This is golf as it should be ! Played it in May 2012 and also stayed overnight at the hotel. The hotel is amazing, service, food, drink everything is 5* and can't be faulted, staff cant do enough for you but without hovering around at your every move. The course is simply the best course i've played, and i've played a fair share of the uk top 100. the weather was great, brisk wind but not too strong to make the course unplayable or your game unmanageable. there's a good 5 or 6 memorable holes that remain engraved in my mind. the vista's across to Ailsa Crag and the Mull of Kintyre are breathtaking, this is playing golf in an area of beauty ..... can't wait to go back ... play the Kintyre aswell, thats a good test of golf but on a slightly more varied landscape ... has a few holes that have an inland pine forest feel to them .. but as you'd expect the course was equal in quality of condition to its more illustrious relative next door..
