Lovely and short

Good to hone in your short game but takes some navigating due to bad signage around the course.

Odd Layout & Very Short

We got lost! Ended up walking from the 2nd on the Kirby course to the 15th on the 18 hole course (think it’s the Havers). Baffles me why there are no signs on this course and very few tees have numbers/yardage markers.

The course was in good condition and the 18 hole course looked good so I will be giving that a go soon. The staff were great especially during all the COVID-19 madness.

In summary I’d play the 18 hole course here unless you’re looking for a quick pitch and putt.
