This golf course has been on my bucket list for a while. I’ve googled it, tried to plan trips to it, and even got as far as walking a few of the holes in January of 2015. I played it October 16,2018. Let me say...More

Played this on a spectacular fall day. This is not a m as manicured country club. Fescue everywhere, pins up hills, around corners, and the wind off the ocean makes it challenging. Bring extra balls. You will lose some. The views are spectacular, greens were...More

Hadn’t golfed in years, but was able to play this course with my husband last week. We had an early morning tee time before it got too busy. Beautiful links-style course overlooking the ocean. The links are less forgiving than you might think, with plenty...More

It's not a golf resort, it's not a plush private course, and it is a bit of a funky design. So how does it get five TA bubbles? For us, it was greatly reminiscent of a number of golf courses in small Scottish towns. Modest...More

The course looked amazing, it was a shame the staff was among the most rude and unfriendly people I have come across. At the cape for a family vacation and had booked a tee time with my father. He needed to rent clubs and I...More

My wife and I are retired less than average golfers. We loved the experience of this truly unique links style course. We hope to play again next year. Two points of caution, it's expensive, and we spent so much time sightseeing that we forgot how...More

This course is fun to play. It is a nine hole course and it costs thirty five dollars. It is a true links course with many blind shot that require your complete attention. Great views and. A great workout .

If you don't mind playing "9" holes in 3 hours or that walking with pullback costs $39, then by all means give it a try. Worst case, you can later walk up to the lighthouse with all the tourists. The drought has obviously affected the...More
