Great course

Played it in the autumn after it had rained and the course didn't drain well. However today it was in great nick. One of the more difficult courses, as evidenced by its high SR but, if you ignore that and just enjoy the course, it is great fun!

Tough course

Tough long course which will test the mid/high handicapper. Greens in great shape but some of the holes beginning to suffer from mud although hadn't been too wet. Probably better played in the Spring/Summer.

Great course

Lovely course, in great condition - fairways and greens were excellent when we visited (June 2020). It is a long course, takes a lot of energy!

Fantastic

A lovely course that is probably better than the description on their official site. Certainly a course of 2 halves with the first 9 having some serious hills both up and down before levelling out for the back 9. Some spectacular holes on the course with the 8th being the stand out for me. Amazing views all over the course too

A long walk...

An ok track with good greens, but some extremely long walks in between holes and a very slow pace of play ruined the day for me. Course suits a draw which was good for me!! If you have the option take a buggy!
