Tighter than the Old course with smaller greens and more bunkers; would love to play again .However cant match the Old course for an experience not to be matched!

Reviewed March 19, 2013

Fanastic links course, actually enjoyed it more than the Old but that is maybe down to my score? And of course the cost is less than the Old.

“The best golf courses in the world”
Reviewed March 19, 2013

The review title says it all. I have played golf all over the world and just love to come back to this area. It's links golf as it should be. A difficult test in, often, difficult conditions. Fantastic.

“Lunch”
Reviewed March 18, 2013

Took some friends with us for lunch. You get a great view from the clubhouse & great for impression first timers. I had mussels & crusty bread & they were fab. The creamy sauce was amazing so tasty. Others had sandwiches. All looked lovely & served with crisps. Recommend for lunch

“a pleasant surprise”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

Golfing the New Course is a real pleasure. It is challenging, interesting, and easy to get on in February and early March
