I played this in June as part of a 3-day golf tour. We got really lucky with the weather, the morning stopped just prior to tee off. Good weather always makes it more enjoyable. This is a good solid links course and brilliant value for money. It's a traditional out and back. The sight of the old gas works is very marked on the outward nine (similar to Dunbar). some people may have a problem with this, personally it's a land mark and I think added to the character of the place.
There are some good holes (18th particularly challenging) and some average ones (like most courses). It's a good test for most golfers - real low cappers may find it a bit trouble-free. The course was in good nick, the locals extremely friendly and the grub in the clubhouse was very good. It's not good enough to warrant a long drive to play (say > 80m) but ideal if you are in the area or planning a tour to the North East. Traditional golf for "old scholl" golfers not really for the slick corporate types in their rented white Beemers.
