Not for the faint hearted

You stand on the 1st tee and you realise why this is a championship golf course. No room for error, punishing rough. Don't get too down hearted it gets better by about the 10th. The course was in great condition in particular the greens. Take your camera for some stunning views whilst you are looking for your partners golf ball in some gorse or Heather that covers the course. Great experience.

Natural Golf

This course reminded me of Brora and Machrihanish in that it seemed untouched by humanity. The course is a great links with all of the proper elements. There are a couple of blind drives and a few blind approaches. The green sites are interesting (most notably the 4th with 10 foot slopes on each side) and the presence of the sea is constant. You can play the ball on the ground and the wind is the greatest factor. Finding the correct side of the fairway is essential on most holes.

The only disadvantage is the remote location. It is about 2.5 hours from Liverpool/Manchester. I would still highly recommend it. Play it during the week as green fees for a day ticket are about $70. This is one of the best values I have ever encountered and possible the best.

The course itself provides challenge, especially in a wind. Many holes are best played without seeking the pin. The first has a downslope to a hidden green so allowing the ball to roll helps. The par 5 13th has a crowned green that runs away at the back. The par 3 9th has a slope on the left side that runs down onto the green. There are many other times where knowing the slopes for the approaches helps. All the more reason to play it twice.

If you are a true links lover, then I highly recommend playing here. I stopped on my way up to Scotland. The natural feel is on par with the best Scotland has to offer. It was well worth the detour and the price was unbeatable. They have a restaurant, putting green and all the things you'd want for a day. Plenty of great holes and no bad ones. If you were a member here, you couldn't grow tired of it. Be a member for a day.
