ALthough we played this in January the greens were a disgrace with hardly any grass on them at all- with clumps of completely bare mud patches.

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!

Good Course which I play often. Greens were very quick on this occasion. My putting was atrocious as you can tell from my stats...

Played here with a friend whilst staying at the hotel. Course in good condition given the recent dry weather. Greens were true and rolled well. Some of the rough had been cut back since I'd played at a similar time last year which was helpful. Mask required in the pro shop which was also one way, both of which were no problem, though shame you couldn't look round. Friendly welcome and nice food and pint in golf bar post round. £50 for the round was reasonable.

Worthwhile visit

Blustery afternoon on a course that is always difficult.
First cut of rough was disappointingly long which made a tough course tougher and cost some time searching.
Otherwise course in good nick but will improve as it dries out for the summer.

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.

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.

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!!
