Golf weekend

Chose this as it was only an hour and a half drive away. Glad we did the course was in great condition and the weather could not have been better. Hotel a bit dated but the staff were excellent. Recommended.

Tidy, worth a visit

Really nice course in great shape, would recommend if you’ve not played before. Shame about some minor vandalism on a few greens but recovering nicely. Second visit in last two weeks.

We haven't played this course for a year and it was in fantastic shape, all aspects were great, greens, fairways, rough and bunkers even with no rakes. A lot of work has been done to alleviate the course being very wet in the winter - will have to see how that works later in the year.

Great course for ?11

Course not long but fairways need to be found from the tee, rough is fair but can snag club on way through, greens roll well but need to be read as three puts are easily achieved if you don't pay attention..

Course in great condition, greens were true and quick, fairways a little long so not much roll but fine for this time of year, a few mats to tee off but again im sure there just looking after the tee boxes, clubhouse staff friendly and welcoming, overall well worth a visit.

The weekend weather was very bad flooding, but was welcomed at this course. Greens were very water logged. Would definatly go back in dryer weather. Club house staff were very friendly and accomodating.
