Course Review and Comments

A stunning and perhaps the only example in the world of early links golf. This is the way Old Tom designed and intended golf to be. It is "the holy grail of links golf" and should be at the top of the bucket list of every serious golfer. Why else would someone like Mike Keiser of Bandon Dunes throw his considerable influence and resources behind the development of Askernish.

Course Service Comments Small staff but can't do enough for you. The greeting is that of a member of the family...
Course Facilities Rating
Course Facilities Comments Brand new, small but very adequate. Now, if they could just purchase the historic house just down the road that Old Tom stayed in - well, wouldn't that be something.....!
