Course Review and Comments

Great course, on a par with Kingsbarns, Turnberry and Royal County Down as one of the great courses in the UK. The complaints about hairy bumps in the fairway should be ignored. They are part of golf and not invisible. Ditto the greens, which have severe slopes here and there but which are obvious to the eye and part of golf as well.

Keep it as it is and let the real golfers find it!
