Great start to the year!

Friendly and in excellent condition. A magnificent effort after the variable weather in 2021 so far. Good value for money, used a round from my pack of 20 bought £240. Pro shop well stocked.

Course is the best one to play when the weather has not been kind although the greens on the par three are quite small when you consider the approach shots needed. It seems to be the busier one in the area and reflect sometimes on the pace of play because is always crowded. Not the longest course either but it is challenging. Needs a bar as pub is not very welcoming to golfers.

Pleasant surprise

First round here with my brothers and thoroughly enjoyable. The course is enough of a challenge and was in very good condition following a few days of rain. Friendly players and staff, with good etiquette shown by others on course. A steady three and one half hours for a threeball on an unfamiliar course. Will definitely play here again. The adjacent pub is very well stocked and serves decent food. They even let golfers park at the top of the car park which is very much appreciated. If you have not played here, give it a go - you may be pleasantly surprised.

Good in bad weather

Not the worse course ever but not the hardest either, but drains well so good fall back during wet weather.

Winter Beauty and Relatively Easy

This is a course which is very popular in winter as it drains so well. Some straight forward holes and a couple of challengers in 10 and a couple more on the back nine. Is busy at weekends and during peak times, but worth a visit. They don't do food but there is a very good pub right next door which does great food options. Plus although its in Sheffield its easy enough to get to in rush hour being not far off the M1.

Awesome course will be back

Been a member previously at this course. Always the best in the city for drainage and even though it was very damp and soggy it was a great experience, players repairing divots and pitchmarks. Joined as a member so will be aiming to bring that handicap down when the weather gets better too.

A decent council course that isn?t too muddy in the winter months. Very small greens that require accurate shots into. Are very good putting surfaces in the summer months. It?s a good layout too with pleasant views of the surrounding countryside.

First visit in a while and course looks in good nick, not a bad course but lacks a clubhouse. The pub next door is good but not the same. Book online to save money as it is a little expensive for what it is.
