General Comments:

Despite the lack of amenities this is one of the best links courses anywhere. Don't come looking for great food either. Pretty much just hot dogs and sandwiches. The pro shop staff is very friendly though.

There are many interesting holes and if your like me (high handicapper) make sure you bring lot and lots of golf balls - you will definitely need them. The fescue is relentless and because the fairways are so narrow you will be in it a lot!

In spite of the above, I love playing this course. The mix of risk reward choices presented to the golfer and the requirement to be accurate is a really great mix.

Make sure you bring your 'A' game!

Best Hole: #9 par 5
Why: One of the best par 5's anywhere. A difficult challenge.

Overall rating : Impressive

Overall value: Good value
