    Played this cracking little 9 hole course on my way home to wales on Sat 21st april 2012.It's shoe horned in between the coast and the main road, and has breathtaking views of surrounding hills, The course with 9 holes and 18 tees was a real delight. The fairways and greens were excellent, especially considering the nature of the adjacent and surrounding coutryside. Any golfer visiting Skye would be advised to play this friendly little course. you won't be disappointed. Gwyn Stephens.Wales

    Played this course at the beginning of June in very windy weather. This was better than the VERY wet and windy weather the day before. We were made very welcome by Murdo who pointed us in the right direction and made an excellent cup of tea on our return. The course was delightful. The wind did make it very difficult to play some of the holes. The greens were very good and praise much be given to the green-keeper as the weather must made his job very diffcult.

    It was a pleasure to play this lovely nine hole course. The weather was great. The steward and stewardess, who had only arrived two days before and were still finding their feet, couldn't have been more helpful. We went in for refreshment after the first nine holes and really enjoyed the home made soup and sandwiches. It's been said that over 800 golf balls had been recovered from the beach that runs alongside the 2nd and the 6th holes..........well I put another one in there to start the next 800! Lovely little course with great views. Well worth stopping by.

    A beautiful spot on a spectacular little bay. Two tee boxes for each hole made playing the 'back nine' a bit different from the front. Well worth the time and travel to play, and a bargain.

    My 2 mates and I played our first ever round of golf on this course and enjoyed ourselves tremendously. The Lady and Gent who delt with us are a credit to the club and could not have been more helpful to us. The course is tight and challenging and is a credit to the club. If you are in Skye, play the course, smile, laugh and expect it
    to be windy. Thanks for a great afternoon.
