  • 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.
