There is nothing to dislike about this course, it is a privilege to play here! The course is difficult, but fun to play. The caddies are excellent and very helpful.

Course played difficult, but was in very good condition, as always, even if it was the middle of winter.

Tough course, no doubt. Well kept with an excellent Clubhouse. The location is wonderful, scenic and if you don't want to play, walk with the players. You will observe some wildlife, I am sure.
