Those who designed and built Richland Park, a 3 star rated course through USEA, were :
Mike Etherington-Smith, Bert Wood and Jay Hambly.
This facility is inspected yearly, and approved yearly and worked on yearly, through USEA officials - to ensure that this course remains CIC*** rated.
So if the Trak at Novice is not acceptable, it wouldn't be there. I assure you - or this facility would not remain rated at the level it is.
