KBjargo – Love this course. The holes are very different which makes the round interesting and exciting. I never get bored playing at Don Cayo. And the restaurant on is top notch – perfect to sit and admire the view while eating excellent food. Highly recommend it
P Wing – We played this course as a pair twice in our recent two week holiday and what a great course it is. Although a 9 hole course they have 2 different tees for each hole which does make it 2 different 9s. They had a good offer of 2 green fees and a buggy for 98euros on a Sundaymorning. You have to leave enough time to get there as the route is rather up and down.
