We had played Humewood 2 years ago and were anxious to return. Our first impression was that the clubhouse had aged and needed rejuvenation. Unfortunately the drought has affected the fairways. We had decided to use a caddy. Mikel (?) was a detriment not an...More

The staff at the Pro Shop is friendly and cater for your needs. My caddie Godfrey was helpful in his advice. During the drought the course is well maintained. A must for any golfer.

Being in the area on holiday we had to play this course and it was worth it. This is real links golf. I suspect this course has not been changed for years. Please don't change it. You could easily imagine you are playing in Britain,...More
