Pleasant surprise

Due to bad weather the course we were due to play was closed. After a quick ring round we were lucky to be offered a tee time as visitors early Sunday morning. Great course. The views were stunning with a nice mix of holes. Be prepared for a long walk up & down hills.

Fantastic Views

A challenging course which we have played a couple of times before. Course was in good condition and there are some stunning holes with background surrounding countryside. Best played in calm conditions unless you are an extreme golfer but the back 9 whilst hilly, are well worth the extra effort.

A little gem

We played on a cloudy day with high humidity and outbreaks of strong sun. Would recommend a buggy for the older players. What a beautiful course it is. Great fairways and fantastic greens. Challenging greens too with a fast and true roll. Everyone we spoke to was cery welcoming and friendly. Highly recommend

Friendly welcome by all at the at the club, nice breakfast as well. Played this course on a fairly breezy day which made some holes quite tough. Course in decent condition, greens true if a little slow. Certainly a good walk around with some ups and downs. Well worth a go as great value.
