The course is suffering from lack of professional maintenance,\as at the moment we have no greenstaff. and have to rely on part time\workers and volunteers.Amajor review is expected in the coming season\2015-2016 it is hoped that improvements will be made.

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.
