We played the course on May 23rd. 2013
A very warm welcome at the clubhouse - and excellent lunch washed down with an excellent pint - green fee paid and the enquiry ' is the course very hilly?' was met with a non-commital 'not really'.
We then fought our way up a one in seven incline to the first tee and the round began. The course was in excellent condition - and I'm sure that if I was a regular here, after a few rounds I'd be in excellent condition too. Honesty compels me to add that after the first six 'not really hilly' holes we headed for the more open level parkland delights of the cliff top section of the course.
The hurricane hit us on the 16th - not a hole to mess with in sunny calm weather - let alone in a 50mph cross wind - but hey - power fades and subtle draws are meat and drink to 23 handicappers like us - and the front (with all its occlusions) passed through in less than 10 mins and we were playing the last two holes in sunshine.
We both loved the course and want to play it again - It's quirky - full of surprises - plenty of risk/reward options for any standard of golf. Some of the views are stunning! This is a gem.
