Not bad. Nice greens.

Nice little course, tight enough and challenging in places. Undulating to hilly going. Really tough opening hole. 2nd set of tee boxes change the holes enough to alter them.

Fantastic course for a nine hole

Really enjoyed playing the course although it does undulate on some of the fairways. Greens were in fantastic condition and the staff made me feel very welcome

A great course. Only played 9 holes but enjoyed every minute. Very well maintained, especially the greens. Also, everyone we met was very friendly & helpful. Will definitely play here again when in the area.
