What the club says: The parkland course is sited on the world's first nature reserve. Charles Waterton a pioneering Victorian naturalist created the nature reserve in 1820 and he dedicated his life to preserving the local wildlife in this area, and today we still share the park with all manner of wildlife. The golf course was designed by Simon Gidman and opened in 1995.
The design cleverly exploits the 200 acres available, creating a spaciousness not found in many courses set in smaller areas. The par 72 course has been built to extremely high standards with USGA specification greens and tree-lined fairways. The club prides itself on the condition of the course especially its fairways and greens, the greens are in play all year round.

A good course and proved to be quite tricky. Greens were good but a little slow.

Very good, the fairways are the best that we have played this year, greens just has good, a long course 6200 of the yellows, some holes like the 3rd, on a big slope and long, a buggy would be the best way to play it, well worth a try.
