Played this course a few times and, for beginners or occasional golfers, it's excellent value.
There's a good mix of short and long holes, and varied terrains to cross.
More experienced players might find the course a little short, and there is little landscaping to define the bunkers and the greens are on the small side.
Main negative is that groups are sent off every 5 mins after 5pm in summer, which is far too close together for the standard of players.

Fabulous little course good club house with friendly and extremely helpful staff. The course is easily suitable for a beginner or an experienced golfer an it will only get better with time highly recommended!

Friendly atmosphere - a very well laid out course with interesting views in all directions. With my level of skill it will take a long time to master, and probably cost a fortune in balls in the water at the par three second.

As a beginner I found this course enjoyable & challenging. Lovely location & very friendly staff.
