Enjoyed this course. Some very tough holes but also some stunning views. Half pine forest, half links. Well marshalled and worth a visit.

A rather fragmented course where you wander around houses and back gardens of houses which at times are built rather near to the course. Be careful with your shots and do not hit too far out of bounds.....

One of the top golf courses in Europe? No way! Although lay out and scenery is qitenice, this is definitely not one of the best. Course is quite challenging, fairways and greens are in good condition. But the ugly architecture surrounding almost every hole! Hurts...More
