Our round

Lovely golf course, with a great mixture of golf holes.
Would definitely play it again, the par three’s are a test for any golfer with some par fours that are just stunning to play.
Four played it and we would all play it again.

Great Course

Would recommend this course to anyone. Fairways are great, the greens are in good condition and it’s a really great a wee course to play. If you haven’t played it get a round booked, you won’t regret it.
Before I forget, the staff are really friendly and food in club house is really good and great value for money.
See you again soon.
Thanks,
Paul.

Very good greens

I enjoyed my round very much. The greens were excellent, very true and surprisingly fast for the time of year.
1st 9 easier than the 2nd 9 with relatively wide fairways but a good test of golf.
Will certainly play again.
