    In general, greens were smooth and average speed.
    Fairways were soft and very large divots were not uncommon. Divots tended to break apart which made replacing them difficult.
    Four tee selections for a varying degree of distance. Some were a bit worn but they were generally flat. I only had to move my tee once to provide a flat footing surface.
    A little bit of everything. Par 5s offer challenge by distance alone. The entire set of par 3s have the nicest overall design I've played this year.
    Elevation changes exist throughout the course but nothing extreme.
    A bit pricey for the average golfer.
    Loch March tries to go the extra step by running a shuttle cart between clubhouse and parking lot. A necessary evil as a walk between the two locations would be quite a struggle for most people.
    Loch March can play tough. There's a few tee shots where club selection is crucial. A few creeks cross the fairway and driving these obstacles is extremely difficult.
    I only again stress the beauty and challenge of the par 3s.
    A mixture of beauty and bland.
    You'll play a par 5 that offers long hits with nothing but trees and fence bordering the hole. This could then be followed by a beautifully designed par 3 offering water, retaining walls, and surrounded by bunkers.
    A few elevated tees offer a breathtaking view of a few surrounding holes. Particularly the 16th.
    Seems to be quite a few rangers on the course and all were very pleasant.
    A beverage cart was touring even with our early morning tee off and offered coffee.
    Proshop offers the standard stuff and staff there went through the paces.
    Not an overly large clubhouse but large enough to handle a tournament. Patio has a good location overlooking the 18th.
    Parking lot a bit far from the clubhouse but the clubhouse is build on a hill.
    Directions around the course was easy.
    Most carts paths were paved but beginning to show age.
    I don't understand why Loch March only allows a two day booking. The course wasn't overly busy and I prefer to plan a golf game a week in advance. A two day booking just doesn't cut it.
    It's a good thing I left myself plenty of time to get to the course. I haven't been to Loch March in about 20 years and some road construction in the area made access confusing. I would suggest when acquiring a tee time that golfers be warned to leave some extra cushion time.
