What the club says: The 6,900 yard, 18 hole Championship County Course has already won critical acclaim for its challenging yet fair features. With four par 3’s, nine par 4’s, five par 5’s, ten lakes and strategically placed bunkering give a spectacular beginning and finale to the round. The course provides a constant choice of shots for golfers of all standards.

18 hole, Par 73, 6,907 yard course

The 2,200 yard, short par 34 Garden Course, offers a different challenge altogether. Its tightly guarded greens, tricky par 4’s and attractive par 3’s present an intriguing and popular challenge to beginners and experts alike.

9 hole, Par 34, 2,200 yard course

Never played here before. Nice course in good condition. Pretty flat but intersting enough to go round. Greens had just been hollowtined but were pretty decent. Clubhouse was a nice place to have a drink afterwards. Would like to play it again at some point.

Love this course and have played a number of times. Only ever experienced slow play once. Some nice wide fairways to forgive my high handicapper drives. Appears to drain well too as you often get a nice bit of additional distance from bounce. Still enough opportunities to lose balls to challenge those with higher handicaps. Although the bar wasn't open the last time we played, pre-COVID, I found it very welcoming. Has become a little more expensive than pre-COVID but hope to be able to pick up some visitor bargains in the future.

Loverly little 9 hole.

This is a fantastic little 9 hole course. it is well maintained & fairly challenging but not to hard. It is quite hilly but that just adds to the fun.

Played this course recently as I was staying in the on-site hotel and working nearby, the whole complex which includes many leisure facilities is very good, it is off the main roads so nice and quiet. The course is an excellent all-rounder and would suit both low and high handicappers with enough trouble & tough holes without being too penalising. The course was in very good condition for the time of year and really holds up well in the wet. Not the most extensive pro-shop set within the complex foyer but doers have a separate clubhouse golfers bar that sells good reasonably priced beer and food. I would definitely recommend this course for a casual round with friends and especially for societies or groups.
