Playable Course despite recent bad weather

The greens were firm and true. The fairways were well drained and there was little or no standing water. A credit to the greenkeepers, and staff.

fun course

Played this 27 hole course for the second time, its made of 3 9 hole courses giving you the option of what 18 holes to play. we played the Heron and Hawk. There are some long par 5 holes which even the longest hitters wont make it on in 2. course was in good condition. food was basic but ok. clubhouse is very relaxed with no dress code, also used for public playing foot golf etc.

Played here many times before and decided at the end of last year not to play here again due to the poor standard of the course. Decided to give it another chance this weekend, but was again very disappointed with the poor tee boxes and the greens were very bumpy and did not run true at all. I do not recommend playing here until they spend a bit of money on the course. Also, the driving range is very poorly stocked and some of the balls are quite frankly shocking.

Played this course yesterday 21st Feb 2016. Don't think I will rush back ! They have tried to pen you through to the fairways and away from greens to protect the course which is about the only plus side with the recent weather. Shame they haven't put any thought whatsoever into the Tee's ! Suggestion? Try moving the Tee pins around ! Was like teeing off in a paddy field ! 60% of the bunkers were marked GUR ! due to being unplayable, fair enough but those not marked GUR were in as bad a condition as the GUR ones.
Spoke with the young man in the Pro shop after to discuss the price £30 for the condition of the course due to the conditions! Not very forthcoming or apologetic! It's the same price no matter what !!!
Also added as I played in a two ball and followed a FOUR ball for the whole round and not called through !! They had two clear holes in front of them for the majority of the round ! Response was it was a members four ball swindle !
Fancied a pint and something to eat after in the clubhouse!!! Waited at the bar for what seemed an eternity!!!! Lots of banging and crashing in the kitchen but no one to serve ! Decided to go somewhere local instead!
Seems if your a member your welcome! If not then not very welcoming !!!!!
Overall HIGHLY NOT RECOMMENDED

Well maintained and challenging course. However, some of the hole positions cut on slopes were almost unplayable such as 8 on the Heron. I enjoy a challenge but a little more thought from the greenkeeper please.

Course was very good, fairways and greens in great condition.
Heron is a good test.
Did not play the Hawk.

Not overly impressed by the 'football golf' course that was on the same course as the Vixen.

Clubhouse and Car park does the job, but is a bit of a dump and uncared for.

Focussing on the golf course, would go back for sure, pleasing to the eye.
Good greens, very true.
Not a massive test, I am a 14 handicapper and went round in 7 over par (78), but good for practising your short irons.
Very good value for money, paid £15 for 18 holes.

I have always enjoyed playing this course always in good condition but I recommend they put up repair pitch mark signs as some selfish players don't repair them although the greens are always ok. Bit more expensive than other pay and play courses in the area but good value for twilight golf.
