Powfoot Golf Club
Deze links course verraste ons met zeer goede kwaliteit van onderhoud. Greens om door een ringetje te halen; mooi egaal en snel met goede rol als resultaat. Ook de fairways mooi en fijn om vanaf te spelen, de tee’s royaal en vlak. Het parcours van deze compacte baan is misschien niet heel spannend maar de holes zijn wel prima en gevarieerd. De tee van de volgende hole is …

Well worth a visit.

Newton Stewart Golf Club
Played early on a beautiful Spring morning. The course was really well maintained and in good condition, spoilt only by damage caused by badgers.

Got a friendly welcome i…
