Not value for money

This course could be great but isn't. Greens were average, fairways had grass cuttings all over them, not worth the ?20 to play. Originally quoted ?25. We also spent the day following a 5 ball, enough said.

Lovely course but you definitely need a buggy. It's situated on the side of a hill and every hole is either a slog up or a tricky run down. The green are also very slow and I struggled to get the putter working. Nice staff and a lovely smile greeted us after our round.

Up in the Gods I dont think we have ever played the course in decent weather but despite the wind it stayed dry. The course was in unbelieveable condition despite the weather we had had with several days of heavy rain. Could not believe the work the groundstaff had done. Several tremendous holes worth playing over and over again

Nice course which is well maintained and good layout! However the greens were too hard and fast… buggy hire was a waste due to rule of staying on cart path.

It was busy,so didnt have time to enjoy the views. Had buggies,it might be a lot harder without them,due to it being quite hilly. Enjoyed it though.
