What the club says: Working with the natural beauty of majestic rolling parkland, with a wealth of mature trees and lakes, Thomas' brief was to create a course to be enjoyed by all who wished to play. With a range of tees on every hole, the higher handicapped golfer is not overwhelmed by too difficult a course, yet from the back tees in events which include the European Challenge Tour Championships, even the greatest from the professional ranks find this stunning course a challenging test of their skills.

An outstanding golf course in superb condition. Would recommend this as a "must play" course in the south/south west, to any serious golfer...All staff exceptionally friendly/helpful and great food & beer post golf.

Beautiful, and challenging

A gorgeous course - beautifully & immaculately maintained. View of the White Horse hill from the first tee. Some very acute angled dog-legs, and plenty of bunkers for the unwary. Not many water hazards, but the ones that are there will challenge you. It was a sunny, humid day on the day we played. A really terrific 18 holes, well worth £40 green fee.

Awesome

Outstanding course. Even with temporary greens, it was a fantastic evening's golf! The dry weather had no impact and the fairway's were lush!

Good course

A good course with very well kept fairways and bunkers. The greens were not quite up to the same standard, being not as smooth as I expected. Putts were thus more testing than they should have been. Overall though it was a fair test with some interesting challenges.

Beautiful

What a stunning course. The attention to detail around the course is awesome, was a pleasure to be there. Stunning views, babbling streams, tree lined adges, even the approach by car through some of Cornwall's most enchanting wooded roads. Was quite a soggy round and will come back in the better weather.

Great course and Hotel

Very nice course, great layout with some interesting holes, was a little wet under foot and green a little scruffy, but may be due to time of year.

An enjoyable challenge

Golfshake Team ReviewPlayed here as part of a corporate event and really liked the course. It's long and difficult with lots to think about on the way. The nick of the fairways and greens was great though the greens were a devil to read. Staff were great and if you travel to this course you'll not be disappointed with the investment in time. Thoroughly recommend fed!!

Too difficult for medium handicappers. Bunkers unfairly placed in front of almost all greens and both sides of almost every drive. Course management of typical hotel course - over booked resulting in 5hrs round!
