Reviewed Aug 30 2020

It’s a good 9 hole course if you’re a beginner or need to get in some practice, but like many are saying the greens need work but hey it’s a cheap friendly place where you can most of the time just turn up. However the price although reasonable at a weekend is only a couple of pounds cheaper than porthpean and I know where I’d rather be! Also my garmin approach didn’t pick up anything so I had to guess everything from the tee? Not sure if anyone has had an issue with this?

I play here whenever I visit family in Plymouth. The chap who runs it friendly and welcoming to all so you can encounter beginners and slow play, but it has always been a pleasure to play. Well kept and great views. There are some challenging holes and I've yet to play to my handicap there (18). Worth a look if you are laid back and tolerant of beginners. Enjoy!
