Played early to avoid the crowds and the heat - my son and i in a buggy and we were done in 3hrs - course was in good nick for summer and the greens held firm. A great day out and well worth it.

I don't often write a bad review but do not waste your money on this golf course. It is terrible and what's worse is that the staff think it's great. Spend an extra few € for somewhere else

Avoid this course at all costs. It's in awful condition in comparison to Gramacho & Pinta which were 100 times better. Also the staff were extremely unhelpful & unprofessional. We had buggies booked before we played and then once we turned up they stated we...More
