The owners try to make out that this course is something special, quoting often: "Listed in the Encyclopedia of Golf as one of the 19 greatest championship courses in Continental Europe". I don't know which decade this quote dates back to, most likely the last century. This description is frankly an offence under the Trade Descriptions Act.
The course is extremely poor. Its condition is atrocious. There are no qualified greenkeepers to maintain it. The fairways have cracks across them down which you lose your ball. The greens are diseased, bald in areas, contain weeds many and varied species and are of uneven speeds. The bunkers have no sand in them just hard-compacted builder's grit. The members putt out of them! The clubhouse is dingy, dirty and unwelcoming - so are the staff. The Manager is extremely rude. The clubhouse is closed from November to April, so if you want the 'facilities' - no chance. No chance either for a beer, coffee or anything. When it is open the food is limited, of poor quality and expensive. At €55 per round this place is a joke. Yes its something special alright - but not as they would have you believe. If you enjoy your golf, avoid this one. Name not supplied - October 13, 2009
I totally agree with the previous reviewer, I only wish I had read it before booking a round last week. I can't imagine how a course in this state can claim to be in Europe's top 20. I didn't see any evidence that the course had seen a greenkeeper in several years.
