Played 2 days here at the end of April. Great value course, very friendly and helpful staff. The Guinness is excellent and the bar is often packed with non-golfers eating the superb food

We love this place. Alas have not been here for years. The course is truly magnificent as is the scenery. The beach has to be seen to be believed. Lovely friendly people and great food in club house. What more could you want?!
