Challenging links course
Haven't played here for almost 30 years so couldn't recall the course layout but staff in Pro shop provided an aerial photo of the course with the holes marked and directional arrows. Course in good condition. Greens cut very short but not all as fast as you think they look. Enjoyed the round and will go back if the price stays about the same.
Things have changed
I used to be a member here around 14 years ago before moving away.
I saw the corse on tee off times and got a group together to play and a lot of work has gone on.
In the winter the corse used to be closed a lot due to poor drainage but this seems to have been / being addressed.
Also many trees /bushes have been removed and cut back giving a more open links feel especially nearer to the sea.
The wind has always played a factor here.
Greens and fairways in good condition.
It has a nice challenging layout but can be a little confusing if you don’t know it , as it’s not always the next tee box that you come to that is for your next fairway.
The only negative remarks from my playing partners is that a lot of the GUR was staked and taped and “ looked like a murder scene “.
And winter tees ....... basically not playing off the tees but fairways or mats neither very level, shame.
Course was in great condition with smooth, quick greens. We played on a very calm day so the course probably played easier than it usually would. We received a warm welcome from everyone we met. Recommended.
