Great Course

Fairways and greens in excellent condition. Stay on the fairways as the first cut is tough to recover from and the rough you have to take wedges to get out. A real test for any golfer

The course was in great condition, the pro shop was being decorated so there was nothing other than a few boxes of balls. There are some interesting holes and it is not too hard for a mid-high handicap player like me.

Nice course, very interesting carpet!

Played twilight after 2pm. The course is in good condition with the greens fairly true. I like the way that they are allowing the areas off the fairway and between contiguous fairways to grow in order to make individual holes more distinctive and also more of a test to hackers like myself! Most of the bunkers are fine although one or two are getting a bit thin of sand and I wish they would sort out the one at the first which has been GUR for months. The club house is very pleasant and clean and the people working at this club are very customer friendly. One word of warning about the carpet in the club house, if you have sensitive eyes then put on a pair of sunglasses as it looks like it used to be a prop in some kind of black and white psychedelic film from the 60s!

Lovely Early morning walk

Lovely course and friendly start. Course in really good condition. Pace of play was a little slow with a slower fourball a few groups ahead but overall not bad at all.

Real gem for this time of year

Great course and in good conditions. One green a little "[email protected] with water and bunkers centrally raked. One ofr two uneven and unkept tees but with the rain and conditions not bad. Leaves come into play only if you are off target and greens mostly free of the pesky green things.

Needs a little TLC

The tee boxes need a little attention. Greens are good however some areas have GUR. The fairways are recovering after the summer heat.

Great venue

The general condition of the course was excellent, greens, fairways and tee boxes. Well worth a visit, one of my favourite courses. Would like a driving range rather than a practice area.

Not sure it?s value for money

Bunkers are awful & have been all year, owner is more interested in making money from weddings than golf. Looks like some green have been ridden over by quad bikes by bloody hooligans.
