Awful and dangerous course with balls flying around your head on the first three/four holes. Poor greens, cramped fairways with very high trees and expensive. Wouldn't play here again.

Great club facilities, quite expensive to play. I don't like the criss-crossing holes and the long steep walks on slippery paths

The total walk is over 7000 yards, even though the course is around 6000. It's also not the flattest of courses, and I found it quite tiring. Some changes have been made to a number of holes to lengthen the course, but we were back to playing the original 18 holes for this County Seniors competition.

Some very tight holes (especially the 17th). and quite small greens, which were a fairly consistent pace, apart from where the greenkeepers had tried out their new "green iron" just in front of our competition round.

Bunkers seemed to have plenty of soft new sand in them.

Generally speaking a decent test of golf for such a short course.

The overall day was excellent, but the lack of information on the course changes made last year is disappointing. Having asked if a course planner was available, one was purchased. However, this did not show the changes to the holes from 12 through to 18, and no warning of this was given in the proshop when it was bought

Very Helpful friendly members, nice woodland course , only faults are two tee shots that are played straight over greens in front of tee. £40 green fee a bit stiff.

Quality course. There are some very good, fun holes to play. The signature hole is quite unique as is the 17th. Well worth a visit.

Lovely course

Course was in good condition despite the hot weather we have had. Greens had been hollow tined recently so unfortunately a bit slow (but this has to be done so just unfortunate to play when they were a tad slow) Balcony overlooking 10th tee and 18th green is good to sit and enjoy a drink after play. Would definitely recommend playing here. Very friendly members and great food here.

Played this course for the second time only, in a Society day. Course seems to be in good order. Greens were quite quick and consistent speed, but were a little hard (very rare to leave a pitch-mark). Bunkers had plenty of sand in them, although some needed raking. There are ditches which proved to be a challenging distance off the tees, but this appeared to be down to the windy conditions on the day we played. Could have done with a yardage book to know when to lay up and when to go for it. The pro shop told us they were still using preferred lies, although the fairways seemed to be in good enough order for this not to be needed - certainly, most of our party of 24 did not feel the need. As it is a hotel course, the breakfast was a buffet which you could help yourself to, so suited those with a large or small appetite! We have our 'presentation' after the event, and there were some members watching football in the TV in the golf bar, so a little difficult to get us all together for prize giving (ended up with half of us standing).

Very tight and interesting course, lots of memorable holes. Greens receptive, friendly pro. A real premium on placing your tee shot, need to play here more than once to get the best out of it. \Fairways have really suffered in the dry spell, more than anywhere else I’ve seen which is surprising given how tree lined it is. 12-16 are obviously a late addition to the rest of the course and are very out of character. Someone forward thinking needs to be getting some sensibly placed saplings laid out.\Despite that, it’s a lot of fun and extremely underrated on here, will be back

Great layout

Went as part of a charity golf day, had an amazing time. Course is tough but fair, although some holes are in need of work after the summer we've had. Hospitality was second to none, but as i say it was a charity day so you would expect it to be good.

Played as a guest of Bedfordshire County, and played from the back tees. Not a very long course, but trees are mature, and apart from a couple of very tight holes, this is a course I usually enjoy playing. Some tees are close to greens, so expect some shouts of 'fore'. Greens were quick and true, although they had some very heavy rain which closed the course 2 days before we played, so it would be worthwhile checking before you book that the course is fully open. Nice layout, but with a couple of fairly long walks between greens and the next tee.

Really interesting course

Very tight on most holes, only the newer holes are at all forgiving. Tees, greens and fairways all in great condition. Strange layout in places with crisscrossing holes, but common sense makes it no problem.
