Good course, challenging and generally a good round to play. The facilities are good, the driving range is close by. The only downside is there is no putting green.

First round for ages. Lovely course.

The course was in excellent condition, pacey greens. Plenty of trees to punish wonky driving!

The green fee was a lot cheaper than when I last played Cranbrook 10 years ago, although the greens weren't as fast as I remembered they did run smooth and the rest of the course was very well maintained. The new no nonsense log cabin clubhouse works well with no hint of stuffiness. We will definitely go back.

I played this course on Friday 7th October, The course is challenging but in fantastic condition especially the greens. The Pro said because the clubhouse had relocated to the driving range a lot of rumours were circulating that the club was closing down, which is total rubbish! In conclusion, no frills golf, great value ( i paid 25 quid). I will definitely visit again.

(Round played: Jul 2016 - Score: 110 Handicap: 28)
Nice course, so quiet and beautyfull, greens very good, but fairways get waterlogged very easily. On the day we had a 20 minute downpour and the fairways were covered with large areas of surface water.
A nice course but very much over priced, with not so great clubhouse facilities. I wont be returning unless they reduce the fees.
