Great short course

Great course and very well maintained. Quite compact though so very easy to find the wrong fairway with a wayward shot. Only issue we had was very slow play by some older members in front with no offer to play through. Otherwise great course if you get a good deal.

Good 9 hole course with some lovely views

Don’t generally play 9 hole courses but this is a nice wee course with some nice holes. Playing twice was no issue and allowed to correct some mistakes from the first 9. We would definitely recommend it and will definitely be back.
Temporary green on the first and mats on fairways but it’s winter so to be expected
