A rather unusual design, much of which is on the side of the hill with views over the valley. The opening holes across a rather steep slope are not as remarkable as many of the others. Some of the greens have extremely severe slopes so require a precise shot or local knowledge to know where the ball will come to... More

Wanted to experience an Alister MacKenzie course in as near to the original architecture as possible. Opened 1925 it retains the naturalness of surrounding countryside that MacKenzie courses are renown for with plenty of subtle and not so subtle demands on the player.

On arrival the lady in the Professionals shop was most helpful. The course although a little short in length is a delight to play. We will definitely play the course again next time we are in the area.
