Stayed in the cottage of a friend for 5 days on a mini golf tour and finished off with a round here on Sunday. I'd have no hesitation in playing there again. A few problems with the clubhouse but golf just fine.

A very quirky golf course. First few holes are brilliant and there are some nice holes on the back nine too. Clubhouse is a bit dated, but I liked it as it reminded me of 'old school' golf. Some of the greens and bunkers weren't...More
