A very windy, yet sunny interval day. Greens aren't great but should improve in some dryer weather. Playing off tee boxes/mats is not my idea of fun but hey ho. Reasonable round for the first one of the year.

This is a decent course during the summer, but the course was just too wet on my latest visit. I would recommend playing here in the summer. Not now.

The greens have been recently hollow tined (again) which suggests (in your head) that they will be slow. Wrong! I kept leaving myself 5 to 10 footers coming back. For a public course, run by the council, it's not too bad, but I prefer Pine Ridge

Played on a friday lunch time and it took 5 hours. It didnt start very well when we went to pay and the guy behind the counter had a strop because we wanted to pay two green fees at the same time. I mean how hard is it to figure it out. There was a starter on the first tee which was good but i feel he should of been out on the course speeding people up?

The tee areas were really poor but the rest of the course in good condition.

At half way there is a cafe type area but that leads to more delays as we had to let a two ball in because they stopped for food. When i suggested going behind us and pairing up with the two ball behind us he laughed it off. Don't people pair up anymore?

Overall course average, staff rude and very very slow.

A good Society course - wide fairways, moderate rough and steady, even greens. Has enough variety to make it interesting, and some ponds and ditches across some of the fairways mean you have to think your way along some of the holes.
