Course in a very poor state and would have been better paloying in a farmers field as it was that bad!

This golf course is a woodland course and is run by the local council, and it shows.
The greens this year are very bumpy and rutted in places. It also tends to hold a lot of water when it rains, and at the tail end of last year, the course was in very poor condition and very muddy. Things have dried out this year and so far the course is playing ok.
At a par of 37 for this 9 hole course, there is only one par 3, but two par 5's.
At under £7 for nine holes, you get what you pay for.

Very good long nine holer, play regular and really enjoy fact that every time I go it still very challenging. Very good to get a long hit and focus in on the short game would recommend to all. Can be a little wet after heavy rain but greens are well looked after.

I've played this course a few times now, and to be honest, It's quite enjoyable. I've only been playing for a couple of years, and for someone at my level it's challenging enough.
The grees could be a little better, but for a quick round before work it pretty much does the job.

This is a tricky 9 holes for any level of golfer. Played it all through the winter and the condition of the course was dreadful. Looking better now, although would help if the greens were rolled once in a while. Lots of greenside bunkers and always a stream running through each hole.

A great little test.

This is a council course set in matured woodland. It has been a good course for me as I have just started to play golf.

The course has plenty of challenges especially the burn running across holes 1,2,3,6 and 7, perfectly positioned to force tactical play depending on how long you can hit.

At present the course looks good and the fairways and greens are in decent condition, it would be a whole lot better if folk repaired the divots and respected it a little more.

An enjoyable challenge.
