needs some tlc on greens

Nice course, similar to Pedham Place in Kent, very open. That's said
the greens at Blakes are in a poor state, not been watered for a long time, it's like playing on a dried up river bed all cracked and bobbly.

This club has a great signature water hole mid round and is in an open parkland setting. It’s not overly challenging but has some nice views and is quiet. Greens were in good condition.

Good Value for money

Nice challenging course, with a variety of holes, some nice par 3's, fairways in good condition, bu the greens are patchy/bumpy in places and slow, but they were all consistent, so you soon got used to them. for the price it was a very enjoyable round on a Sunday. The clubhouse is nice but never seems to be staffed properly, we booked on Golfnow so pre-paid, when we went into the clubhouse everything was shut including the pro-shop. The only people around were 2 barmen who looked to be preparing for a function (they also do weddings etc). They seemed a bit surprised that they had a gold course!. No food available so we had breakfast at the local harvester around the corner

Hot!!

Lovely course not played for a while but the changes are very good. 7 and 8 are very good.
Will be back to play again very soon. Greens need to be watered more.

Course has so much potential

The set up is lovely and the price is great, with a little extra effort on the course this club could really be great! However, the price was good and it is great for someone still at the early stages.
