“Nice well kept course”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

Depending on the weather,this is can at times due to the wind be very challenging tough course,but this adds excitement to your game,you have a good selections of pars what every your ability and the 13th hole is just a wonder to play,I'd recommend just taking a putter and a wood down to the green,the wood is for the next hole,believe me,you won't want to be taking your golf bag down with you,nice walk down to hole but oh boy,you'll notice how steep it is walking back up to the 14th.(yeah and always make sure you have lots of spare golf balls for 13th)
You can hire buggies if you prefer not to walk around the course and I would recommend ringing for a tee off time and checking there are no competitions on to guarantee a game.
The club house has a nice size locker room and a small golf shop,staff always seem friendly and there is a bar and you can get something nice and warm to eat.
This is a nice and basic course compared to some in the area,but,you'll never have the same game twice around this fantastic course,the views of the coast line are beautiful and capture the magic of playing here.
My Only issue is,the fairways are a little to wide with not enough sand bunkers or rough run off areas to challenge,but apart from that,nice course

Reviewed 30 July 2013

“What a view from the clifftops,”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

This course was amazing, the 13th hole(Clivet) Scary par three, hit from the top of a clifftop to the green, if you are short you lose your ball to the beach(100ft Drop) if you are big, lose your ball to the sea, WOW!
