The accommodation was great: clean and roomy and the staff were helpful. I was also happy to find the course had been kept in good condition over winter, and I thoroughly enjoyed my time.

Liked everything! Disliked nothing! This is a great place for every golfer especially large groups where everyone is treated as if they are the most important person staying there and the golf is challenging but great fun!
