I'm a huge fan of this golf course. It divides opinion upon many people who have played it. Those looking for a 'pretty' golf course will hate the place. The racecourse is always in view (and play), and the adjacent caravan park is noisy and ugly. However, focus on the holes ahead of you, and there are some true links classics out there. This is not a coastal course, it is an out and out links. Hole 11 is the signature hole, and would not be out of place on many an Open venue. There are some blind shots, and some really tough golf holes. If you are the sort of player that loves the challenge of a windy links and can focus on what is in front of you and not around you, then you will enjoy Caister.
