The course is a challenging and tight traditional links of 6,044 yards in length with a Par of 69. Due to its proximity to the shoreline, an almost ever-present wind ensures that the course provides a good test of golfing ability. However, the shorter hitter of the ball will not suffer, as few of the holes require long carries from the tee to reach the fairways.

The first three and last three holes are in the undulating 'home' area close to the clubhouse. The 1st hole is a par 4 that demands an accurate tee shot, through a narrow pass between two sand hills, with gorse and bunkers left and out of bounds to the right. The green sits in a shallow plateau below the level of the fairway. The 2nd is a par 3 played from an elevated tee providing excellent sea views. The green is in two tiers and it is advisable not to play beyond the pin as this leaves a tricky downhill pitch or putt. The 3rd is a short par 4 played towards the sea with out of bounds to the left.

Longer hitters can drive the elevated green in favourable conditions. Approaching the green can be tricky and an accurate pitch is required to stay on the putting surface.
