Bar lunch at golf course, very much like pub with pub grub. Veg soup was rustic and very good, chips were horrible so dry. Beer was ok. Staff friendly.

From the telephone booking to the warm post round hospitality. This is a very friendly, self assured club. Great course providing a fair but tough test. Great greens with views that will distract even the most focused player and a fine club house to massage...More
