Great course in every way. Challenging to say the least. 4th hardest course in Scotland to play to handicap. Every hole is different and a great links layout. Superb condition considering the time of year. A credit to the green keepers. This is a true test of links golf with tight, Gorse lined, undulating fairways, At a fraction of the price you would pay at the so called big named clubs on the Ayrshire course. 10/10 value for money and quality.
