Great course but clubhouse is pretty grim. Looks like no money has been spent on the place in years. Drinks very expensive. Food just about passable. Shame as it has huge potential.

The course had been in need of repair for many years on certain holes
There is only 2 green keepers to maintain 27 holes when 5 green keepers are needed
They have had ground under repair for the last 10-15 years on the same holes but nothing has vet been done

Bad condition

Played at this course a few times, always been in good condition. Played yesterday the course was unbelievable, the grass was so long even when you teed off we had to find some short grass. Fairways were so bad, won?t be playing here again for a very long time. Shame as we have a small society and always enjoyed our games here. Hope someone at the club sorts this course out.

Awful

Really disappointed in the state of the course. Tee boxes all overgrown. Fairways non existent, middle of the fairways were either dried mud or two inch long grass. Greens were actual half decent though. Fringes not cut.
How can the club put their prices up yet do even less to keep the course. Things like cutting the tee boxes are small but no one wants to feel like they are teeing it up in the rough!

I've been looking for a golf course near - or at least relatively near - where I live, in order to possible join as a member, or alternatively another additional course to also play after a very long (13 year) hiatus from ball chasing and took the chance to pop into pro shop and chat with the guys on a Saturday. The first impression that struck me was 'why didn't I check this hidden gem out before - let's face it it is not strictly a private (members only) course, as it's also a pay and play too - but that shouldn't put people off giving it at least one visit - it's a stunning bit of land, with tree lined fairways and rolling landscapes - exactly what I needed to try and get a least a little less round!

Expecting to not be able to play the golf course for at least a week, I was pleasantly surprised to be able to get a tee time the next day (today), and although some areas were a little rough around the edges, it was a thoroughly pleasant round of golf, albeit one on my own. The pros? Fantastic setting considering it is still within the boundary of the city. It also played very well - surprisingly so - considering the amount of rain we've been getting recently, and it's quite challenge - having to think your way around rather than smashing seven bells out of the ball. There were a few downsides to being a tree lined course though. Foremost, I've never, ever lost so many balls in one round of golf - the rough wasn't too bad, but the amount of leaves laying over the rough made it particularly tough to spot a ball nestling underneath regardless of knowing where to look. the only upside to this was, although I lost a few, I'd also found a few looking for mine! Seems I haven't been the only one to have misfortune!

I'd recommend at least checking this course out, but possibly wait until the springtime. That said it played really well on a damp, windy Sunday. But roll on Spring and Summer - that's where this course will blossom - I'll be going back!

Wooley greens and lack of attention to detail i.e. bad drainage at various low points (after a very dry March 2011 and after a week of warm weather in Mar/Apr 2011); tees are average and the feeling overall was of a potentially good course that lacks attention to detail. It's the detail that needs addressing if it's going to be a good course. At £25 for a weeekend round it is expensive compared to competitor courses in Hampshire.....Goodwood and Chichester courses more interesting; better value and in better condition.
