Pleasant 9-hole course of medium difficulty. Longish 1st two par 4's and then less difficult. Course in good condition with groundsmen on course while we were playing. Booking online with GolfNow will give you extremely good prices at certain times so worth looking.
Nice clubhouse apparently with balcony views. Pro shop there.
Played this course for the first time Friday. Picked a midday tee time on a nice sunny day. Couldn't fault the chap in the shop who took us to the first and explained the layout. However despite reading on the website all greens were in play, the second hole was in fact playing a temporary green which was disappointing. The overall condition of the course was a real let down, despite the good weather, the course was soaked, fairways seemed poor and 'rough' riddled with twigs and leaves. Through 18 holes only saw one chap who I assume was a greenkeeper. Overall layout of the course very boring, seems like a large field with 9 holes squeezed on, best hole in my opinion being the 8th. Would not play here again, even in mid summer and would not recommend.
This is the best 9 hole course I've played. Beautiful views. Some surprising holes which can catch you out. Greens were fast. The only negative thing is that I thought we'd booked 18 holes but in fact it was only 9. There was a ladies competition so we were only allowed to play 9. This was clear on the TeeOffTimes website.
