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

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.

Excellent course

Played with member and local. Excellent course, greens sanded but true putting. Layout perfect. Tricky holes but so enjoyable, thoroughly recommended to play this one. Thank you to the two seniors for a brilliant day.

Great Course

With the expected downpours that were predicted for the day was not looking forward to our day. However the weather Gods were in our favour and a great day was had by all. (It didn't rain till we were leaving the course. Greens in good condition and holes were challenging enough for all out participants. Food and catering were excellent and we were well looked after

Well presented. Pace of play was ok. People had good manners.
Each hole feels quite private from the others, as course is well matured
