Used to be a nice friendly, quiet club, but recently acquired new owners and now sadly in decline. Booked 2 ball online for midday Sunday start. No food available to start with. Course beyond busy, 2 hours to complete 7 holes, waiting on every tee. Appreciate there was a society, but no fun waiting on every hole for players in front to tee off. Gave up after 8 as beyond frustrated. Nigel from club said to expect delays from now on .. certainly won’t be rushing back in a hurry!

Thank you for your review. We aim for 4.5 hours for a round when busy. As the course was busy with 4-balls the pace for a 2 ball would be reduced. This why we do operate a 4 ball policy and encourage 2 balls to join together.

The greens were atrocious, I was disgusted - there was more mud visible than grass.

Took a battering from the rain and C19

Oh dear....usually sucha delight to play but this time after the harsh rainfall and then C19 (can only assume that minimal work been done over spring) the greens are in an awful state and the fairways not much better. The greens are burnt out. Seems either decease or moss has got to them. Very dry and so ball runs a lot. Good news is the rough has been cut and so not too penal. It will take most of this year and next spring to fully recover

Average

At present the Green's are shockingly bad. Can only assume this is due to green keeping being non essential works during lockdown.
Rest of the course is in OK shape

Reviewed Jul 5 2016

Usually a lovely course but disappointing this week due to the greens being spiked week beginning 4th July 2016 leaving them pretty much unplayable (if you want to get a decent score!!) Most disappointing is the fact that the work on the greens was not mentioned on the Clubs or the booking website that I used. I feel it's only fair that players can be made known of a courses condition before they pay good money to play. Will be reluctant to play there again any time soon, which is a shame. Would recommend usually but not in this condition.

The Pro's The Course Is Immaculate. A Round Of Golf There Is Relatively Fast. The Food Is Of A Good Standard. The Con's It Is Difficult To Get To The Bar On A Busy Day As There Are To Many People Gathered Around It. The Bar Service Is Slow On A Busy Day As They Only Have One Machine To Process The Transactions. The Interior Is Not Very Attractive As It Is Very Dated I Would Be Staggered If Anything In There Was New. It Is Annoying As You Cannot Order Food At The Bar And You Have To Walk Into The Spike Bar And Order It There Which Is A Pain. It Can Be Annoying On The Course When You Are Stuck Behind A Five Ball That Will Not Let You Through And The Round Will Take Forever. Finally With The Pro-shop It Is Good For The Essentials For The Round Of Golf But It Over Priced Items Which Puts Me And Other People From Buying Off Them. - Dave Reviewer

The course was rain affected

disappointingly the course was affected by a seriously wet period so 18 temp greens. Well done for keeping the course open vut I am unable to give a full export as not putting challenge to shout about.
Would play again In more favourable conditions.

Not unexpectedly the course bears up to the winter as best it can & consequently shorter courses holder greater appeal this time of year & it eas fair value fir that. Despite the sleet conditions which eased it became more enjoyable even though the kitchen shut at 3 & we were 10 mins late.

Great views, testing, tight course

A lovely course, not the longest, but a good test. You also have to think about club selection to keep out of trouble that is usually not far off the fairways. Only negative was the condition of the tee boxes, could do with some attention.

Quirky and hilly course. If you were a member here you would certainly keep fit. Mature trees lining most of the fairways, easy to get stuck behind if you are not accurate from the tee. Some holes very difficult if you have not played the course before. Layout not very intuitive so it's possible to get lost. The invisible green on the 14th and the hill climb on the 17th were highlights. A couple of the long par fours very hard. Enjoyed it though!
