Course was in excellent condition with lovely views of the castle. It was an excellent test of golf. Food at the club house was very good.

“Lovely spot”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

This is a great place to stop for a drink (or meal, although we did not eat) when on a coastal walk. Sit and enjoy the peace and the views over the links towards the dunes. Clean toilets and free wifi complete the deal.

“Great place for lunch when you're on the beach or walking.”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

I last visited here for lunch about 12 years ago when it was excellent and I am pleased to report it still is!
They welcome members of the public to eat so if you're on the beach nearby or walking the coastal path it's very handy for a quick lunch. You can eat inside or if it's warm enough, outside too.They serve sandwiches, soup & cooked meals, have a full bar & a coffee machine & sell the great local ice cream too. Both the service and food were great. Also for people who have to be connected, I notice they have wifi too.
