Each hole runs through a landscape of high dunes, the fairways are flat and fair and from the tee there is generally a clear view of the task ahead.

Each hole is memorable, from The Open Championship tee the 13th measure 498 yards, one of the longest par 4s in championship golf. Visitors to the course can walk in the footsteps of many of golfs legends, among them Open Winners, Peter Thomson, a double winner at Royal Birkdale, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino, Johnny Miller and Tom Watson. On the 15th hole, a plaque commemorates Arnold Palmers great shot in difficult weather conditions, on the way to his Open win 1961.

The clubhouse is built in a distinctive art-deco style and stands overlooking the 18th green. The enormous bay window in the lounge gives a spectacular view over the course and it is the only place to be on the last afternoon of The Open.
