This course is sick! Plays long and punishing. You'd better stay on the short stuff. Greens are perfect. Played South and North in two days. What an experience.

A very beautiful golf course that I would definitly play once. One downside is it is just too long. 6000 yards from the red tees. But I enjoyed the experience even though I shot awful.

Reviewed April 30, 2010

Great place to play if you are a local at $60, but at $250 incl advance booking fee, far too pricey. For that price I can play St Andrews Old, Turnberry Ailsa, Carnoustie or a good few other exceptional courses with facilities other than a public toilet to change my shoes. The pitch marks that hadn't been repaired were ridiculous. Our first 9 holes were extremely slow due to a shotgun start corporate day. The ranger had a cheek to say we were behind at the 11th.
