Scruffy.

Very poor tee beds. Greens slow and hairy, with holes in some. Poor bunkers. Some poor fairways. Nice lay out. Not too long but you need to plot your way around it. Good practice facilities with a small covered range, although you have to walk halfway down the first hole to get to it. Good social distancing and hygiene measures. Lovely pint of Estrella Galicia afterwards.

Meridian's new owners have all kinds of plans to improve the course and clubhouse but after a year ownership hardly anything has changed. The bunkers are still almost without sand, the greens terribly slow and damaged, the fairway are just playable bit it all looks rather poor. Practise facilities have new range balls but mats are ancient, no chipping or pitching on a practise green available and the same has to be said for the practise bunker which has more stones in it than a gravel. In short, the course layout is very nice and well established but not worth the membership money.

Played here April 19.

I've always enjoyed playing Peter Alliss designed courses as they are good fun ,playable & well designed .However ,this was an exception & i didn't think it was that good.

Although it's not hilly it's a long walk round .The greens were the slowest i've see this winter & i play a different course each week .You had to push the ball at the hole .
Also ,the par 3s were uninspiring ,most of the par 5s you couldn't go for in two because the hole narrowed down and / or there was too much trouble near the green negating the effect of a good drive .Down 18 i hit a good drive but then just had to bunt an 8 iron down the fairway.On the sharp dogleg par 4 9th i hit a drive that carried the stream but then ran through the fairway into the rough & then couldn't go for the green .
Flagsticks didn't have the smaller distance flags on them & were not colour coded & some tee yardage posts were actually behind the tee instead of being alongside it & surprisingly i didn't notice anything on the course signifying the meridian line.
The pluses were that it is quite a peaceful place to play , there is a lot of gorse around the course which gives it visual appeal ,i liked holes 2, 8 ,11 & 14 & it 's quite nice sitting on the clubhouse terrace ( although the pub style picnic tables weren't very comfortable ) but overall there are too many shortcomings here .
Also ,although we played on the cheap day Monday it's overpriced for what it is & although we had a bit of a trek to get here i wouldn't return to play it again .

Reviewed Mar 28 2014 by GM - Cambridge - rated 2 out of 5
The biggest assest at this course is the course. The greens can be hit and miss, with the cups often crowned. Overall a good testing round of golf especially on a windy day, the long Par 3s are testers.
The welcome from the Manager is variable, some days it is difficult to get an anknowlegment from him. Shop staff good, Girls in Half way house good.
Food over priced, you may want to try the Blue Lion in Hardwick just up the road, a lot better. Be careful of the out of date soft drinks being sold in the half way house. Generally the soft drinks are over priced £2 a bottle. Drop into Tescos before you arrive. In Summary. Good challenging course. Some Staff members need to go on a customer care course. Food and drinks over rated and over priced.

Nice course with a couple of mad holes

Good course, plenty of room, but a couple of mad holes (the 9th in particular being barking). Signs saying play the hole as designed are only appropriate is the hole is well designed. Forcing a vicious high slice to get over mature trees to a fairway is mad, and I can understand why the 240 yard straight option may be preferred by anyone under 40. In fact it’s so silly that they need a local rule allowing the ball to be dropped on the far side of the ditch. Otherwise decent condition, though rather spongy greens.

a thinkers course

long course but not designed for the bombers. you have to plot your way round taking driver sparingly. the greens could do with some maintenance, they needed a good cut and rolling, but overall a good course would recommend

Played this course several times before. Always in decent condition, today was probably the best I have seen. Not that I did it justice.

A nicely designed course with plenty of ditches to worry about. The bunkers need more sand and the greens needed cutting as they were very slow but overall worth a visit
