Really nice course

Got a good deal on golfnow to play this course, not one of my normal haunts.

Really surprised, fairly tight course with rows of trees lining the fairways. Greens were fast and firm and bunkers were in good condition.

Pace of play today was slow but everyone was chipper and polite. They could do with some signage to point newbies to the course from the green to the next tee, they could also do with updating their ball cleaners and bins. The scorecard has a map of the course but some courses have maps of the holes on the tee which would have made a nice touch, if not on every hole on the holes which have blind hazards. But I am being picky there. This was a good challenge of golf.

This has always been an interesting and varied challenge, but the visit this time highlighted the excellent work by the greenkeeping staff. Sufficient grass has been left on the fairways to prevent the horrible sideways bounces often experienced on very dry courses. The greens are excellent; perhaps a little slow but consistent and running true.

Always worth a visit - no negatives

Played this course loads of times and never disappointed. Struggling to get a round in this year so far due to weather, we booked the previous day to us playing and were told that the course was closed due to snow. Fear not the next day the course was open and we had a great day - fairways excellent, rough cut to a sensible height, greens in good condition given the amount of water they had received. The friendliness of the pro is really welcome and he is great to speak to and is always helpful. Clubhouse and breakfast also excellent. We paid ?15 and I wish other courses would adopt this level of payment for the time of year. Always will recommend.
