Played here February ,2011 (£19 using a county card).
Fairly enjoyable ,flat,tranquil links set on a slightly unusual narrow spit of land going out into an estuary .
When you arrive initial impressions are slightly concerning .A bit unkempt ,with a large corrugated hut & what looks to be a makeshift car park on matting to the right & a green over a road & by a wall to the left & a small joint fairway that goes out in a v shape .If someone didn't know any better i could possibly envisage them reversing the car back out.
However ,things pick up quickly once you get going .
The holes are primarily gorse lined .There is a sea bank which prevents views to the right & the estuary ahead & to the left .The holes feel quite natural to the point that some feel slightly unkempt as opposed to pristine but this is part of the courses charm .There's also a lot of strategy involved as opposed to brute force as the holes tend to be more narrow than open.
Decent par 3's .Favourite hole was the dogleg par 4 7th where you can choose to hit across the small beach & that also has a ditch in front of the green .
It doesn't seem to drain as well as other links courses as it was sodden in a few places & some bunkers were full of water + we played off mats.
Club was welcoming.
Overall, a pleasant & quite good fun round of golf.
A great course which I highly reccomend. In true links fashion, the 1st fairway is shared with the 18th going the other way. Sea grass is on the course and this makes for sandy fairways and very fast greens during the summer months. Many deep bunkers, very penal, with beach sand can trap a ball and make for a bad score. The 18th hole is great, a tee shot onto the shared 1st/18th fairway and then hit your second, avoiding the clubhouse on the right, to a green which has a large wall right behind, and a path infront.
Good value for money if using greenfee voucher, although a bit on the expensive side. Also, you must be a member of a well recognised course to play there.
I played this challenging course last Monday . There are some tricky holes but some nice less difficult ones to balance out the course.The varying wind is an interesting extra problem to cope with. I found the members very friendly and indeed my thanks to Keith and Sue for very kindly inviting me to join them for another round on the Wednesday which I also duly enjoyed. The views across he water are spectacular in places.Look forward to returning in February
My wife and I played this delightful links course on the Tursday before Easter. The course was in excellent condition with some tricky holes and plenty of gorse! The Club was very welcoming with a pleasant club-house and good food. I have no hesitation in recommending.
