The Dunes Course, designed by Bernhard Langer, former US Masters champion and ex-captain of the European Ryder Cup team, together with European Golf Design, is set in diverse natural scenery, with spectacular sea and river views, where tall dunes divide a number of the holes adjacent to the golden beach.

Both golf courses have been accolated, as “Best Newcomers”, in 2014 and “Best Service” in 2015 by the organisation, “World of Leading Golf”.
