Kids in competitions on saturday who cant play and hold up play
Held up by children: club don't seem to care when they place children who don't have sufficient experience to play in competitions and needed adults with them

Children's rounds hold up play
Club had an apparent competition on with children that held us up considerably. These children were not to the standard they should have been in competition on a Saturday and some were dressed in tracksuits. The ones in front of us who had adults with them who didn't encourage any quicker play: if anything they knew less about golf than the kids and encourages slower play, leaving gear all over the course when putting etc
I called up the clubhouse from the course but they weren't interested at all.

Some interesting doglegs on this course and plenty of trees to slide under. Also some nice wide fairways (not that I hit many) Greens in good condition but not excellent
Nice clubhouse that does a very good breakfast

Great layout and great variety of holes. Can be tight in places and is a fairly tough course.
Greens always in excellent condition however visiting from April onwards and you will always catch it in great condition!

The course was in good condition for the time of year, albeit slightly muddy in places. Particularly on holes 1-4. However, all in all the golf course very nice with some challenging holes. I'll definitely play again when the better weather comes.
