Beautiful, scenic and challenging. Friendly helpful staff. I would suggest getting a caddy to help read the greens which have tremendous undulation. Great course

This golf course is amazing, it's in great conditions, so nice to play. The views stunning, I would recommend the course to anyone. The Women's open is better than ever before, fantastic organisation. Looking forward to next time.
