I play here whenever I visit family in Plymouth. The chap who runs it friendly and welcoming to all so you can encounter beginners and slow play, but it has always been a pleasure to play. Well kept and great views. There are some challenging holes and I've yet to play to my handicap there (18). Worth a look if you are laid back and tolerant of beginners. Enjoy!

The course was fairly easy, few hazards but unfortunately a group of 6 tracksuit clad idiots just pushed their way in front of our 2 ball and just behaved like morons, they would not let us play through and were taking at least 20 minutes a hole. This has put me off playing here again....

Great place to play nice and early. The main gentleman running the show is a very friendly chap that is always upbeat and welcoming with outstanding customer service skills. The food and drink is very reasonably priced and of a good standard. The only downside is the groundsman turning up and working on the green you are trying to play on to. Never experienced this at any other course, while I except that the course needs to be worked on, it's very distracting having someone de-weed whilst you are putting.

Great fun course. It's not that flat and poses a few challenges. Well maintained and good in bad weather if you just have to get out.

A good beginner course as there are few hazards. Some holes however play long, particularly the uphill Par 5 6th and the Par 4 7th. On in 2 on the 7 th is a great achievement in my opinion. Can get boggy in wet weather but has never been closed nor have there been any temporary greens in the 2 years I have played there.

This course is a no frills open to everyone course.It is very well maintained and kept,is quite tricky to play,with both long and short holes. The only slight pickup I could say,is that the greens are cut a little on the long side. If you are coming tothe area for a weeks golf, this is a good 'warm up' course.
