12 hole course with some picturesque and very interesting holes .. A good test of golf but you need to be straight and have a good short game.. Lots of blind tee shots... Can't wait to try it again.

Course in excellent condition. Pro shop very well stocked and helpful staff. The food at the clubhouse was very good value and enjoyable. Staff could be a bit more on the ball. Noticed the difference from off season to summer staff.

We both played the course once and had lunch at the tea-room twice. None disappointed. The course is a twelve hole gem with some of the quirkiest holes to be found anywhere. It is perfectly complemented by such a well run tea room where staff...More
