It took 5 hours to play 16 holes. Course very overbooked not enough time between tee times, to complete 18 holes would have taken 6 hours. Staff not welcoming or friendly to visitors. Would not recommend as there are other and much better courses nearby.

The drought in the region makes this course probably more boring then in normal circumstances. Holes 7, 8 and 9 are a bit more creative then the rest. The greens and surrounding areas are in good condition. Good organisation for taking orders for the halfway...More

Great atmosphere around the club house, and wonderful layout of the golf course. The greens were in excellent condition and we had great fun. Due to water restrictions, the fairway was a bit brown We did play with 3 caddies and they were all good!:)More
