Played this wonderful Golf course. Its a true test of a golfer with courage. Make the shots and you will be rewarded. If your not as adventurous don't take on the big risk shots and enjoy. The greens were on (even when we played it was a very wet spell in December). The Catering in the club was very welcome.... More
