Great but tough golf course. Bring plenty of golf balls because you will lose a few. Make sure to hire a caddie as they are a big help with the course and also great to talk to. The staff there is very nice and helpful

A first class golf course in beautiful condition. It is a worthy venue for the 2019 Open. I enjoyed my round enormously on this high quality and very well maintained golf course. It is to be recommended.
