My first visit recently and I was amazed how well the course was kept. May I add as well if not better than some private clubs. A good feel to the course and the back 9 is one of the best back nines I have played. Maybe slightly pricey however for a days fun £16.50 is a fair price in my opinion. I am joining on yearly membership tomorrow I am that impressed.

Good course considering the price. Yardage is a bit on the short side, but perfect If you?re relatively new to the game. Some challenging holes and kept in fairly good condition throughout

Municipal Course

Expensive for what it is, winter greens pretty rough will try again in summer to see whether it plays better

Great Course

A lot of very good work has been done on this course. It used to be a run of the mill municipal which was good in parts but equally bad in others but it's been taken over and the new team have worked a minor miracle. It is still a work in hand but they're well on the way to making it a great course. I hope they keep up the good work

Short undulating testing course, a few blind shots! Not much safer only on the perimeter of the course, a few trees dotted about but nothing to worry about really! Friendly clubhouse staff

Great course

This course has improved no end over the last few years and this season thanks to the new management, the course is even better with excellent fairways and greens.

Well maintained and good value for money

A well maintained course with no midweek booking required and good value for money. There could have been some more distance markers and highly dislike the 18th hole. I would play again and not too many hazards for beginners.

Major TLC required !

I've played this course man & boy and yesterday the course was in the worst condition I've every played it, which was a shame as I was looking forward to playing it. I appreciate we've had a hot summer, and has clearly suffered as result, a lot of the greens were devoid of grass.

Whilst being a 'Members course' it is also a municipal pay and play course. Sadly some of the Marland members think they own the course and regularly play in a 'five-some' which delays following players and is aggravating for the more sporting players. Telling-offs don't seem to work.

Nice step up from pitch and putt

Reasonable well maintained with good quality tee areas. Some tricky par 3s though for those with a weaker pitch game (like myself). The par 5 is lovely big driver hole, great fun for those not used to it.
