Great course but let down by a total lack of facilities !! Not able to even get a coffee / tea on arrival ! ( They did switch the coffee machine on when I asked but only black coffee was on offer). Expensive Buggies (58 euros per buggy) and the bar was not open so again no facility to get an refreshment when we had finished our round. 4/10
