We played The Old Course in May. The weather was absolutely atrocious with torrential rain for over an hour before we were due to tee off. I've played this course dozens of times, but was amazed at the quality of the course, even after all that rain. The fairways were like a carpet and the greens true and fast. If... More

When we played between Christmas and New Year the golf shop was being refurbished and the bar / restaurant was closed. However, I would say that the staff in golf reception and on the course were excellent. They explained the refurbishment programme and offered us a complimentary coffee, water and a baguette to take with us. So, to the course,... More

The Old Course proved itself to be as good a layout as I had been lead to believe. The tees and fairways were in decent condition, but the greens were, to be frank, poor. I have seen other reviews from the same time if the year, saying the greens were slow, but in my opinion the pace wasn't the main... More

We booked the first twi light round of the day and joined up with a single player to make us a 3 ball. The course was in fantastic condition and looked superb from wherever you looked, the greens were still pretty quick considering the time of year. We played 4 courses on our trip and this was the best one... More

WOW - What a golf course - some very narrow fairways and all the them lined with tightly packed tree lines. If you're not accurate with your tee shot be prepared to lose plenty of balls. Lovely grub after the round served by friendly helpful staff.

Good course with some interesting and challenging holes. Good course marshalls keeping things moving but also explaining the reason behind any delays. Course was tidy and will manicured although the greens were a little slow however it had rained heavily the nigh before. Clubhouse is a little 'tired' in terms of the decor however the staff were very friendly and... More
