I went with seven friends for a a few days of golf and we played two courses. This was the first and having left the somewhat chilly Wales behind me... More

We really enjoyed our visit here. It's very much geared towards the club golfer. No problem finding balls. The greens had a touch of disease for which we were compensated, buggies were reduced from 40 euro to 20 euro which was great. Disease was barely noticeable and did not affect the playing surface at all. Great day out, lovely staff.

We played in february and the course was in superb condition . A coffee on the... More

I love the Old Course, a nice traditional place with a mature aspect to the golf course. A buggy is sent to meet you in the car park to whisk you and your bags to the buggy area. Reception is staffed by really friendly ladies (not like the young misery at Victoria!) who deliver great service. There is a well... More

Had the best round during our stay , the course was in great condition and they only let you tee off every 10 mins so minimal queuing , 4 hrs was acceptable

Just wanted to make sure people understand the standard of the greens has improved since reviews written over the last couple of months. Played last week and although not perfection they were generally good. Course is an absolute gem so don't let greens worry you. The experience makes up for it.

Played there many times but last week in brilliant sunshine the course was at its very best. All the staff were so friendly and attentive. Our party of eight just loved everything about it. Mike Vaudin. The Judge. Guernsey.
