  • It is one of the finest golf courses in the world. We take full eyes on each hole. The beauty of the site is remarkable, the maintenance and the quality of the course are exceptional. No doubt, we of course are a monument of golf. The organization is at the top. The proshop to complete his equipment with a wide variety of products at reasonable prices. As for the view, you are at the club house on the course and even on the road that takes you, it's great entertainment. I forgot one detail, take a few bullets with you, it will always serve you especially if the wind is from the game... This golf course is an eater of bullets.

  • A beautiful golf course and surrounds. My wife and I had lunch there and renewed our wedding vows at the Stone of Accord. Considerable history and remnants of ancient ruins to be seen.Not just for golfers and the super rich.
  • Awesome place. Great food and wonderful staff. Top class service
  • The best golfing experience ever - from the arrival on the car park with the friendly staff picking up our bags, the suitcases delivered directly to the luxurious hotel rooms, an impeccable golfing experience on the course, clearing up weather towards the evening, delicious sea food in the restaurant in the evening ... we were blessed with an unforgettable golfing experience on The Old Head!!
  • Well worth the visit. You are allowed to enter and visit the clubhouse. Everyone was friendly and we could even buy coffee as visitors. There is a dress code, so wear proper pants and shirt.
  • If only I could spend my life here. Truly epic stuff. Photos do no justice. Every keen golfer needs to play the 4th and 12th.
