We rented a lodge on an exchange with Interval International.The welcome pack said that lodge guests were entitled to half price golf and discounts on the food and drinks.When I asked I was told this was not for me as I was not an actul lodge owner.The lodge manager went dashing round the golf shop,bar and restaurants with a sheet to say that I could not have any discounts which initially some were going to give me.This put me off playing golf at over £50 a round and £ 25 for a buggy.The golf staff said there were free buggies for lodge owners.I went to enquire but told tht was not for me as I was only an exchange person-a second class citizen.Tha attitude of the lodge staff put a damper of the holiday.The lodges are spacious and clean and there is a very efficient newspaper delivery system.However,the prices in the bars and restaurants are very expensive for basic food and drinks.The crazy golf was overgrown and the bikes available for hire did not work properly.the cheap academy golf course was only £9 but it was not kept properly.there were holes on the greens and they were covered in leaves and debris.Obviously,all the attention was on the two main courses and this was neglected.Signage to it was lacking.Possibly they did not want anyone to go on it.
What could have been an excellent break was spoilt by the exorbitant prices and the attitude of the lodge staff.Do not goon an exchange here
