Established in 1922 the original course was laid out by that great architect H.S.Colt but World War II enforced many changes. Play was reduced to nine holes, the army authorities requisitioning the remainder. The rough track bisecting the course was made into a metalled road and the pleasant run by the sea became so popular after the war that play on the nearby fairways was both distracting and dangerous so it was decided to extend the course seaward. Mackenzie Ross who was invited to design the new holes, described the terrain as a ‘golfer’s paradise’ providing ample tests for the most skilful of players.
It is situated in a region of marram clad sand dunes, far more diversified than the old course. In more recent years there has been a widening of fairways and general clearance of the tall fern plus the repositioning of bunkers. The course is now a wonderful test for all standards of golfers and from the back tees a true championship test.
