Challenging Course

Excellent course in fantastic condition, tricky in parts a course you definitely have to think your way around. The facilities here are amazing with a lovely bar area with friendly staff. The driving range is nice and there is also an American Golf shop onsite. There are also lots for the family here as there’s an adventure golf course for the kids and also a foot golf and academy course.

Excellent course with excellent facilities, this course is definitely one you have to plan your shots around it’s not a long drive chip and putt. No hole is the same all very different which I love. A buggy is a must I’d say as it’s quite hilly. There is a very nice restaurant and American Golf shop onsite. The green fees are very reasonable. Also onsite there is a pitch and putt and foot golf course.

Excellent golf course very challenging and hilly, greens are in very good condition but are difficult to read. I would recommend this course to anyone but a buggy is a must in my opinion. The facilities and staff are exceptional great bar area driving range with an American golf store onsite.

Excellent facilities, clubhouse is very good with good size bar and restaurant area with very reasonable prices. The course itself is quite challenging although the holes aren't long they do make you think about your shots as the bunkers are placed in very strategic placements. The greens are in good condition and roll very well. The staff at the course are all very friendly and eager to help. Also onsite is an American golf shop for all your needs.

Wow played at Playgolf on the 1/8/2014
How the club has come on the new club house and changing rooms
Are outstanding the changing rooms are to a very high standard they also have two
Saunas that you can use free of charge after your round.
The course is great with some very hard holes the 8th water is great I almost lost one there :-)
The walk over the 10th is a little up and down so next time I will be getting a buggy.
The food in the club house is very modern the pizzas are great they have a wood fired pizza oven
Overall a great day out I'll be returning soon.

I played yesterday, the course was fantastic and in very good condition. Well worth a visit. The new clubhouse that has been built is great too, friendly and helpful staff. I hit balls before I played and they even have Power Tees on the range
