The course was in very good condition.The course is a very stiff challenge for high handicapped golfer
All so I was very disappointed wiith the cost the green fees are advertised as £24.00. but we were charged £18.00 per person even with a 2 fore 1 voucher .

The course was generally in good condition but playing off the yellows the Tee boxes are shocking. No place to hit the ball on the level. If this is deliberate then this makes the course more difficult. Bacon roll and coffee for £7.20 was a bit pricey!

Not Sure

Fairways in poor condition to many scars and bare patches. Greens very dry and unreceptive to high balls they just bounce and run off. Not the best course I?ve played but for ?15 (tee off times) it was ok

We played two rounds during the weekend 11th and 12th Sep.2016. Good course for healthy seniors. (Never lost a ball). But if you need to use a buggy avoid this place. All their buggies are beaten up old petrol driven wrecks. The grabbing clutches are a whiplash risk for anyone with a dodgy back.

Quite a tight course as they have tried to fit a golf course into a small plot of land. Course is in good nick with the fairways and greens holding up well.

Not a great course with too many up and down holes. Greens have never been very good here and the bunkers are usually full of water over the winter. Its also quite expensive for the quality of the course. However there a few very nice holes including the short par 3 9th and the challenging par 5 15th. The Clubhouse is very picturesque with an oak panelled lounge and the pro shop is well stocked and friendly.

Greens in good condition, some of the fairways could have done with some more grass on them but overall course in pretty good condition.

HILLY BACK 9

Definitely a course of 2 halves ! The front nine are varied and interesting - the back 9 very hilly and "samey". Excellent greens.
