The course is still of championship stature,yet it looks more like a play and pay course. Greens need digging up. Bunkers need doing proffesionaly. Too many divots in the fairways. On the plus side long enough to make it a challenge. Overall not too sure this once highly rated golf course can and will ever come back to its full status. Driving range not of any standard. Practice nets ,you need a crash helmet to be able to hit the ball due to the fantastic idea of putting scaffolding pole across the back .club house looks like a holding room for the doctors. Food very poor and the cappuccino was of such bad taste I had to send it back three times.

after hearing so much about it i found it a bit of a let down. the greens weren't in very good condition, workman wouldn't stop to let people play through, there was no real second cut it was straight to the rough. the proshop was poor not much stock. the people where friendly enough.

A very long walk, very dis-jointed course. Played in November, greens very soft and in fairly good nick. Fairways well kept. Felt the pro-shop staff had a little attitude towards visitors. Nice halfway house and marshall were very polite.

Pleasant enough course, quiet well maintained, hotel staff let the experience down as it didn't feel very welcoming at all.

Reviewed Oct 19 2015 by Nick K - rated 3 out of 5
Our group of 16 stayed over the weekend 17-18 October 2015. The course was very good (but not exceptional), with well placed bunkers and greens rolling very well for the time of year with subtle contours. On the whole, if you are long enough off the tee to fly the traps, the course will yield opportunities. The group's consensus was that the course just lacked one or two "stunning" holes - although there was water around, it was never really in play, and the par 3s are underwhelming. The 18th was unspectacular as a finishing hole, a relatively straightforward short Par 4.

You can't rush to the tee - there is a 5 min walk from the practice green to the first tee. The walk between the 9th and 10th is also long, up through the carkpark, and then you have to cross the A34 between the 10th and 11th, and then back between the 17th and 18th. All in all, a lot of distance between greens and next tees. It was a long walk, and hard work carrying. Both rounds were slow, taking around 5hrs.

The hotel was pretty basic - a lovely old house, but our group was put in an annex, with single beds where you could feel every spring and bathrooms heated like saunas. No one got a good night's sleep. Food was very good, but service indifferent - there was a large event taking place on the Saturday night and certain members of staff made it very clear that we were something of an inconvenience for them. I would say they are not well set up for large groups.

In sum, the golf was enjoyable, but there are nicer courses and much better value out there for a 1 Night/2 rounds BBD @ £145pp.

Well maintained with fantastic greens. Very hilly though and a big walk between the 10th and 11th (I think those are the holes).

Greens and track in great condition - especially for October. Be prepared for a walk in between the 8th, 9th and 10th holes!
