Had a light meal in the club house before the round which was quite nice. The course itself is like a resort course with generous... More

Beautiful castle to stay in. The staff were very friendly. The castle has been updated just enough for current comfort with a castle feel. Our room was a little smokey because it shared the main area fireplace chimney but it was tolerable. If you don't golf there isn't much else to do at the castle but they are supposedly adding...

Truly enjoyed the course. The putting green had been a bit crowded, but cleared quickly. The clubhouse is a great place to just sit and relax, after shooting a round and watching the deer enjoy the course as much as the players.
