The pros: Beautiful course, visually stunning. The water is elegantly carved, and you feel at times like you're on a top quality PGA course. Every hole is unique and it is a pleasure to play.
The cons: The fairways aren't bad, but are a little bare in places leaving for some very tight lies where your tee shot really deserved better. You can also tell that it is a holiday venue, as a number of pitch marks remain unrepaired, and very few people seem to fill in their divot marks on the par 3 tee's!
The bits that depend on what you like: It's a short and easy course, bar the odd bit of water here and there you are rarely heavily punished for an errant shot (short tree's, not much out of bounds etc). The bunkers are mostly very shallow as well, so even a beginner can get out without too much pain.

Overall I think it is everything you could dream of as a high handicap player and will allow you a beautiful round of golf without the frustration of scrambling around the tree's on a 440yard par 4 with bunkers as deep as the ocean, but it probably won't challenge enough for the low handicappers. (hence as a mid-high handicapper, I personally enjoy it when I want a more casual round!)

I have been playing this course for a number of years. This week we had to compliment the green staff as they have now got the course up to a very good standard.

Cannot comment on cost as we were here for the weekend on a package deal. Hotel prices for food and drink, which even with 20% discount was expensive.

Before playing the course I spoke with a local resident who advised getting a stroke saver as there are a few blind tee shots. I was also told that there were originally only 9 holes, but a further 9 were added following the purchase of a plot of land next to the course. The added holes are somewhat narrower, and mostly involve quite short par 4's.

Course was in good condition and greens were receptive and true (a little slow because we had rain for most of our round). Some tricky greens (leaning away from the tee/fairway), which would make a second round easier I think, as you know what to expect. Fairways were quite hard, and it was felt this was because run-offs had been built into the course to take water away, but with a hot summer, the water it did receive ran away before the 'higher' ground got wet enough to keep the grass green, or to keep the ground soft enough to take a divot.

The Hotel itself was quite impressive - one of our party described it as being like Hogworts. Never having seen any Harry Potter film I cannot say if he is right!

Despite the Fairways suffering as most courses are with the weather. The greens are in terrific condition.

The rough has been well maintained and the ground staff have done an excellent job.

Facilities are excellent. Driving range, pitching green and putting green ( oh and the Bunkers Bar ) . Are all close to the well equipped pro shop.

Lush course

Found the course well kept with a need to make accurate shots. Many of the holes are short but with sharp doglegs and the need to lay up make it a great challenge. Be prepared to lose balls in the water! Enjoyed the course, pro shop staff warm and friendly, however the Spike Bar was understaffed with one young girl trying to serve, waitress and clear tables who wasn\'t coping. The odd menu was also excessively overpriced.

Lovely course but poor condition

I think it?s probably the poor weather but the course was in poor condition waterlogged and the fairways very sticky so hit it even slightly fat and it?s not going far. Better off in the light rough where there was a bit of grass.
Tee boxes were well forward of the normal places - obviously trying to preserve the tees. This shortened the course a lot.
There were also the dreaded mats on a lot of tees too.
This is expected but if this is the case then the green fees should have been drastically reduced -?10 at most do this was poor value for money.
Putting surface was very good considering.
Expect the clubhouse to be dear. ?3.30 for a basic coffee. ?6.50 for a chicken baguette which was a bit stale.
Don?t let this put you off though as this is a good test with thought needed in every tee. You can?t bkast away with your driver every time.
Lots of water. Bunkers have very little sand but again this was the weather
In a couple of months I would hope it will be back to its best which is an interesting, pretty golf course .
