Shame about the wind!

The course was in great condition for this time of year. Loved the last 5 holes over the road with sea views all the way around.
Greens were outstanding despite recent bad weather.
A windy start made it a challenge but that doesn’t detract from a great golf course that we will definitely play again soon.

The course was in excellent condition, well worth the money. Stunning views and the wind makes some holes very difficult but still fun. Definately give this a go.

Great course

Really well kept course in a stunning location, particularly at times. Fast greens and a few well placed hazards to avoid. Course layout was a bit confusing at times and very tight fairways but it certainly didn't spoil the day or cause any real issue.

Great course and views but ensure your golf insurance is in place

The holes themselves are great and generally are forgiving off the tee but challenging on the greens. Course was in great condition but could do with some next tee signage in places (4th an example). Views are amazing, especially at both the top and bottom of the course. Most courses involve some sort of trade off and here it is the layout. The reality is the land is not big enough for 18 holes. This results in some holes crossing and on occasions some truely dangerous tee positions (3rd/6th tees and 16th green/17th tee). For this average golfer this is very off putting. Some tee's are also positioned so you are driving over the previous green which helps add to hold ups around the course. In summary a course that would be near the top of my list ..... on a quiet day!

Phil

Myself and friend played this course .. I am not the most confident on a course as haven’t played many but my friend had played many and both were shocked at how tight and dangerous the course felt .. people teeing off straight ahead of you, also behind you, course would possibly be better if was made into a 9 hole, course condition was brilliant fast greens but layout was sorry to say terrible.

Lovely course, would recommend

First time playing and really enjoyed the course. The course conditions were perfect and greens were well maintained.

The course strikes a nice balance, the fairways are wide and forgiving (little chance of a lost ball), however there a number of blind tee shots and approaches to small greens providing the right level of challenge.

The last 5 holes are incredible and look out to the ocean. I'd happily play this course again.

Great day

Paid £24 each on golf now ap. Throughly enjoyed our day. The greens were obviously under maintenance but didn't reduce our enjoyment. Scored 83 wasn't too bad. Beautiful scenery and well laid out. Shortish course but challenging. Hidden gem, we'll be back.

Windy Challenge

Great course with some quirky holes. Wind can be a challenge but its on the coast so it is to be expected. Fantastic views of the coast from the course. Both staff and members made me feel very welcome. Definitely will play again.
