The course was in poor condition due to the amount of rain.This is understandable but to be charged £30 to play on a bog is simply not acceptable

NIce, but......

This is an ok course. Winds it's way though some nice countryside. But, there's no wow factor at all. No signature hole that we could pick out. It's a bit samey for most of the holes.
When we played it the greens were soaking wet and the fairways weren't giving any run. Despite there not having been that much rain in the days before. A bit worrying for when winter comes.
We got a good welcome in the bar and the food was very good.

Nice tight tree lined course

Good course,every hole seems to be a tree lined and fairly tight. No great changes in elevation.Greens were in good shape and quite soft.

Nice course

Went here with a Society having not played it before.
Breakfast was great. Very windy conditions on the day made it difficult to focus on the balls. This course has loads of trees and leaves so on this day finding balls was pretty difficult. Course condition was probably 7/10 maybe 8 so acceptable. Greens pretty good. In all an enjoyable day with a good bunch.

Because of the very hot weather this summer the fairways were very bare BUT the greens were fast and in perfect condition.

Loved the course but very wet for August, could do with better drainage.
Excellent facilities and very friendly staff.
Because it was so wet I'm not sure the cost of £30 is that generous

Very well presented course and tree-lined fairways mean you have to be straight, but did feel that holes could have been a bit more exciting.

Course was interesting enough with quirky holes although greens were very wet and slow even though we've had a pretty dry summer. To pay £30 even though on offer I would suggest there are better courses with better greens for the money.

While there are good things about this course, be very wary of it winter. Yesterday Coombe Wood was bone dry, today Drift was not a pleasant experience because of drainage issues. In particular many of the paths were just mud and casual water. Given that it has been relatively dry the last few days it was surprising to see some casual water on fairways. Footprints were evident on some greens which clearly aren't sand based. If this was a members course, it probably would have been closed.

Course could do with better time management as there was a lot of waiting around at tee boxes. Greens were really hard to read with some quick and some slow but the rest of the course was great and enjoyable.
