Wonderful round of golf with stunning scenery and curious sheep and cows. Stayed in the Links Apartments close by and used the gym and pool at Royal Marine Hotel close by. Well worth a visit.

The restaurant here is very serene and service is wonderful. My food selection was very good. The view is to die for including the sheep and lambs grazing just outside the windows.
