I would recommend a buggy unless you are young and very fit. Fantastic views. A difficult course if you have not played it before. Very tiring if you are not used to a hilly course. A very nice clubhouse good food.

Stopped by for a daily breakfast! Full English was delicious and really well cooked. Prices are really reasonable approx £7 for a full breakfast, £9 for the kraken (huge breakfast) both are well recommended! Right on the beach and the two owners are really welcoming
