What the club says: Five Lakes Resort hosts two contrasting and mature 18 hole parkland courses which have gained an enviable reputation in this part of the world.
Lakes Course (Five Lakes Hotel, Golf & Spa) - This course, designed by Neil Coles, is used annually for regional PGA events and was the venue for the Nick Faldo Challenge. The course provides a testing examination for the better player as well as an enjoyable round for all standards. Water features strongly in the overall design of the Lakes Course, coming in to play on ten of the holes.
Links (Five Lakes Hotel, Golf & Spa) The Links course is renowned for its sweeping fairways and plush greens. With its strategically placed water hazards, sand bunkers and well guarded greens it proves an excellent challenge. Kept in superb condition all year round, the Links is slightly easier than the Lakes but a very enjoyable round nevertheless.
18 holes. Par 71. 6181 yards. Parkland.
The facilties are impressive but lack a bit of soul being a 'resort' and the drinks in the bar are really expensive!

Tight fairways and thick rough could make this a little less enjoyable for the Higher handicapped golfer.
Can't fault the condition of the course in regards to the fairways and greens. The bunkers however do need more sand in them!
If Your playing for the first time there are parts of the back 9 where it's not signposted that great, a bit of guess work needed.
Practicing facilities are spot on. Nice grass range and 2 putting greens.
The only real down side if the cost of a drink after, I ordered a pint of Coke........Â£3.90. Don't need to say much more,
I'd like to go back at some points, the place is amazing with all the other facilities it has there, but I'd take my own drink next time, ;-)
