What the club says: From the red markers, the course is 5,374 yards (4,914 metres) with a Standard Scratch Score of 72.

Its tight fairways and smaller greens demand skill and precision from golfers of all levels. Indigenous heather protects much of the rough and great caution is required at many holes. Several holes have elevated tees providing excellent views over much of the course and towards the Irish Sea.

Those holes lying on the flat landward side entice players into error by their misleading air of innocence; while the picturesque adventurous holes lying among the sandhills and the pine woods provide "mental as well as physical" hazards!

Course in good condition for the time of year. Greens had been dressed in preparation for the coming season, so they where a little uneven and difficult to judge the pace.

Hidden GEM

This course is breathtaking, a must play for all keen golfers. A great tester for anyone's golf skills and the course was in excellent condition. Keep your ball on the fairway as there is lots of trouble in the rough and gorse. The fairways and greens are fantastic and every hole you play offers a new surprise, Beautiful giant pine trees and scenery add to the all round experience. The moment you go into the club house there is a very warm welcome and atmosphere, you will be well looked after. I will be back here soon

Great test of golf

Golfshake Team ReviewLoved playing this as a warm up to the main course the next day.
Never played with thick heather as the rough - so punishing. Keep it on the short stuff at all costs! Some really great holes. Will play again. Julie in the office could not be more helpful. Every member on the course and in the clubhouse was soooo friendly.

don't underestimate this course!

Golfshake Team ReviewWith goarse thicker than the main links, this is a must play (aim for what you can see) but don't bite off more than you can chew!!! A must is keeping your ball on the short stuff.

Golfshake Team ReviewWOW!
What a club, what a welcome, what staff..... from Julie on reception, to Tony at the bar to the extremely helpful waitresses and staff including then exceptionally courteous green staff.
The ladies course was great fun and not as easy as you may think..... deadly if you don't follow the shops advice "fairways and greens and only aim for what you can see". Two foot off the fairway and you are in gorse!!!!
Highly recommend the dormy accommodation, breakfast and bar food!

This is what golf is supposed to be like everywhere!

Golfshake Team ReviewWow. Super course. Some gorgeous holes. Favourites were 4th and looking down the 10th off the tee. None of us had seen heather lined fairways before so that got us focused after the first stray drives!!!
The staff are are amazing. Julie Stong on reception couldn't be more friendly and helpful . Can't wait to try the main course later.....the ladies course was a great warmup!

Lovely coastal course in excellent condition - very picturesque in parts. Shorter than most men's courses but very tight at times with lots of heather to catch wayward shots. Wind adds to the difficulty. Accuracy more important then length. Well worth playing.

A true gem. Don't be put off by the short length, it is very tricky. narrow fairways with a trip in the heather usually a lost ball. Some fantastic views off the elevated tees. The greens and fairways are equal to any of the local championship courses and the food and staff excellent.

This is a gem of a course overshadowed by its illustrious neighbours. I would not miss a chance to play it given the opportunity. Its a course that you play, as it offers choice from the tee and does not force you into pulling out the driver.
