Also known as Superclubs Golf Club, you need to be able to play the game to play here - seems obvious but this course is not for the beginner. It's long! I play off 9 handicap and thoroughly enjoyed it. The fairways and greens are not perfection but they are ok for holiday golf and the charges are very reasonable... More
