Myself and a friend of mine travelled the hour to play this course. We parked in the tight underground car park and made our way up to the first tee via the lift. The view from the first tee is slightly daunting and a great intro to the rest of the course which gets better as you get further into it. We walked and carried our bags which wasn't too difficulty but others may want to get a buggy as soon holes are quite uphill. The course was in immaculate condition and there's some great views from the top.
My only gripe is after the 18th hole we decided to have a drink or two. I ordered a Milkshake and my friend ordered a beer and we sat out on the veranda. The drinks arrived and I commented on how nice the Milkshake tasted. Then the bill arrived, €4.50 for a beer which is fine and expected in such a place but €13 for a Milkshake or as they call it a fruit punch (see pic attached). What a rip off. It left a sour taste as well left (pardon the pun) which was a pity.
