With membership limited to just 400 and their invited guests, the course is proud to declare itself a 5-star venue that is prestigious, unique, and exclusive. The R&A and the Top 100 Rankings are in agreement – using it for Regional Open Qualifying and awarding it a place in a few of the Top 100 Lists.
