Got there to find all tees off mats, nothing about this on website or during phone booking. Greens very uneven, not true. Loads of people walking dogs, cycling and generally getting in the way all over the course. Not a good challenge either, 2 of the par 3s are far too long for the average handicapper - need a driver on one! Too many fairways with severe slopes, almost impossible to hold ball. Not enough variety, probably only need 4 clubs. One of worst courses have ever played

Course has certainly seen better days, but was an enjoyable round all the same. The clubhouse staff were great, friendly pro in the shop and the course was deserted! It had rained a lot and the course was quite damp - the greens were not great, but playable, with some nice holes. I will play it again when it's in better shape and will review it again.

Tough but enjoyable courses

Booked to play on the west course & old course. Both courses were very challenging. Fairways were very good. Very disappointed with the greens on the old course. Loads of sand. No warning & no offer of a reduced green fee or credit note.

Nice course, challenging steep angled fairways at times, greens in fairly good condition. A little short on yellow so best to play off the whites. Course maintained pretty well, needs more distance markers, no bunkers was unusual.
Food, drink fairly priced and good quality. Staff very polite and helpful in both the pro shop and the restaurant. Will certainly play again.

Not too bad if its been wet. Quite tight on some holes. Very undulating fairways lots of Knolls and hollows around the greens. Hanging lies. Fast greens. Some good holes. 18th a belter.

Only played the West Course, not The Old Course. Very user friendly, typical faiways and greens found on forest courses, and while quite short is still a good test. No bunkers to worry about but you may find yourself with a linksy type lie on the fairway.
