Measuring some 6500 yards from the back tees, the course consists of a mixture of links and parkland with scattered clumps of gorse and heather, which when combined with the often breezy conditions, calls for varied shot-making, each round proving a unique experience, offering a challenge for the more experienced golfer, but still playable by beginners. The large undulating greens and surrounding bunkers require concentration on approach and finesse with the putter.
The course is open all year, and whilst the members will tell you it is at its best in the spring and autumn, it is a particularly good winter course, never requiring temporary tees or greens.
The clubhouse offers an informal environment and stunning views, with generous changing facilities and a fully licensed bar with light snacks and full restaurant facilities. Trolley and buggy hire, as well as all the usual golf “extras”, are available from the well stocked professionals shop.
