Most Helpful Review

It was a deluge the day before. It was a frost the night before. I played in the middle of the day and you would not have known apart from some small puddles of standing water. Outstanding condition for November, and on a Golf now hot deal, fantastic value . Only gripe is signage between some holes

Golfshake Team Review

Pleasantly Surprised

Was taken here as a thank you from a friend and from the off was really impressed with not only the course but the friendliness off the pro in the shop and the members out on the course. Excellent layout with great bunkering and great if not the quickest greens. Every hole presents a different challenge to the last.
Tree lined so accuracy not necessarily length is needed. Even when you find the greens being on the "wrong side" can easily lead to a dreaded 3 putt. Definitely worth the visit for anyone in the area looking for a good course to challenge themselves on. - Aug 17 2017

Great Course.
What a great hidden course this is. Nestled in the middle of a housing scheme it is so tranquil and quiet its amazing. Some great holes as well. The 2nd is a tester and if you walk off with a par there you have done well. Doing quite a bit of work on it at the mo with 3 holes but when finished will look and play even better than it currently does.

Great day and great course. Fairways were all brown with plenty of run but the green were lush green and immaculate. Members a bit aloof but staff were very good.

Bang Average
Played last week, entering the place is strange and you do wonder what you are going to turn up to, but in all honesty it is not that bad, it has a couple of nice holes, plays short but so is everywhere at the moment, greens average at best, clubhouse ok but lots of work going on with new holes, could be interesting

Superb Course
This is a fantastic parkland style course. Amazing considering it looks like its in the middle of a large housing area. Some lovely holes. Doing a lot of work on it at the moment , but in the summer I can see this to be even better than it currently is. Great opening first hole, slight dogleg right be aware of ther water though all up the right.

Hidden Gem.
This is a beautiful course, couple of uphill holes, especially the second. Some very tight fairways from the tee but widen once you leave the tee. Overall I would highly recommend this course. They have spent a lot of money building up new bunkers etc and it now looks a great course. Give it a try if you are in the midlands.

Mr T Jones rated 3 out of 5 - Jul 25 2017

Confused
When I review on here I like to think I am honest having played many courses over my life as a golfer. This all day long is a 3 star venue. Its not great but it certainly is not bad. Some good some bad holes and the condition around average that you will find in the midlands with average staff levels and budgets, worth a knock

Amazing hidden Gem
An amazing course which not easy to find as the entrance is in the middle of a housing estate.
Once parked up though this course has some amazing holes. Highly recommend and please give it a try. I can guarantee you will not be disappointed.

Average
Played last week and I'm not sure we're some of the reviewers have been playing, greens are average at best, it has some great holes but some stinkers too. I agree the course is much better then the area suggests but still an average course in the midlands

Fantastic Course. Sits quietly out the way in the middle of a housing scheme. Its a hidden little gem. Some great holes that have thoughtfully been thought out as sometimes tactics are better than brute force off the tee. highly recommended for anyone to try at least once.

The bunkers were out of action due to repair work taking place. The course was in immaculate condition. I have played this course on three previous occasion and have always found it a challenge. All the features of a golf course on display from water hazards to dog-legs.

The course is undergoing a lot of work on the green-side bunkers at the moment, so there are one or two temporary greens being used. I understand the need for temporarys but the size and condition of them was poor for a private club ! I would wait about month before playing again.
