The pros: Beautiful course, visually stunning. The water is elegantly carved, and you feel at times like you're on a top quality PGA course. Every hole is unique and it is a pleasure to play.
The cons: The fairways aren't bad, but are a little bare in places leaving for some very tight lies where your tee shot really deserved better. You can also tell that it is a holiday venue, as a number of pitch marks remain unrepaired, and very few people seem to fill in their divot marks on the par 3 tee's!
The bits that depend on what you like: It's a short and easy course, bar the odd bit of water here and there you are rarely heavily punished for an errant shot (short tree's, not much out of bounds etc). The bunkers are mostly very shallow as well, so even a beginner can get out without too much pain.

Overall I think it is everything you could dream of as a high handicap player and will allow you a beautiful round of golf without the frustration of scrambling around the tree's on a 440yard par 4 with bunkers as deep as the ocean, but it probably won't challenge enough for the low handicappers. (hence as a mid-high handicapper, I personally enjoy it when I want a more casual round!)

I have been playing this course for a number of years. This week we had to compliment the green staff as they have now got the course up to a very good standard.

Cannot comment on cost as we were here for the weekend on a package deal. Hotel prices for food and drink, which even with 20% discount was expensive.

Before playing the course I spoke with a local resident who advised getting a stroke saver as there are a few blind tee shots. I was also told that there were originally only 9 holes, but a further 9 were added following the purchase of a plot of land next to the course. The added holes are somewhat narrower, and mostly involve quite short par 4's.

Course was in good condition and greens were receptive and true (a little slow because we had rain for most of our round). Some tricky greens (leaning away from the tee/fairway), which would make a second round easier I think, as you know what to expect. Fairways were quite hard, and it was felt this was because run-offs had been built into the course to take water away, but with a hot summer, the water it did receive ran away before the 'higher' ground got wet enough to keep the grass green, or to keep the ground soft enough to take a divot.

The Hotel itself was quite impressive - one of our party described it as being like Hogworts. Never having seen any Harry Potter film I cannot say if he is right!

Despite the Fairways suffering as most courses are with the weather. The greens are in terrific condition.

The rough has been well maintained and the ground staff have done an excellent job.

Facilities are excellent. Driving range, pitching green and putting green ( oh and the Bunkers Bar ) . Are all close to the well equipped pro shop.

Boggy but Great Design

Had a round here while I was staying close by on a weekend away. The staff were great in the club house and the range was well equipped. On the course there were some holes which were fine, but some were a real mud bath, especially the 15th. However, we've had some real wet weeks recently so this is expected. Very tight on some holes so Driver was only used a couple of times. I would love to come back and play in the summer when its dry as it would play completely different and the greens would really have some bite!

Tricky Little Course, Great fun

A great little course and hotel. The course is relatively narrow and definitely favours accuracy over distance. Went here on a golf weekend and had a great time. Nice bar and clubhouse. The staff were excellent and really friendly. We all enjoyed it and would come back for more. Definitely worth a go.

Great golf break

Dunston Hall is a challenging, yet pleasing round of golf. The first hole is a 'heartbreaker', a 90 degree dog leg left short par 4. The green surrounded by reed beds. After that you can regain confidence or continue to play more heartbreak golf. The greens are very green and a ball delivered from height will stay on the putting surface, take your pitch repairer with you. That said the greens are firm to putt. The fairways are a little scorched and threadbare, but good for fairway woods.

Dunston Hall Delight

Played this course as part of an annual golf trip, 2 nights and 3 rounds of golf.
Very dry conditions but the course did not disappoint.
Very tight and tree lined with water abound and plenty of bunkers (some crater like), fast greens. Great course design and not one hole is the same, one or two longer walks between holes by overall the course is quite short, give the Driver a rest or only if you are chasing.
Great thought required and tough shots hitting approach shots from awkward lies. Would come again for sure.
