Course Review and Comments

Very basic public course, the Starter's hut is a steel freight container, no facilities at all unless you have access to the clubhouse which was locked when I visited. The first time you play try to go with someone who knows the course. There is no map of the course available anywhere, no signs from green to the next tee even when the route is not obvious. Very few tees have a number on them. If you don't know your way around you have to guess which is the next tee and even which is the relevant green. I gave up after 6 holes as I couldn't work out the layout. Most of the holes I played had very steep sideways slopes on the fairway, it doesn't matter where you put the ball it still ends up on the bottom of the slope probably in the first cut of rough. Unique, hilly and scenic but must have a map or guide or GPS.
