High expectations after seeing photos and other players comments. This is an amazing golf course! It's location - situated on an old sheep farm high on the cliffs overlooking Hawkes Bay. When you call from the gate to the proshop and the man says "see you in a while" he really means it. The drive beyond the gates windles through pine trees in a canyon and takes about 20 minutes. The service - low key, knowledgeble, helpfulThe clubhouse and surroundings - Petite, but including everything you could wish for. Fantasic view over the course and ocean. Lovely changing rooms. Well equipped shop.The course - Not a course to play defensly on. Often too short approaches dwindles down either side of the green and it will be very dificult to evn reach the green with the following shot. Impossible to seperate the course from the views. At least one interesting shot on every hole. You can walk the course and even with the bridges etc we were very tired after 18.Great day!
