What the club says: The Lakes Course (Five Lakes Resort). This course, designed by Neil Coles, is used annually for regional PGA events and was the venue for the Nick Faldo Challenge. The course provides a testing examination for the better player as well as an enjoyable round for all standards. Water features strongly in the overall design of the Lakes Course, coming in to play on ten of the holes.

Really fun course, plenty of hazards but good course management can see them avoided, which is key to a low score here

A bit samey but enjoyable.

Played the Links Course with 3 others who stayed the night. The front 9 was not very interesting with lots of straight holes going up and down. Nearly every hole was driver off the tee. The course overall presents a challenge with the rough being extremely unforgiving. If you hit it off line you’re getting another ball out of your bag and going again. The greens had has some maintenance but still ran well. Bunkers were virtually all waterlogged even though the course was in good, dry and playable condition. Tee boxes could do with a bit of TLC as the grass was long and generally very, very uneven. There was a lack of fairway markers for yardages which made it a little difficult without the annoying laser binoculars everyone else seems to have.

The other three stayed the night which I’m glad I didn’t. Our meal took 2+ hours to arrive which is astonishing considering its a set menu of only 3/4 choices per course and when it did arrive it wasn’t a meal I would be paid to eat. I heard the breakfast wasn’t any good either.

The Lakes course provided more of a challenge apparently and was well worth a go with a lot more dog legs and thinking holes.

If you are looking for an overnight getaway I probably wouldn’t recommend solely for the service in the hotel.

Course in very reasonable condition for time of year apart from bunkers which were mostly waterlogged. Very enjoyable round with no delays in 3 1/2 hours

Lovely challenging course

A good challenge and some difficult holes. Course in good condition. In a group of 10 staying for 3 nights. Food menu was the same each evening.
Hotel a bit of a let down as sporting facilities closed ay 6pm and bar at 11pm despite being hotel guests.

Good day out

There for a golf society weekend. Played both the Links and Lakes course. Both courses offered something different, but think the Lakes course is more interesting.

Not great

Lakes course was ok, Bunkers should all be GUR! Patchy in places. Clubhouse very worn down. Like a maze with poor signage inside. Range was shut on a sunday to.

Superb course

Not easy course. Lot of rough along side of fairway. Once the ball goes in long grass
it was impossible to rescue penalty points

Hi 5 at Five Lakes

This course is laid out very well and has a number of challenges. There is a lot of water and bunkers this can be managed with careful course management. The course was busy so the play was a little slow at times, but cleared for the back nine. I have also played and stayed here this was also very good.
