What the club says: The course measures a relatively modest 5542 yards. But don’t be fooled by its length. Although it has a par of 66, the SSS is 68 and the course boasts some of the trickiest Par 3s and demanding Par 4s in the country. In recent years, the club has completed an ambitious greens-refurbishment programme, bringing them up to USGA standard.

Booked over tee off times. Don’t think I would pay £40 for a round though. Course was good an a decent test for a beginner. Some holes are unforgiving.

Definitely be back.

Course was in great condition and was excellent value for money. If I hadn't got a deal though, I doubt if I would have paid the full green fees. Preferred the front 9, the two back-to-back par 3s at 15 and 16 crossing over each other didn't do it for me, but 18 is a lovely hole. Course looked lovely in the autumn colours.

Fantastic. Played on a sunny day in late August and it was a joy. Short course with quite a few par 3s but they are really lovely looking holes. Course is still a bit tricky in places, but I didn't think it was an overly difficult one. Greens are immaculate and the course in general looked great. Lovely surroundings.

Had lunch in the clubhouse after which was nice. Received a good welcome all round. Would definitely play again and recommend without hesitation.

We selected the course because it was so conveniently close to the airport. So we were in a bit of a hurry. I really enjoyed playing here. The landscape is breathtaking (especially if you're from The Netherlands). Greens in superb condition, friendly staff and members. Some of the holes are 'challenging'. I am sure we will come back here. Hidden Gem.

The course was more difficult than I expected, and there are a number of holes which can catch you out easily. I found the rough incredibly difficult to play out of, esp around the greens. Found the front nine decent enough, but the back nine very pleasant. Would play again.

Booked last minute through teeofftimes and got it for an outstanding £16 each for a 2 ball. The course was in exceptional condition and the greens are as good as i've played this year. The lack of any par 5s is a bit strange and the occasional crossing over of holes also is slightly strange but as we were strangers to the course it probably helped us out with navigation. Didn't spend any time in the clubhouse as were in a rush, so can't really comment on that, but the pro shop looked a little bare although the pro was very helpful. Will certainly be back.
