Great golf course. Maybe harder than Old course. Certainly the best of three including Jubilee. Greens seemed to have more character than Old course and Jublilee. Plenty of bunkers and not always on right like Old course.

We were only there for one day so couldn't get on the old course. As a single golfer, couldn't make reservations. If you get there early you can get you name in on the waiting list. Likely you could get on fairly easily. New course was short but challenging. The ground is very hard there...so take that into account on... More

This was a great clouse with lots of challenges. Looking for stray balls in the rough could prove to be a challenge. Keep it straight and in the short cut and you'll be ok.

Fanastic links course, actually enjoyed it more than the Old but that is maybe down to my score? And of course the cost is less than the Old.

The review title says it all. I have played golf all over the world and just love to come back to this area. It's links golf as it should be. A difficult test in, often, difficult conditions. Fantastic.

Took some friends with us for lunch. You get a great view from the clubhouse & great for impression first timers. I had mussels & crusty bread & they were fab. The creamy sauce was amazing so tasty. Others had sandwiches. All looked lovely & served with crisps. Recommend for lunch

Golfing the New Course is a real pleasure. It is challenging, interesting, and easy to get on in February and early March
