I've only played here once before and was looking forward to having another crack at it. It wasn't in very good nick at all, fairways were patchy, greens were bumpy and in true links fashion the wind blew a hooly which was to be expected....More

A truly fantastic Links Course with a unique club house that is a true step back into golfing history. Every hole presents different challenges exacerbated by wind speed and direction. This is a unique golfing experience not to missed.

Great course. Poor welcome. Awful clubhouse, musty and old. Perhaps the gentry like that. Played other good courses on the area and enjoyed the whole experience much more. Great course let down badly by the clubhouse.

From the moment you make the long drive down towards the beach where the clubhouse is perched you know you're at a classic English links. The pro shop is small but well appointed, the driving range more than adequate with a decent short game area...More
