First class golf course

Fabulous course in beautiful surroundings always in great condition.
Has become a little crowded in recent weeks due to influx of members from a nearby course which has closed.

Great course

Great course, be prepared for a good walk across the bridge from 1st to 2nd then 8th to 9th, and the walk from 9th to 10th, but its worth it. Stunning course in great condition. Second visit this year and really enjoyed it.

What a gem!

What a course! Not played for at least 15 years and that is way too long. Very good condition, excellent layout and so great to play. Loved it and will be back very soon.

Gem

A gem of a course. Breath taking views on the front 9 only add to the quality of the experience. Lovely undulating fairways can lead you into deep traps that test your ability to escape.
The greens are superb, as is the rest of the course.
Although still excellent, the back 9 doesn't quite live up to the front 9.
A couple of long walks between tees, but it's not a major issue.
The hotel is also fantastic & the staff & food very good.
A 'must' stay & play if in the area

NIce Course worth a visit

Fairways parched but aren't they all at the moment, receptive greens and lots of sand if you're not careful. a good day and well worth the visit

Beautiful location, superb course!

Played this course for the first time and will definitely return. The greens were immaculate and the fairways scorched by the recent heatwave and running very fast but nothing could deter from the pleasure of playing this course.

Beautiful course and worth the visit. But you need to buggy or be fit as its a long walk, especially from the 9th green to the 10th tee.
