Good golf course apart from the par 5's can't understand why you would have holes that are 560 yards in length with ditches in front of the greens they tend to spoil it in my view but it's still not a bad place to be...More

The course was in excellent condition and a great test of my game. Especially the bunkers! The meal in the club house was excellent. A good place to eat, although slightly expensive, worth paying the extra just for the magnificent views across the bay.

Nicely maintained course. Coursebook was not included in the fee. The restaurant was ok but low on variety in snacks. Wind was a big factor during play. Great course to play. Casle course is better. And kittcocks has more seaside play.

Played the "Torrance Course" for the 1st time yesterday after having twice chosen to play "Kittocks" rather than here. In all honesty, although I found them both similar in nature, I'd have to say I preferred "Kittocks" ... but the "Torrance" has many good aspects...More

Hello Andrew, Hope you got to play both courses. Sorry for the delay on replying! I would have said the Torrance was the best one first. The Kittocks is more challenging, and tougher to walk in from if the weather turns on... More
