LOOKING GOOD

Barkway is looking very good the mower has a blunt blade i think leaving some longer grass on fairways green are the best they have been in a longtime and staff are always welcoming

A good challenge

A challenging course with a friendly atmosphere,club pro very helpful.
Defiantly worth a visit at a very good price for a round of golf.
They have this week changed some of the holes stroke index,so that has helped make things interesting.

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.
