Please bear in mind when I’m reviewing this course, that it’s based on the fact that the green fee is £87 per round, therefore being compared to other courses at a similar cost. Played as a 2 ball on a breezy day, enjoyed the 1st, laughed at the 2nd & admired the views from there on. The views were stunning, but this is not true links golf i.e. it is built on the top of a very exposed hill!?! Positives are the par 3s which were all good, greens nice & bunkering top-notch. The problem is you do not "play" the views, you play the course. No stand out holes here. This course is not in the same league as North Berwick next door for condition, views, memorable holes & a true links challenge. Oh and its cheaper. Glad I’ve played it but would rather play Hillside, Silloth, North Berwick, New Course or Jubilee at St Andrews. All better & all true links and all cheaper. At nearly £100 per round this course is not good value. Nonetheless glad I’ve finally played it.
