Local Knowledge
  • The par 3 fourth hole called ‘Leg O Mutton’. This par 3 is truly spectacular in views but beware of its beauty! The railway line to the right is out of bounds and a stream runs diagonally to the front and left of the green. So as we found out the hard way, the only safe place is on the green!
  • After you come of the course you will be greeted by the warmest of welcomes in the club house and the pro-shop alike. At this point we have to mention the food, absolutely superb and our recommendation is the freshly battered cod and chips, fantastic!
