What the club says: The Valley Course (9 Hole par 27)

This 9 Hole par 3 course is without question one of the best designed and maintained in the country. Lakes, bunkers, streams and mature trees provide an interesting and fun layout. It is a great place to start to learn the game, but also a challenge to the experienced golfer.

The Weald Course (9 hole par 35)

Top professionals play here because it's so good - so do us lesser golfers as well.

A great course with some great holes. You'll want to play it again and again - always the sign of a good course. There is a good balance of holes, some long, some short, but testing all parts of your game and making you think.

The course is always in very good condition. It could do with a few more bays in the driving range as very limited. (Round played: Jun 2014 - Score: 39 Handicap: )

Played 31/12/13, recently played Hainaut lower and Priors, and of the those and Hobbs Cross. The latter wins hands down for quality. All courses were played after very heavy persistent rain.
But for some reason, Hobbs Cross was presented in near immaculate condition.
Tee areas on Par 3 and longer course are in fab nick for wet December , and the greens are solid, true and reward good putting. I had at least 4 putts over 10ft holed on the longer course.
Only two criticisms, first the bunkers. Flooded with rain water, and secondly other players.
Please repair divots taken, it really is bad golf etiquette. Every hole the fairways had large gouges where hackers had dug big divots and hast repaired. Same with pitch marks on the green.
If the green keeping team here don't get a medal for their efforts i don't know what deserves one.
Score 31 on Valley, and 46 on Weald. handicap 18

This is my favourite course which consistes of 2 x 9-hole course one is a short course and the other a long course. Both courses are well kept with good drainage and I tend to play the short course most weeks just to keep my eye in. Staff very friendly and we have got to know them as we go regularly.
