Nice course in beautiful setting. Some challenging holes, particularly the 18th hole. Short distance holes so great for golfers at all abilities. Can play the full 18th hole or the 18 hole pitch and putt course.

Enjoyable well kept course.

Enjoyable links course. Greens were OK considering how much rain there has been, although could do with a shorter cut. A nice tidy course although price was on the higher side considering its low season. Will definitely come again though.

Excellent setting and interesting course. Ideal if you're on holiday in the area as green fee includes hire of half set of clubs

This is a very good par 3 course, which can be demanding when the wind gets up (hole 5 comes to mind), which during the winter months can be quite often. The greens are well kept and the tweaking of the course over the past few years has enhanced its playability. The greens are kept in very good conditions and give you a chance to improve your score with the putter.

The 18th hole is testing, even though it is only 109 yards long, the perception from the tee is that it is longer.

A practice area for warming up would be ideal but there is limited room for this and it is understandable that it would be difficult to include. The facilities are fair but the bar is not always open during the winter which is a bit disappointing when you want to warm up after a cold and wet round. They have a limited shop on site and the staff are extremely welcoming and polite.

On the whole though I would thoroughly recommend this course for anyone either starting out or who wants to sharpen up their short game.

A very good par 3 course. It has many challenging holes which demand good good strategy to get those rare birdie opportunaties
The courses upkeep is very good and is very beginner friendly due to no handicap or dress code requirements.
A great little golf course with outstanding views and a bit tricky in the wind.
