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 course twice on a society break.The course was in a beautiful condition and the greens were immaculate greens that punished poor putting, they were quick. Tree lined so need to be straight or punished.
Staff welcoming and bar fine.
We intend to return, lovely location

Heavy Rain

Went to course in the pouring rain thinking that I will be shut because of heavy rain all the previous day, lady in golf bar said still open & ready to play. Put our wets on & played first 3 holes in heavy rain, fairways were waterlogged with more water on them than in the ponds. Having said all this course In amazing condition, once you got to the greens they to were great for how much rain we had. We played 18 as weather got better, we have played here a few times & it is a lovely course with friendly staff & members, always happy to come back

Dull and over rated

Very flat, very long and unimaginative. Better courses nearby.
Welcome from staff was very cold and in general the bar/restaurant very unwelcoming. Have to remember this is “country club” so better golf options out there welcoming of golfers and a nicer clubhouse ambience.
Over priced for the experience

Very nice course. Well maintained and watered appropriately. Only thing I didn't like was that on some greens there were sprinkler heads in the putting surface, not around the edges of the greens as is normal.

Unimaginitive

First the good bits.. the course is well maintained, great fairways which are flanked by trees which punish wayward shots and the par threes are nice. The major issue is geographical.. being based a very flat former WW2 airfield (a small one still exists right next to it) it is dead flat and many of the holes present the exact same challenge. Straight drive, long approach, try and avoid the inevitable bunkers to the left and right of each green, putt on the largely flat greens.. repeat, repeat. . It's nice, but you do get tired of playing largely the same shots on each hole and you are often left wondering if more imagination could have been used years ago when they were laying out the course.. Nice, worth a visit, but not a gem.
