Stunning, top work from the greenkeepers.

I love this course, I don’t get to play it very often but it’s an absolute gem. Played it over Christmas and then again in mid April and the work gone into the course was not unnoticed. Greens were pristine and a really nice pace, fairways were very good and the view never gets old.

Fantastic course, must be played if you can

Great course, challenging and picturesque as you would expect from a links course. Some fab holes, fairways and greens in very good condition. Club professional very friendly and helpful, welcoming members which is good news for first time visitors. I would definitely recommend this course and hope to be back in the summer. Thanks

This course has great features

The course had fantastic views, and the course conditions were amazing. However, some holes are played across or on top of each other which meant we had to wait quite a lot. But overall we had a great day and would definitely recommend

Stunning

We played this course in all its glory on a sunny autumn day, I imagine the wind plays a big part in the members regular games
The views were beautiful, the greens superbly maintained and the overall experience exceptional, I look forward to my return with great anticipation.
Well done to all the staff

Great afternoons golf

First time for us at Whitsand Bay, we found the greens and fairways in great condition. We played on a sunny calm day, and found the course tough but very playable.

Lovely course

Great little links course, quite short with fantastic views on every hole. You will be rewarded for accuracy off the tee.

May not be the world’s greatest golf course, but has some of the greatest views and is in really good condition and offers great VFM. Highly recommended.

Great little test of golf

Front nine is tight with amazing scenery and very testing holes
Back nine a little easier typical links greens
Needed a couple of extra signs for tee direction but overal well worth the visit and will play again I when in the area.
Pro very welcoming.
