A challenging course for short hitters as most holes are long. Fairways are a little scruffy, so played preferred lies even though summer, but greens were very good. For ?10 for midweek very good value.

Good value for money midweek at ?10 for 18 holes. Lovely layout, long course and fairly forgiving. Greens are pretty bad and lots of pitch marks left in them from players not repairing. Overall good value for money.

Good value

Fairways could do with being cut shorter and some of the greens a little roller on them.
Friendly club with an on site snack bar.

great course

Had a lovely round here. A great course with lots of tough holes, well-placed bunkers and water hazards in tricky places. Greens are well kept and true. Some of the par 4s are very long, not an ideal course for short hitters. But there are also some easier ones. Trees have grown up and all in all a great course, fantastic value, and seems to be really maturing.

Great course would play again

Great Hospitality Nice Challenging course More signage needed between holes as you can get lost and play the 8th instead of the 3rd The Greens could be in a better condition Cart ran out of fuel.

But overall great course to play..

Thanks
