  • This has to be the best golf course I've played in GB. I play of 12 so it was a bit of a challenge. Great to look at and great fun to play. Will be back next year for their open. The staff were excell...  more »

  • Don't play golf so can't comment on the course. The resteraunt is fantastic. Been there 3 times now. Great service, friendly staff and great food. Not particularly expensive considering. Will be going back in the future for sure! As for people moaning about the natural land scape - the area was covered in sand and dunes. Nobody was interested in the land scape until Trump announced he was building his course there. He BOUGHT the land from the state.
  • We had a great stay but when we were leaving one of the staff said "should you really be staying at this hotel" very rude, and it's not like we are poor, we drive a Porsche. And when we told the manager he said he would speak to the staff. Wouldn't recommended.
  • Trump is a genuis! He remolded the landscape better than God or Mother Nature ever could. Besides, farmers and fishermen are disgusting and live like pigs. Better to have fat, white guys roam the manicured fairways so they can hit a small white ball poorly. Hope they don't turn an ankle getting in and out of their expensive cart.
  • Stunning golf course! It's a real shame that people let their politics get in the way sometimes. I've been lucky enough to play golf on some of the worlds top courses, but nothing like this. At least 16 of the 18 tees will make you go "wow" as you looks down the hole. Make sure you take your camera up to the Black tees on 14 & 18! The views down the coast are fantastic. The lodge rooms are as you would expect from a 5* resort, and built to compliment the surroundings, but what makes this place even more special is the staff. The staff are amazing! Friendly local people who I dare-say probably get a bit of stick for working there, but do a fantastic job. Down-to-earth, nothing is too much bother! Yes, Donald's a tosser & his "branded" stuff for sale will make you laugh & It's a lot of money to play here (We where lucky to get a group deal), but if you get the chance, just do it! You won't regret it!
  • Worst golfing experience I've ever had. The course was nothing spectacular, I'd have more fun at a putt-putt course. Food was awful and extremely overpriced. The meat sauce on the pasta tasted and smelled like canned cat food. Service probably could have been decent if the staff didn't look so miserable and underpaid. I would not recommend this establishment. Negative stars would be more applicable.
