A very warm welcome. Good food and hospitality. The golf course is fantastic two differing nines both in great condition. Well set out in perfect golfing country. The back nine through and around the dunes is spectacular. The tenth in as pretty a par three as you will find.

A very warm welcome and not stuffy at all like many top courses. Course was well presented. Greens were excellent and the back 9 was simply outstanding and a MUST PLAY. Even though I hit far too many fairway bunkers still enjoyed! Could be played by all standards as long as you choose you tee blocks carefully

When indulging my favourite pastime I do so with two intentions. Firstly I seek to conquer the course, to beat whatever it can throw at me and to post as low a score as possible given the circumstances. Secondly I look to be wowed. I want to take something away from places I can hold on to, something to enthuse... More

Most overrated course in Britain. Front 9 like a municipal back 9 improves but only slightly. The greens are flat , unkept & too small. Better off on crazy golf down the pier.

What an amazing course, testing front 9 and stunning back 9. Bursting with character, and well maintained throughout, this was one of best course I have played in my golfing career. My favourite hole was the par 5 11th with its raised tee, sea view, winding fairway and lovely woodland surrounding the green. Had a great day on this course... More

I have been fortunate enough to play Hillside about six times over the years and it is always a delight. The bar is very welcoming and the members look after everything very well. The snack food is just perfect for either before or after gold and the drinks excellent

playing a course that the greats of the game have played is a great experience and when the members and the staff make you very welcome it just makes the day so much better
