The course has been designed with input from three top architects and shaped using an experienced team, over a number years and therefore has an established feel with greens built to USGA standards.

An extensive drainage network built into the course boasts the newest technology, meaning whatever the weather, the course will be in the condition golfers expect, day to day, season to season.

Super Course Link cliff top style

Great course and a real challenge in the wind. Up hill and down dale this will test every club in your bag and will be a differnet challenge when the wind is up and down.

An early’ish start so not many on the course, which was as normal in excellent condition.
We have played the course a few times and will be playing it a few more before the end of the year.

Played the course 20/04/2018 with golf society (14 players). Lovely welcome, bacon buns and coffee, followed by 18 holes. Course in fantastic condition even though horrendous weather the last two weeks.Fairways in excellent condition, wayward shots are not punished to harshly, apart from water hazards. Excellent greens, all undulating. Brilliant views. Well worth a visit. You wont be disappointed whatever your handicap

Great Course

Always good to play, but particularly when the weather is bad, not many courses in the North East hold up as well, unless it's a Links.
