My Dad (Ex-Pro) and myself (County level) played the champ course and found the front 9 fairly simple, and back 9 much more challenging, shooting 77 and 74 respectively. Having booked online a 2ball and confirming our booking with the professional via phone, we were informed on the 1st tee we'd be with another couple... I'm sorry but none of... More

there're no more superlatives i can add to those of prior reviewers of the Championship (Medal) course. rather this is to encourage those visitors who have the time, to play the Burnside. it's a lot tougher than the usual 5,900 yard course, and is an unstrenuous 3 1/4 - 3 3/4 hour walk. excellent condition, and beautiful in the spring...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Burnside. So glad you enjoyed the fine test that it is. The new holes on the Buddon Links also makes that every bit as special and it is good to see players taking advantage of the 2 or 3 course deals More

Let me get this out of the way. It is hard. Harder than anywhere I've ever played. I've never been in so many bunkers. And if you are in a bunker, you add a stroke, period. Maybe more. But the place is fantastic. Gorse was in full bloom, and the wind was blowing, but no rain. Great local caddies. The... More

Arrived on 25th May for a 3 day golfing break. From start to finish it was an absolute pleasure the staff at the hotel couldn't have been more helpful. The room overlooking the 18th green just made the holiday. Room very clean and tidy facilities superb and after a round of golf the jacuzzi was a welcome sight. The food... More

Relaxed, atmosphere, well organised, excellent condition, fantastic course(s). We played all three courses Buddon Sat pm, Burnside Sun, Championship Mon. As you may guess the quality started high and got better in terms of challenge, and condition and sheer beauty.

We only walked the links courses but it was clear that these are fantastic golf courses especially the championship course. Around the links courses there sand dunes where willd flowers, birds and animals live within the Military Ranges. Providing the red flags are not flying, there are great walks in the dunes

Wow! I only have one more Open Rota course to play and this one ranks up there alongside Muirfield as the best and in my top 5 all time. We had a warm reception in the Pro Shop and the Starter was superb making us feel at ease before a daunting first tee shot. Here we received complimentary Course Guides... More

She can be brutal, but she is always fair ...

We played the Championship course on a day with a stiff breeze and it was brilliant. Just enough wind to get a real feel of the course but not too much. The greens were in brilliant condition, all the staff were very welcoming and the whole experience was first rate. You can really feel the history of the place. It... More
