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.

Surprising

I was really pleasantly surprised at round of golf for ?20 n a Sunday morning. There must be a catch!

Course design and layout excellent. Downside below average greens and tee boxes, sand also a little hard. With effort this course has massive potential.

Decent track but the greens were poor. Service was pretty slow in the bar but there was a society in the clubhouse. At £20 with a buggy (not that there were any available) it’s decent value.

Poor but Cheap

The course has some good challenging hole layouts, but the course condition was poor. Didn't realise I was on the fairway at times as it was more like the rough. Greens were awful and one of my putts actually bobbled up about a foot off the floor. I understand it's winter and cheap but I have played cheaper courses in the winter which have been in a lot better condition.

We've played the course a few times before, and must say the course has been improving over the last few years. That being said, on this particular occasion (Early February) the greens were not in the best condition. I will be back there again in the future.
