The course is excellent. Proper links with some tricky holes. Go there and be on your toes.
The staff are super friendly and even made us sandwiches as the kitchen was closed by the time we got back (it took us longer than planned to get around).
One of the courses that everyone should play.

Proper Links Course

A very good course, spoiled by the groundworks being carried out, which will improve the course for the future.

Played 2 rounds here in extremely windy conditions. Each loop was superb and the toughest challenge of golf our group had ever faced! Cannot wait to return.

Really testing courses. If you're a hooker or a slicer, bring lots of balls because if you go off the fairway you'll struggle to find you ball. Excellent facilities with bar and food. The winds can be really troublesome. Typical links course

Prince's is a fantastic golfing facility, with the Shore/Dunes combination being the standout 18, but the Himalayas much improved from two years ago, which was my only previous visit on a day ticket. Course was in exceptional condition, and a perfect setting for our group's Ryder Cup style matches played over 3 days in early April. 20 players with handicaps ranging from 7 to 28, everyone found it to be a fair test, not too long, nor was the rough too brutal. Greens were outstanding.

Only let down was the facilities, and even this I would hope was just a temporary issue - we had real problems with being able to get hot showers in the Lodge! Food was probably average, but nonetheless, I'd still highly recommend staying on site. Great spot to have a couple of beers post-round and discuss the day's play.

Played Shore 9 followed by Dunes 9, which I found very tough. Course condition excellent but green to tee walkways quite worn out (being remedied). £60 for twilight rate a bit steep when clubhouse closes at 7 pm. Unfortunately batteries on both the rented Motacaddies ran out of power and although the proshop brought out a battery the second couldn't be replaced because everyone seemed to ahve gone home and had to be pushed for the last 4 holes.

MUST PLAY

Really enjoyed the course, in spite of the terrible weather. Heavy rains and strong winds meant that we only played 9 holes, but the course was great.

Stunning Coastal Links Course

Yesterday we played the Dunes and Himalayas course on a Society day with Big Shot Golf. The courses were in amazing condition given the time of year and biblical wind and rain we endured throughout our day. Even with the elements trying to savage our games it was still well worth the 250 mile round trip and 4 hours driving. The staff are excellent and with a friendly personal touch where nothing is too much and I very much hope to return in 2021 when hopefully the weather allows us to play at our best. If you are thinking of playing here with friends or an organised day then you won?t do much better!!! 5 ?? ?? ???????s from me ????????

Great Condition

Great golf course and in excellent condition. Enjoy it every time I play there and two days never seem the same with different wind conditions.Golfshake do however need to upgrade the scorecard with the changes to two holes on the Shore course.

First time going down to princes, love playing links golf and it didn't disappoint. Not entirely convinced about the new par 3 but a great experience overall. Will come back to play the third nine another time.

Great course - beautiful setting

Having played Carnoustie not long ago I was keen for some more links golf and this did not disappoint. The greens were in great condition and most of the fairways too with a couple of exceptions. We all favoured the Himalayas but enjoyed all three 9's.
