Played on bank holiday monday, pro shop not open till 9am despite taking our 730 booking so unable to get a score card, fortunately managed to get one from one of the members. Front 9 ok, but 3 holes had had the flags stolen and in there place was a twig from nearby trees!! greens on back 9 terrible and parts of course were appalling where tractors been through. I was looking forward to playing here from reports from friends who had previously played here but i wont be rushing back.

Nice course, fairways and greens in great condition but the tee boxes not the best and have suffered with the rain. Good solid test of anyone's game & worth the trip.

Pleasant surprise

Due to bad weather the course we were due to play was closed. After a quick ring round we were lucky to be offered a tee time as visitors early Sunday morning. Great course. The views were stunning with a nice mix of holes. Be prepared for a long walk up & down hills.

Fantastic Views

A challenging course which we have played a couple of times before. Course was in good condition and there are some stunning holes with background surrounding countryside. Best played in calm conditions unless you are an extreme golfer but the back 9 whilst hilly, are well worth the extra effort.

Fantastic course and a real challenge especially in the wind. Greens run true and are in great condition. Clubhouse and facillities leave a lot to be desired but well worth a visit to play the course.
