No care for any etiquette or rules

This is my local course so I?ve no choice but to keep playing. But my god are they frustrating.

They don?t care about slow play, they?ll let anyone hack around and hold groups up.

At today?s round, we were stacked up 3 deep on each tee box. So imagine my surprise when I got to tenth hole and they?d let TWO, yes TWO four balls out to start on the back 9 (at 930 on a Sunday!!!) It meant we were now stacked 5 deep at each tee. It was a disaster.

I went straight back to the sullen moody little man at the starters hut, and he told me there were late arrivals so instead of holding up the first tee he?d seen them off on the back 9 and make it 10x worse!

Utterly shocking. They do this sort of thing all the time. Sick of random groups appearing in front of me!

The fairways are also patchy, with about 30% of your lows being On a dry mud patch.

Good Greens that take spin!!

You can land a shot on from 200 on the green will take the spin. Many other local courses encourage bump and run shots even on par 3s. Nothing is more frustrating than watching a 60? pitch front of the green and skip off the back!! Fairways were fine. Very open so little risk of losing balls and fairly straightforward holes to negotiate. You should be able to better your handicap on this course if you play well.

It's ok....just. Wouldn't rush back. Not a patch on Downshire. It's a links course in the middle of the country. Very windy although the forecast said 'gentle breeze'

Poor conditions for price

Expected big things for the price, greens were horrendous, not sure how you manage to get large chunks of rubble onto them, obviously very rushed to get the course open and visitors are paying the price, won’t be returning

Course in good condition

I've played here a number of times and the corse was in as good a condition as I have seen it for some time. The green were quick and true, the bunkers have raked sand and the fairways were cut. A good thing is they now seem to take control of the rough and you tend to find any wayward balls.

Expensive for conditions

Greens are poor tees are not flat looks like greens were hollow tined then not dressed so very bumpy they are trying to recoup lost revenue as fast as possible at players cost. Insread of furloughing staff should have kept them on to work on course easy to self isolate on golf course.

Lovely to play, simple with challenges but enjoyable course. I enjoy it, it's basic in some ways, but there's a range (recently updated with new mats and lights). Practice greens etc. worth visiting.

Not worth the money - poor conditions

Do not part with your 35 pounds for a round here... highly overpriced given the current state of the course (it could be due to the lack of maintenance during lockdown), but the greens are pitch marked resulting in your ball bobbling. Uneven tee boxes were surrounded by discarded beer bottles, cans, and coffee cups (clearly from the previous day as we played early on a Sunday), which the Greenkeepers hadn't bothered to pick up that morning. It is also playing very slow currently as the tee times don't appear to be adequately spaced out. The actual course layout is quite picturesque, so it's not all doom and gloom!

Don't waste your money

This golf course is rubbish! It's not in good condition at all. The tees aren't level, and the greens are bumpy. Don't part with your hard earned money to play this course.

was very pleased with the course condition, Greens could do with some TLC very bumpy but overall good course. Teetime were 2 mins apart so the course was very backlogged and the pace of play was extremely slow
