Great course with very fast and well maintained greens. Fairways are a bit bare due to the amount of golf played on the course.

You get a great welcome at the pro-shop by 2 very helpful lads, and it goes down from there. Changing room is worn out, and only 3 m square!!!! No course maps for yardages, met by the" mozzie" sprayers trying to control the residents. Got...More

Golf was good albeit slow at 4.5hrs. Annoyed that no drinks cart came around and ran out of water in sweltering 32deg!

A truly magnificent golf track. Beautiful as well. Condition is always a concern as the company that owns this course do not seem to appreciate the merits of keeping this course in good condition. Greens are good though. We played this course twice this week...More

Played this course numerous times. Scenery still srunning. Course is getting tired. Greens are not as good as they used to be. Major downside, 6 hour rounds and a Marshall more interested in who has ordered a Tuna sandwich than getting it moving. Won't go...More
