    There is a member on the forum but for the life of me I can't think who it is. I am sure somebody will be able to help you

    Get a buggy...

    It's seriously hilly!

    Good test of golf and usually excellent catering.
    some metal woods,
    any old irons,
    Pick up balls....

    10.8 and moving the right way again...

    Played it a few times recently.

    Lot of blind shots, it is a nightmare in the wind (and is almost windy)


    Take plenty of balls. Look up each hole beforehand and hit the right lines
    2016: Started Playing->23.0
    2017: 22.7->14.4

    It's more local knowledge than difficult (although a lack of the former makes it hard to score well!).

    Add the slopes into the equation and it can be frustrating as well when you hit a 'perfect shot' and find a less than perfect result.

    Challenging but enjoyable.

    I played it a couple of years ago in the winter.

    I really liked it. Some great views and as Duncan says, some decent catering.

    As you'd expect from the location it's a hilly course!
