Good deals with golf, bed and breakfast make this worth a look but the course is not one to inspire you. It is however good short getaway venue.

Hugely expensive, dont seem to care once they have your money

44 of us went for our start of the season trip. We have done this for years and every other devere or mariott give us a discount voucher for the bar. Not here, very expensive.

Booked a 3 course choice menu as part of our DBB and were told at the 11th hour that it was a carvery, again not offered any apologies or compensation.

The biggest issue was the courses, we were assured all week after bad weather that the courses were fully open with no restrictions. on arrival we were told only 14 holes open on the priory course and on the moorland course we will be playing winter rules (use a fairway mat or move your ball off the fairway). But we could hire a buggy to drive on the same fairways we couldnt hit a ball on.

This was a big disappointment but as it was the end of winter, we accepted it (again with no compensation). But the biggest kick in the teeth was that all members out at the same time as us were not playing 'winter rules' just our group it seems. its left a very bitter taste with me.

(oh and just an FYI, i wanted some new shoes. but i played in my old ones as the ones in the shop were £185, for the same shoes i bought in american golf a year ago for £95.

Played the Priory course early on a Sunday morning. The experience was wholly ungratifying. My main complaint is that it is set-up (and is) very short. This was exacerbated by the placement of temporary tees on almost every hole further up the fairway (some 50-80 yards further up than the grass tee boxes) I wasn't able to use driver once on the front nine. This was not advertised on the course's web-site; frankly, it's not good enough for £35 to run temporary tees on EVERY hole even in winter, particuarly since many of the tees are on elevated positons and likely not prone to water-loggin. The temporary tees are actually permanent structures which indicates that they are use throughout winter.
- there were four temporary greens. Again, not good enough for £35 winter rate.
We threw the towl in after 10 holes. The back nine may have been nicer, but I was tired of hitting five irons off mats to avoid going through dog-legs.
- quite a few blind shots (having to aim at a stake), which I'm not a fan of, generally because they reflect too little land for a hole.
- alot of side-hill and angled iron shots. Greens were in decent condition for end of February, but hadn't been rolled and the groundsman's boot marks were on several of them. Not goog enough for £35 in winter.
- the man in the green fees office was rather bullying when I responded to his remark "That was quick" with the points above (shortened). Completely refused to accept that existence and placement of tees meant the advertised length of 6000 yards was misleading. Argued with everything I suggested, despite asking for my feedback. He was of the old-school golfing attitude "Don't like it, don't play here" which may have contributed to the reduction in the populatity of golf in recent years.
- Overall, a thoroughly disappointing 10 holes of golf rewarded by a rude reception on returning the trolley. I cannot fathom how this course is value for money at full green fees, unless you are happy paying £65 for some good views over the surrounds. Complete rip-off, but, being attached to a hotel, corporates seems prepared to pay it and the club will probably continue to prosper (or get by, at least)

Played the Moorland course on a society deal in March. Got a great deal apart from the fact we were not told that during the winter you either have to play off little rubber mats or move your ball off the fairway onto the first cut. We were not impressed especially as it was March and the fairways were bone dry following a decent dry period.

The course itself is a little bland and gives the feel of playing the same holes again and again. All the par 3's are shortish. I will not be returning to this course.

Worth a visit

Stayed at the hotel so took the clubs for a quick round on the Priory course. Not the best start when I was told it would be £20 on the phone and was then charged £30 in the pro shop (chap working there not the friendliest).

On the whole it is a nice course, fairways and greens were in excellent condition. The greens are small which makes it a bit of a sterner test. Little features make the difference, like the high quality hole signs which so many courses lack.

It is not the hardest course ever, most fairways are wide open so if you spray it around a bit you are more than likely going to find your ball and have a decent shot in. There are a few bland holes but equally some really nice interesting holes, particularly the holes where you play round the driving range and over the road.

Interesting to rad other reviews saying the course is 'tight' - I cannot see how that is true at all. Maybe on 3 or 4 holes, but the rest are wide open. Also others have noted the unfriendly shop staff.

I certainly would not be happy paying more than £30 for a round here, but i think that is a fair price for a relatively short, easy course.

Lovely course

First time back on the Moorland in over 10 year’s and it didn’t disappoint. Lovely condition, amazingly fast fairways and greens given the start to the year we have had, must be so quick in summer! I’m not that long off the tee, but both my partner and I nearly drove 2 of the shorter par 4s just under 300 yards. Much prefer this to the Priory course, and at £55 I’d say fair value. Worth £20 more than Morley Hayes every time.
