Beautiful course and incredible views

We came up for the weekend from London and from the minute we arrived in the car park, we received a warm welcome from members and staff. The course itself is stunning and I'd be happy to walk it without clubs for the views alone.

What a nice friendly golf club with superb society booking deals. The clubhouse bar was well stocked with drinks and the food excellent (worthy of its food award). The golf course is not long but it is certainly a challenge for any golfer of high or low handicap. The views from the top of the course are absolutely breathtaking making you stop playing golf for a moment and wondering how far out you can actually see. A golf course that will not be forgotten in a hurry.

The Golf Club perched on the roof of the world.

This is an excellent James Braid designed course with fantastic 360 degree views . Not a long course but very tricky with small Greens. The Clubhouse is very welcoming with the steward providing award winning service.

Great course. Although quite short it's a real challenge. Excellsnt layout with some amazing views.. greens are challenging with some very tricky pin positions when I played. Very hospitable club house and good value food.

I found this course a real gem. Previous reviews about sheep fences around the greens must have been very old as there were none and the sheep on the course very rarely were seen. This was one of the friendliest courses I have ever played at, the club steward Brent and his staff could not do enough.

The twilight green fee of £12 is very good value, but eventually you do get fed up of the sheep, especially as the fences around the greens do not always work. On the 10th green I found two sheep for instance.
Apart from the sheep it's a short but hilly course which will test your short game and accuracy. The pick of the holes are the 2nd, 8th and of course the 18th.

Unfortunately during the round one of the members decided to use the 6th fairway as a practice area, whilst I was trying to play the hole; other than that I found the other members good company

The course is very different to anything I have played, e.g. sheep on the fairways. It is a test as practically every green is very narrow and elevated. Most fairways are narrow, which will slope off so it's hard to keep it in the fairway. Some great views around the countryside. The 18th is a very good hole with a couple of hundred foot drop to the fairway, then a dog leg left. Also have to say the staff were extremely friendly.

The spectacular course is let down by the genrally poor condition of the greens, but many courses are similar due to this winters extreme conditions and the dry spring. We can testify to the excellent bacon baps but no decent beer or real ale was a disappointment so no 19th afterwards! Showers were cold hence facilities fair at best.

Fantastic course, played in extreme weather(wind and rain) but to some degree this made playing the course all the more pleasurable, the greens were immaculate and a joy to put on.
Not a very long course but very demanding and tee shots require thinking about placement on nearly every hole, i would recommend a buggy as this course is very hilly.

Every golfer in the world should play this course!!!!
I played this course on a regular basis about 14years ago and have only played it once until the 8th April 2008. I play off 10 and am quite steady, but this course will find any weakness in your game. Admittedly its not the longest course in the world but there is NOT one hole that is straight forward. Taking into consideration it is set across 4 mountain tops you can only begin to imagine the complex layout of the holes. If you are not going over, down or around a mountain, you are playing off the side of one!!
All I can say is you need to play this course before you die.
