Golf porn. As simple as that. A bit pricey but you get what you pay for. A must play for any serious golfer.

its where Seve, Bobby Jones, Gene Sarazon & James Braid will be playing a four ball in heaven.

£200 is a lot for any game of golf but I can't fault the course or facilities. Awesome greens.

A must for any golfer. Very special and will be in anyone's top 5 in the world. Playing 17 shows you how remarkable Harrington's 5 wood was in 2008.The 12th was shut and before we even asked, the pro gave us money (x 19 players!) back. I dare anyone to tell me another club that would volunteer that. Port Rush should take some customer service tips from these guys!

A fantastic experience on and off a magnificent golf course. Outstanding hospitality and friendliness from the members and staff. High winds and deep rough made this a very tough golf day but hugely enjoyable.

Great course in great condition
But too expensive
  DuncanG1505 - 8/25/11
A stunning course that deserves the consistent ranking in the top 10 of GB&I courses. More of what I expect from a links course compared to Lytham and greater variety of views on each hole. Outstanding course.
  AJMOORS - 7/25/11
Fabulous course but not overly taxing for a decent golfer unless you play the full championship golf course. Was privilegded to do this last week as a guest of a member - its a true major challenge of these tees with the 16th hole requiring a 250yrd carry to the fairway!
