What the club says: The venue boasts two, quality 18 hole golf courses with challenges suitable to golfers of all abilities. The Thonock Course is a traditional parkland course, whilst Karsten Lakes is an American style layout with numerous large bunkers and lakes to catch those wayward drives. The venue provides an excellent opportunity to play 36 holes on two contrasting styles of course. Both Courses have an excellent reputation for the quality of presentation, in particular the quality of the greens which are playable all year round due to the excellent drainage infrastructure and ongoing maintenance practices.

Nice course, could be great !

Have always wanted to play this course and now I am ending up playing it three times in three weeks ! But the first visit was pretty good, but the ferocious wind sploit the play somewhat, which of course is not the courses fault. There are some really interesting holes which need thinking through and plenty of water which I like. We did think the fairways could be tidier, more signage is needed between holes and yardage markers. Clubhouse was great, as was the food and hospitality.

Excellent

Great experience and the course was great. Only issue was that some of the bunkers were full of summer and didn't have enough same

Great Course,Give it a try.

I may not be the best player in the world, but i found this course to be very good to play without being daunting, played in the evening with the weather being good and the course was quiet so wasn't having to rush my game, I would recommend it to anyone.

Fantastic facility worth a visit

Great parkland club with two courses, driving range, putting green and great value food in the bar. Also if you play Ping they are onsite too. Only negative was pace of play of group behind who must have had elsewhere to be having pushed us round in 3.5 hrs for a 2 ball.

Played the Karsten Lakes course...this is a very nice course American themed, only thing that lets the course down is its bunkers (need a bit of tlc) can be challenging due to rough being knee high & is almost impossible to get out! Expect to loose a few balls if not on your A game...i hit 29 points on stableford playing off 16 handicap
