Rough is too long!

So I'm not a professional golfer. I can't hit a dead straight shot every time. My most common shot is a slice when I take my drive. I would take my shot. Hit the ball 220 yards, clearly watch it bounce on the fairway then maybe end up 1 yard into the "short" rough on the edge of the fairway and when I go to find my ball it's impossible. Ended up taking about 10 drop shots from missing balls. And the ones I did find, the rough was too thick to play out of. The greens had sand patches all over them. The bunkers had grass growing in them and not a single rake in sight. The conditions were terrible.

Bit wet!

This is a really good course when it?s dry. The new ground work has really bedded in well but it?s was boarderline unplayable yesterday and probably should have been closed. It was so wet and boggy your ball just plugged after every shot. It was too wet to cut the grass making the fairways look like the second cut rough which didn?t help. Greens played quite well though all be it slow due to the wet conditions.

Alterations still in progress so a couple of holes have been significantly shortened. OK for a knockabout on your own.

course very good but pins hidden behind bunkers are impossible to get at as greens very hard and just not receptive hence lots of silly shots thrown away !

Nice course with some temporary tees. Lack of any yardage markers cost shots which was a shame

Course has dried out since all the rain we have had. Greens have improved with the sunshine and are faster than they were.

We played on a Saturday and think it is a bit pricey for £25, with the conditions. It is very wet and boggy at the moment but the greens are very good.
The course is good with plenty of variety.

Nice tight course. Greens were running pretty fast today 28/9/13
Some nice use of water around the course. Most holes were tree lined which is nice.
A good local course in Essex and definitely worth a visit.

Nice course with plenty of water, not the most difficult as its not the longest course you will play, but you have to use a bit of course management as it has plenty of hazards. A bit overpriced especially at weekends, but i played on a Tuesday before 7.30am which they call an early-bird and only paid £12.00 which at that price is excellent value, after 7.30am i think its £18.00 which during the week is a bit steep, at weekends i think its £24.00 and there are better course to play around the same price.

The priors course is short, but very tactical. Lots of water you have to cross at tee locations and around greens.

A tough course but a lot of interesting holes. Will challenge high handicappers and would probably suit longer hitters. An ok clubhouse but I dont think its worth the green fees compared to others!.

Interesting course that you have to think your way around. Luckily played with a member otherwise would have been hopelessly lost on a few holes, u-turn dog legs, numerous blind shots. A few par fours that are almost imposible to hit in two due to layout, water etc. Difficult course in all but in good nick and would return, but with a 2-4-1 voucher in my sky rocket!

Very pleasant course. Tight fairways, interesting holes, some with water in play, and also some good doglegs. I really enjoyed playing here. Even the natives were nice and friendly! (Explanation - I come from over the border in Hertfordshire)

This is a great course. The course has been thoughtfully designed with plenty of hazards to contend with, especially water, which comes into play on more than half of the holes. The first and 18th holes in particular are a test of nerve! And great value for money. The facilities are basic, but there's somewhere to get refreshments and there are toilets, so its good enough. There's a decent pub only 400 yards away so if you're looking for a beer after and something to eat just head down to the Alma Arms. Overall, this is great value for money.

The greens were very impressive quality.

I enjoyed the course as most holes require tactical play rather than just hit it as far as you can! Many dog legs or water hazards so you have to choose whether to lay up or go for greens.

However I would never go again due to the service. I was attending a work golf day so we played 36 holes and was at the course early for breakfast first. I tried to visit the reception 4 times and every time it was closed!! One of these times we needed score cards and resulted in us teeing off late.
