Overrated

Overrated club. Swailend is a better test of golf, but is so open it becomes easy. Hawkshill is over hyped, just play safe of the tee and it's really easy. Hit driver and you risk finding trees and will struggle for par. But with some course management, it's easy. Fairways are often in poor condition. Greens are good. Nice to have a driving range.

The course was in good condition apart from the greens where a lot of grass seed was put down. The driving range was getting revamped but apart from that the course was in good nick. The bar staff were really friendly and the meals were quick and excellent value for money.

The fairways had a few divots that were not replaced but the greens were well kept and fast. The staff were really helpful and friendly. I would definitely play the course again and recommend it to all my golf buddies.

Good course in good condition but perhaps should not have been open. Ground was soaking across the course so finding playable lies was tough
