This course was a very mixed bag. The tee beds, greens and aprons were all in very good condition but the fairways were rough, rather pitted and weedy in places. The course is very open and therefore play is more affected by the wind. The design was interesting but there was a lot of black volcanic grit areas along the sides of the fairways which were not always easy to play from and the edges of them tended to have a lot of grass and weeds to snag up balls which were rolling. We did enjoy our round here although the driving range was in very poor condition with really old and tired balls.
The pros shop was non existent. There was just a counter to hand over the voucher and pay for the trolleys. We had a morning tee time and there was nowhere to get coffee or buy bottles of drink. We learnt later that the course is actually for sale.
There was a restaurant at the course which opened at lunchtime and we had an excellent lunch there after our game. The food was very good if a little pricey.
