Have to play this course!
Really good course. Excellent greens. A few holes you have to think about you can't just hit driver! Very hilly but so pretty you forget about it. I will definitely return to this course!
Got stuck behind a large society which we were not told when checking in. After 4 and half hours walked off at the 14th as was painfully slow.
Played on a very cold day in December, lots of parts still frozen, especially lots of greens, impossible to read a putt all day! Although it is the better of the 2 courses some of the holes need reworking as some have very strange hitting angles and approaches.
Over priced and in poor condition
I was thorough disappointed by the state of the course, the green had recently be airated and there was more sand on them than in the bunkers... To test them I hit the same putt three times from bout 5ft and it went three completely different directions.
I thought the layout was hotch potch and where fairways crossed each other they were in poor condition.
nice little course
Never played here before, so was lucky to get paired up with two locals. They helped with knowing where to go on some blind shots. Tricky layout, lots of elevation change, makes for a good walk. One par 4 in particular, only 300 some odd yards, downhill to a landing area of 40-50 yards. Then once you get to your ball, you can't tell where the green is. Well it ended up being straight up a hill that looked like all trees and bushes. Probably an 80-90 yard shot but 40 foot elevation change. Interesting, but need to know how to play it.
Greens were in good shape, rolled true. Staff were great and explained the course well.
Also another course on property, played 9 holes there, more flat and wide open.
