Reviewed June 14, 2012

A friendly welcome awaits you and a deceptively difficult course awaits. Don't be fooled the easy start disguises a challenge to come. Food at the club is basic

“It rained but not as bad as in October!”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

The back nine is beautiful. Challenging holes , beautiful views, and well maintained. It stopped raining when we came off 18. So we had a lovely lunch sitting on the porch overlooking the course. Service was excellent.

“A Beautiful Golf Course”
Reviewed March 5, 2012

This is my favourite golf course for a number of reasons. Firstly, the course is beautifully set and is very challenging, especially the back nine holes. Secondly, the restaurant is very good with an excellent range of meals available. Thirdly, the staff, in the Pro-Shop, the restaurant and the club are very helpful and friendly.
