This linkscourse is the weakest of its Two neighbours, St Georges and Princess. Here you fond some crazy holes and the fairways are narrow. In combination with strong winds and high ruff this a real test but fun.

The course was in superb condition and a great test for even the top professionals. The club house is beautiful and takes you back to another time when standards mattered. The staff were courteous and the organisation was low key but excellent. A really lovely...More

A real treat to play this classic links course. Even in May, it was firm and bouncy with typical links lies. The greens were in excellent order and there is a big practice ground located close to the Clubhouse. The Pro shop staff were extremely...More
