‘I am new to the game of golf. I started relatively late , I continue to throw myself into lessons and I have found Castle Cove to be an ideal venue to improve my game.’ – Sue Ferguson – Avid golfer

‘I raised my family down the road, now in my 70’s with bad knees I have found I can walk the course at Castle Cove with out any trouble. I play twice a week and find it a suitable venue to invite friends from neighbouring areas.’ – Trevor Butler – Retiree, definitley not retired in golf.
