Fantastic course must visit

I played the course just after Open Qualifying and was told the course has never been in better condition. They weren't wrong, it was quite honestly faultless - reminded me of Hollinwell in places and all the best courses in Surrey - In that condition, this course walks into the top 50 in England

Open qualifier course - very good

I don't get to play this course nearly enough. It is a real challenge, which is why it is usually an Open Qualifier. Usually play in their Senior Open which fills up very quickly because it is so popular. The course is well laid out, although the greens on the other side of the railway line at the start of the back 9 holes seem to have some wicked slopes on the greens which can easily ruin a good round. There have been some work done to reduce trees and gorse, which has improved the look, but may have reduced the difficulty. The natives are friendly, although one or two of the neighbours who use the public footpaths don't seem to have any idea that they also need to look out for golfers, not just the other way round! The food on offer has always been good, fresh and plenty of it, and the clubhouse facilities are first class. Love playing here, and hope to do it justice at some stage before I get too old to reach the long par 4's in regulation.

Fantastic members only course

Course was in excellent condition
Tricky if you go off the fairway but greens were true - shame my putting wasn't up to the same standard as the course.

Lovely lovely lovely

First time playing the main course. What a joy to behold. Even after endless rains no puddles or muddy fairways, even buggies on the course! This is a special place. Fantastic fairways, aprons better than most courses greens and a lot more undulating than I imagined. It is long this time of year with little run out off your drives. Lots of slopes both fairways and greens, but all in lovely condition. It makes you think which is good. Relatively wide for the most part but far from easy. It must be a brute in the summer with greens running quick but I will be back. Good pro shop staff. Yes some of the older members are a bit ‘old school’ and can give the club a bad elitist feel but ignore those and this is just a great course.

Superb course, but disappointing greens

An excellent venue for golf, but spoiled slightly yesterday by very slow greens, which bordered on pay and play standard as well as attitude of members with two of our party asked to tuck shirts in, with one gentleman not even in the clubhouse, but stood in the golf shop.

A great place that was spoiled a little

Really nice course, a mixture of wide fairways and tight risk and reward holes. The greens run quick and true and there are virtually no flat putts. Presentation of the course was spot on

Shear delight even in the rain

I always thought this course would be too difficult for a high handicapper. Some of the fairways were narrower than what I usually play on, but with some careful play, i didnt venture into the rough too much. Despite on and off rain, I thoroughly enjoyed playing here, and the clubhouse was very welcoming and food great. As the course is ten minutes from where I live, I would love to join, not many courses have this affect on me, I will have to persuade the wife, that it would be a good investment for me to join

Great course and very dry in winter. The new pratise Facilities are top class in addition to a practise ground there is a grass range, 2 putting greens and a short game area . Its a golfer dream for a full day out. The ProSwing fitting studio fitted me with Woods & Irons so I had to return to play and practise. Best course for miles around.
