Give it a miss

I have played the course many times over the past 15 years but today it was in the worst condition I have known. Green were shocking been treated badly uneven sandy and no ball roll possible when putting. Rough has been let go also a slight roll over the fairway = lost ball every time.

Kitchen closes early

A very damp and breezy day, but weather improved through first 9 holes. Course in good condition, we teed off just before midday and finished at 3pm. Disappointed that the kitchen had just closed and we couldn’t get any food apart from a cup of tea and packet of crisps. That kitchen closing early will disappoint a lot of golfers!

The greens should be in better condition this time off the year very patchy and uneven roll. Otherwise good value for £15.

This course is great value for the money and will offer something for most golfing abilities as being up on the downs the wind can greatly affect the way you play this course.
The greens are in very good condition and being built on chalk drains well so even in the winter there are very few times when the course is unplayable.
The Pro shop has limited stock of golfing equipment but can easy replace those missing balls after a round.
