I was really looking forward to playing this course, arrived and and saw all the Ping sponsorship and was really excited, the Driving Range was excellent, I got onto the first Tee on the Lakes and I could feel the squishy water under my feet, something I didn't expect to happen, this followed through onto most of the holes. The Greens played fantastic and it was a pleasure to Putt on. Apart from being stuck behind a group for 75% of my round I thought it was very average for a Course I always thought would of been a very high standard of Golf.

Played the Lakes course September 2013. Fair to say its not in good condition at all. Tee boxes not great just OK. Fairways OK again not great and the greens. NOT GOOD soft but poor to putt on. Ball jumped all over the place. Bar prices are way to expensive.

Nice courses and decent food. Greens a bit hit and miss and first cut rough a bit long but still worth a visit

Challenging course for high handicappers, long and with rough which makes it difficult to play your ball if you can even find it. Well maintained throughout, though.

Greens much better than before when I have played but the bunkers and fairways were very poor it seems some money is required on adequate drainage instead of a cafe!

Two 18 holes courses with different layouts. Karsten has plenty of water to keep you on your toes, whilst Thornock is more of a woodland course.
Home of Ping, so good practice facilities, but the course could be maintained better.
good spike bar.
