Most Helpful Review

The course is well kept all year round , the greens are excellent , & the course overall is challenging. But the car park facilities & clubhouse are very poor, & do not give a good first impression - Aug 9 2016

Nice reliable course
Nice course although needs to sort something out about a bar because the pub at the side is the only place to get a drink & some food afterwards but the landlord does not deserve the custom as won't allow parking!! would be empty all week if not for golfers..

Tight testing course but a very honest course in which every hole sits well , the fairways are forgiving but some greens offer a chance to test your short game , both are extremely well kept .
Staff are friendly but course can get busy and slow at peak times !..score 88 ( handicap 23.5)

I played this course when it not very well established in the 70s . Now it is becoming a good municipal course , reasonably dry most of the year a good test of golf for most players. however the tees are a bit naff, well worn , tee mats are in use, but could be better managed, to give grass tees more time to recover along with approach areas, I realise it is always a problem with a popular course. so in general a good course to play .
