Not sure you'll find a better course for views. We played here last month and found the course to be excellent value for money and somewhere we'll certainly be returning to.
Can't understand why this has not been reviewed for years. This is a course that is like playing Turnberry at a fraction of the cost. Surrounded by sea on a peninsula - worth checking out on your Isle of Man golf tour.
Anyone that likes fine links courses will find this very much to their taste. It's island location means the sea is visible from every hole. The greens are true and the fairway turf is springy and delightful (there has been a lot of rain in the Isle of Man this year). There is great variety and some holes are as good as you will find anywhere. The 5th "Road hole" is difficult off the tee and presents an even more challenging approach to a sloping green. It was raining as our round came to a close, but 16,17 and 18 were a delight. The par 3 16th is very pretty round the green. The "Short drive over the Irish Sea" from the raised 17th tee is fantastic, and the blind dog leg 18th with the sea encroaching from the right is a superb end to a great sea side layout. As usual for links, the degree of difficulty depends on the strength of the wind! Sadly, the hotel is defunct and looking very sad. Let's hope an entrepreneur will build something that lives up to the high standard set by the golf course.
Fantastic location, with stunning views. Greens slick and true. Some testing holes, particularly the fourth and seventeenth. Well worth a visit for the views alone.
Truly a great links course which i would recommend to anybody, from teeing off over somebodies glass conservatory to the 17th over the rocks and sea on 3 sides with a stiff breeze blowing its a sure test of nerves to keep a decent card. i visit there once a year and use this course to see if my golf has improved or not over the past year. P.S. take some spare balls with you. HCP 14.2
A true links course. I played in August and the wind was howling, however the locals said it was a mild breeze. You had better be able to keep the ball low & bump and run it here. The finishing holes are truly fantastic. A true test for any player.
A real links challenge; plenty of gorse and lightning fast greens. Views over the Irish sea when driving on the 17th and 18th are truly spectacular and a challenge to any golfer. When the weather's fair its a challenging course in itself, but wait 'til the wind starts to blow across the peninsular and the rain starts to come down horizontally! You'll need a drink when you get back to the hotel bar!
