Wonderful course. Tight fairways, but forgiving rough - allows you to find ball but penal enough to make the next shot tough. Two wonderful two tiered greens make for precise approach play.

The course overview is very accurate and honest! I have played regularly for many years - esoecially in their 5 day Open - superb value and great fun. There is also a Ladies Week plus a Visitors Week - brilliant! check with the club as the entry lists are always over-subscribed!! C.B.

Good course with a gentle introduction that gradually gets harder. Greens well contoured and segmented so adds many different pin positions.

Hi Derek,
Thanks for the superb review and top rating. Much appreciated!

Alister MacKenzie (golf architect) always maintained that for a good golf course there should always be an alternative shot. We think it just keeps the game enjoyable.
