I play here most years. My 2017 visit was in January. The course is now thoroughly bedded in after its redesign, and is a real pleasure.
It is beautiful, a proper challenge, but reasonably forgiving. A bad shot costs you a shot or two, not a reload. Very good greens, fairways in excellent condition, tees not quite so good. The Atlantic holes are some of the most spectacular you will see anywhere.
The course was uncrowded, the clubhouse is good, the staff very helpful and the whole thing was very good value.
