Course Reviews Attacked this course with a little trepidation after reading John Moore's comments from March 2010. Fortunately things had improved a lot; the tee boxes, though small, were adequate, the fairways were ideal and the greens were perfect.
Costs in the high season, including discounts for residents were E47 for a full round (E40 for 12 holes, even though the clubhouse is nearer the end of the 13th !!), E30 for a buggy and E5 for a trolley.
The full yardage off the whites is about 6400 yards and there are some long treks between greens and tees on five holes. All par 5's are about 450 yards with three being capable of being reached in two (the other is blind, downhill with many lateral hedges and just easy to reach with two seven irons and a pitch.
Other than that, the course does not offer much in mental exercise or 'wow' factor; there is no chance of reaching any par 4 from the tee and the only dog leg bends at the point you'd hit it to anyway.
So, for me, it was just a case of banging down the fairway to put it in 'the zone' of a decent approach shot. Even the signature 16th (par 3, 122 yards downhill) has the brochure photograph taken from the 17th tee and most of the view of the harbour from the 16th tee is blocked by an enormous bank and hedge.
In summary, this isn't a course where you can knock shots off your round having known the layout, which is disappointing when you look at the layout and see what they could have done with it, especially through the forest (14th on).
Value For Money: Fair
Mark: 6/10

I have played this course twice a year for the last 4 years and have just returned from playing it on 19th March. I have got to say the 4 of us were extremely disappointed in the condition and presentation of the course. At 37euros a head, I expect more from a course than we got. It seems Formula One who own it are spending all the money in the clubhouse and proshop rather than on the course. Many issues here. Appalling Tee areas which were uneven, bare or full of sand. Fairways which have poor grass density and are full of hardened worm casts - simple to resolve. The aprons had been unexplicably ripped up on many of the greens resulting in a real mess and impossible to chip on. Don't miss the fairway because even just a couple of yards off the fairway will present a lie that is just impossible. Big tufts of grass alongside bare soil. It cost us 168euros for our 4 ball which is just not value for money. It's a good job the 18th is the best hole on the course because at least the last playing memory is a positive one. It was no suprise that we did not see any other golfers on the course and incidently no green staff either despite it being a week day.
Premier rates for a c class course. Sorry, but never again
