A good course if your looking to improve your short game. Not particularly good value for money as you can get 18 holes at a better course for same price as this short 9 hole course.

Played Cocken Lodge last week, I'm only beginning my golf experience and this was my 3rd nine hole course I've ever played. Ilkeston (Pewit) and Haggerston Castle the other courses I've taken on before.
Read reviews and wanted to test myself on a par 29 course with a coverage of around 1,700 yards, it is a short course and some par 3's are only 140 yards and the two par 4's are a little over 230 yards.
I managed to go round the course in 36 with hole's 3 and 9 my favourites, overall I enjoyed the course but £10 for 9 holes in winter is a little excessive in my opinion, especially when you can play 18 holes in the North East area for something in the region of £12-£20, much better value for money to be had, staff very nice at Cocken and the green keepers raked all the sand bunkers so they take pride in their course which is always nice to see!

For beginners like myself this is a great course to start, well maintained and in good condition, not too demanding therefore easy to keep beginners nerves in check, nice little clubhouse and welcoming staff.

Good course for learning on as me and my mates did. Friendly and welcoming place to improve your game before you are ready to tackle all the great courses that are out there!\It is what it is....a 9 hole short course with two par 4\'s but well worth a go.
