if you want a fine course, that is in tip top condition all year round, look no further, this will test you on all 18 and the views even in bad weather are stunning

All the food was excellent quality and beautifully presented. We arrived about 7:30, and in June there is still plenty of light left for golfers to be out, so I'm afraid it was rather noisy. Still, we enjoyed our meals.

A true test of golf in this well maintained and beautifully manicured course. The greens deserve special mention and are a credit to the head greenkeeper. Beautiful club house serving snacks and full meals very nice cuisine and choice.

Testing course , specially when the wind blows . The first few holes along the sea require perfect ball control , the rest of the course slightly less demanding . Good exercise , a few steep climbs, with good views [ on a clear day ] . We paid 30 EUR , not bad for a course in walking distance... More

The views are unmatched. The first four holes are on the ocean. It was really cold and raining when we played, but everyone still played and I know why - it's not to be missed. We rented clubs which were fine. The course is a challenging walk but worth every step.

I am not a member here. But go regularly for food. Which is always excellent. Granted the restaurant interior is basic. But the service, value and food make up for that. Also the views of the bay are amazing. Well worth a try.
