The Club’s strategy centres around gradually improving our “Holiday Course” for members and visitors enjoyment at affordable prices. The course will be enhanced in sympathy with the unique natural landscape.

It will continue to be a test for a fine golfer. The strategy is underpinned by improvement action plans and a marketing plan.
