Very good golf course with some excellent holes in very good condition. Some really standout holes but a green fee of 300 euros I expected more. The club house was ok and the staff friendly but again I expected more. So if it's on your bucket list give it a go but you may feel a little let down.

The service varies from non-existent( I have played twice and arrived at the clubhouse to find both bar and restaurant closed!!!)to just ok.

But what top golf course isn't? Played in a tournament here and suffice to say none of us played to our hc. It is very tough and the greens are unbelievably fast. One of my partners putted his ball off the 17th green into the pond. But you have to play at least once in your life. So go.

Even for people who do practice golf... The maintenance of the greens and surroundings is outstanding.

Course in absolutely pristine condition No such thing as a bad lie Cork trees, 2500+, line and behind each hole, canopies touching. Very difficult course, but not overly long and as beautiful as can be. Nice small place to eat and a deck overlook s the first tee. Staff very courteous and attentive to guests Got me a caddie on...

OK it's expensive. Really expensive. One of those bucket listers that'll bust the bank. But then what did you expect? I expected an unbelievable experience, to play astounding holes, impeccable green-keeping and a sensation that at long last I would fulfil all my golfing dreams. Well..... Once you've found the place, away from the glitz and glamour and yet located... More

Played two rounds in November. Impeccable golf course. First round was memorable because I really wanted to play that golf track at least once in my life. As a big bonus I played it twice and found it a little easier than the first day.

It was a dream of mine to play this course and I was hoping that I would not be disappointed. It was a truly fantastic experience and it definitely lived up to its reputation. Service is superb and the golf amazing. The starters make sure no one goes off too quick so there is generally no waiting on the course.... More

Never crowded. Just golf, no fuss. Beautiful scenery and holes that are non of them alike. Perfect upkeep and perfect clubhouse. Wonderful personnel.

Played as a guest so fee affordable this time . There had been strong winds 3 or 4 days prior and it was continuing so leaves and twigs and nuts had all fallen off the many cork oaks that line the course. Made it very tricky. Despite this still loved the experience of playing this course. Best time to play... More
