Great course and superb value. Played course a couple of years ago and course is in much better condition now. Greens in better condition than some better known courses in area. Defo thinking of becoming a member.

9 hole course with no facilities, just a little office to pay your fees in. Lovely course to play though, very enjoyable. Noise in the background from the steel works all the time though, I couldnt cope with that all the time, I supposed you would get used to it. A bit confusing as to which tee box you play from on the back 9.
