Verdict

While I've clearly taken a shine to the front side of this course, the back nine is just as spectacular with a couple more delightful par-3s to whet your appetite, particularly the 18th, requiring a sweetly struck long iron to find the dancefloor.

The back-nine sees you climb the hill on the northern side of the clubhouse. A tight tenth hole with OB on either side is followed by several forgiving numbers for the less accurate golfer.

A series of par-4s with very much a links feel about them follow, with strategically-positioned bunkers and water hazards to really test your mental game.

The rolling countryside of the Championship Course ends with a glorious par-3 which starts above the resort hotel and finishes below it. I pulled a long iron from my bag and 30 seconds later my ball was eight-feet from the pin and a birdie-two for a round of 77 was the perfect way to end the day.

This course holds a very special place in my heart. It's a natural beauty and I will simply never tire of it. It's all about strategy and plotting your way around the course. I would certainly recommend getting a buggy, however, as the back nine gets very hilly at times!

Away from the course, the hotel amenities on offer are exactly what a golfer craves from friendly staff, large bar area and pro shop, swimming pool and spa treatments and spacious bedrooms. You also have the historic Dartmouth town minutes down the road to relax after the round.
