What the club says: Established in 1887 it is now a 27 hole set-up with nine relatively new holes as part of the championship course, giving it a different dimension. The course is tough, but is typically what Scottish Links golf is about - large sloping greens, deep bunkers and doglegs. Hosted the British Amateur Championships in June 2001.

Wonderful links course

Played this following weeks of wet weather in this part of the world and the course was in great nick. Greens were really true and it was a real pleasure to play when many other courses are damp bogs currently due to the weather. Also a friendly, unassuming reception in the club house.

Really good

Recovering from hot summer seeding some of the fairways but greens were fantastic.
Some new holes in play but a great layout.

Played for the first time today. Invited to play course by a member. Course in excellent condition despite the poor weather. Only critisism is the long walk between 3rd and 4th hole and between 12th and 13th holes.
