Played Channels for the first time with a friend and was extremely impressed with the course, clubhouse and facilities. Every hole has it's own challenge, especially the holes with the water hazards!!. The front 9 seeemed a bit easier to me than the back 9, but all the holes had fairways and greens in fantastic condition. I'd say it's a very fair course - if you make a mistake then you are normally able to try for your par with a good recovery shot. Obviously the water is what makes this course very interesting in my opinion - a reasonable golfer should be able to clear the water on all the holes that feature it, BUT if you don't hit the ball quite right then you will be taking a drop ....so take plenty of balls with you. Handicap 22 - went round in 89.

Played here today with three friends for the first time for three years and I must say the new lay out is no where near as good as the previous 27 hole design. There was a lot of GUR and the greens were in fairly poor condition, we went out early but the greens were really bumpy. In fairness we have had some rain, however, with all the courses in the surrounding area it isn't worth £45 per round. We had some 2 for 1 otherwise wouldn't have played. I will not be rushing back, it was a cracking place but sadly spoiled now.

This course was undoubtedly better before the recent layout changes and is now pretty boring par four after par four in parts. There are still a couple of stunning holes but i would not now go back and it has much less appeal - it is no longer worthy of its inflated green fee. Following a bucket of overnight rain the course was playing long (though the greens were still good) and balls were plugging in the fairway on most hits. There seemed also to be a lack of care for the course with some of the worst (and most) pitch marks I have ever seen!! I didn't find the members or staff particularly friendly and would point potential visitors and societies elsewhere!

Mature parkland course, with undulating fairways with water hazards.
The first few holes are very straight forward.
After the 4th the course gets interesting as you go round.
Fairways, bunkers & greens were in fantastic condition.
Large practise area with a bunker, driving net, putting, chipping green & friendly staff.
At £45 mid week is pricey, but using 2-4-1 vouchers made it more affordable at £22.50 to play.
This is my sort of course I definitely be a member.
Quite simply one of the best courses I have ever played.

Beautifully designed course, with some very tricky holes. Greens always play true, and the general condition of the course is always in top condition. A great course for the mid to low handicapper.

Course in good shape. Lots of work going on but doesn't interfere with your round. No clubhouse for a warm drink.

Very nice little course

Only a 9 hole but very nice much like the old course. Fairways and greens are spot on. A couple of the holes are a bit tight especially if you hit a wayward tee shot. Will be back

A nice golf course

Although only a 9 hole course with no par 5's its a pleasant course to play with some good holes especially if you are a learner golfer, it doesn't have too many challenges apart from a cross wind and the choice of club. Greens and fairways in good condition and pre-round practice facilities are plentiful. As it is a 9 hole it can be very busy at peak times with players playing 18 and you can be held for a while but if that is not a problem then a quick 9 is ideal

I became a member

I have just recently started playing golf again as I have played once in the past 12 years. Absolutely loved this course. Loved it so much myself and my 10 year old son became members. The only criticism is it?s a bit short and it?s hard to tell where the kids tees are. Other than that it?s top drawer. How lovely the course is and how welcoming, helpful and kind the staff are was the main reason me and my son joined and the price is real value for money.... just wish my scorecard made better reading

9 Hole Wonder

I use this course and driving range facilities to practice my game. The greens on this course are the star. True, excellent condition and very receptive. Quick to play with shorter holes you have to plot your way round. Several longish par threes are a real challenge. Ideal for an afternoon with a couple of buckets of balls, loads of targets and new power tees that present the ball to you. Good putting green proper chipping ground and a cheeky 9 holes.
