Very nice course. Condition is ok for this time of the year. Wide fairway for driver. although if you missed the fairway, some big trees are waiting.

Great course. It is forever improving and i will be returning again. The members were welcoming and i was greeted by the secretary on arrival. Pro shop staff were friendly and even showed me around. Great service from the bar staff and kitchen staff also. Along with a fantastic meal and views from the clubhouse. Great deal at £35 for 18 holes and lunch!

Good course in generally good condition.. greens are in good condition and well looked after so sadly that does mean the odd temp in winter!

I have played here a few times and if i get more time to play would join here as it is a friendly club - once you get to know the real people.

Downside? there are a few moaners and they need a spike bar)

First time round here. Worth playing at curently reduced green fee of £30. Many bunkers on the course, some of which are blind from the tee, and several round a lot of the greens. Course was in very good condition and enjoyed going round. (Round played: Sep 2014 - Score: 102 Handicap: 18.8)

Excellent course despite recent poor weather. There on a society event so excellent value too. Quite tight but not over long. More than enough holes where the driver can stay in the bag.
