I play this course quite regularly, and my round in early April 2017 is easily the worst condition I've seen the course presented in. The 2nd tee seemed to be closed (for no reason as far as I could tell) so we were off a very small mat, which was far too close (distance wise) to the 1st green. This was not the only mat!!!, in fact of the 5 par 3's, only one was NOT off a mat. The first par 5 was also played off a mat, and was shortened by around 80 yards, and this hole off the proper tees is usually one of the more challenging driving holes. Bunkers were pretty dreadful (as usual I should add), looked like they hadn't been raked regularly, and had too little sand in them. I also found the greens to be quite solid, and not showing any kind of pitch mark, as if they had not been watered for some time.
Generally I enjoy playing here, but this was disappointing for a spring start after a particularly mild winter - the course should have been far better prepared.
On the plus side, the food was good, but as a guest of Bedfordshire Captains Society, I cannot comment on cost/value for money.

The course was in fair condition with the greens the best part. Putting green used for practice was not usable.

A local course for me, so I get to play a number of times each year, and I'm always happy to play here.

The course is generally in good condition, although there were a number of hole closures over the winter months. Greens are invariably quite fast, even when it is, or has been raining. There can also be some quite tricky pin positions on slopey greens (15, 17 and 18 are good examples). Fairways are reasonably generous, so not too narrow for those of us who are not always arrow straight off the tee. Bunkers are not the best, but let's face it they are 'hazards', so try to avoid them.

Clubhouse services are good, but we were guests of Bedfordshire County Golf, so possibly we were looked after better than usual.

Great views from the course

A friendly & well run club. Lots of slopes and a few tight greens and fairways to navigate.

Played in the Bedfordshire County Senior Championships, and the greens had been set up at 10.0 on the stimp meter. They were very fast, but running steadily and true. Avoided the bunkers, but they looked like they have done some improvements since I last played the course. Tees and fairways were all good, and with not much of a breeze, we all should ahve been scoring quite well. Food was very good, and all in all we were well looked after.

This is a nice mature course, not hugely difficult but certainly with some challenging holes. It is hilly in parts with some very steep up and down fairways. Unfortunately there are at least two crossover points where it is necessary to give way to other players on other holes, and some of the fairways are quite close to each other such that you need to be keeping a watchful eye out on what's going on around you. This is something that I, personally, feels detracts from a golf course and is the reason why I'm only giving this course a 'Good' score. Other than that the club is very organised and claims a full range of coaching facilities. The club house is excellent and the pint of Dunbar I had had been kept well in the cellar. Of particular note is that fact that person who served me at the bar actually emptied my crisps into a bowl before giving me them - something so rare I can't remember the last time it happened to me: impressive!

The course was wet but the greens fast. No water hazards, but plenty of others.
Some great looking holes and plenty to keep you thinking. Will be playing again if I get the chance.
