Great value - great test

I always love the course here. Today was the first game for my son at DCGC
Calm today but still challenging with the undulations and tough rough

Worth Playing

Enjoyed playing on the course but pace was a bit slow. Unfortunately the bar/kitchen closed as soon as we came to the 19th...this was 5pm.

Nice course and lovely setting

Nice course with great coastal setting. Greens excellent. Rough very deep and would speed up play if cut back. Foggy when we played but otherwise would be great views. Very good value for money. Nice layout,

Great links course for straight hitters

Thoroughly enjoyed the round. Never played it before so got into trouble on quite a few holes. Lack of rain meant Some Fairways were very dry with sparse grass and hard ground causing bad bounces into trouble.
Greens were superb. Fabulous views of the castle.

Ssshhh, don’t tell everyone

One of my favourite courses. Another great day out in challenging conditions due to the wind.

Superb condition

The month of May 2021 may not be remembered fondly in the long term memory of many, the weather has been dismal and Patrick Bamford has just been left out of the Euro’s squad!

That being said, the condition of this course is nothing less than superb! Having played many of the courses around Leeds in recent weeks, it took me a good while get used to the firm greens, sending most of my approach shots bouncing over the back on the front 9. The greens really were superb, well rolled, strategically undulating, fast and consistent from 1-18.

The course layout is fairly simple, the front 9 doesn’t offer much scenery, but the back 9 opens up to the sea and offers some great views of the castle as you play towards it. It’s a fairly short course, predominantly par 4s, but with undulating fairways the holes played longer than the card would suggest... especially into the North Sea wind.

For the money, the condition is superb. If I was looking to pick fault the course layout could be a bit more imaginative, but I really do think I’m clutching at straws... I’ll be back next summer without a doubt.

Beautuful Views

A course with spectacular views and some long challenging holes along with quite short but interesting par 3s. A great day out by the sea.
