What the club says: Set in the Welland Valley with spectacular views over the surrounding picturesque countryside. The course is 18 holes par 71 of 6175 yards. Water can come into play on nine of the holes but especially so on the 9th, 10th & 11th, which must be tamed, then a good score is a distinct possibility. Good drainage ensures that the course is playable all year round on the main greens although some temporary tees may be used in the winter months. The Course was opened in April 1995 with Messrs. Hawtree as the designers.

Sadly the critical reviews are all true1

Greens (actually often brown) all but unplayable, bunkers - compacted sand and weeds, grass too long and poor drainage. A pity because the location is superb. Attractive clubhouse - but little to offer in terms of food and drink. The prime function - i.e golf - of a potentially superb facility is self-evidently neglected

The greens are really disappointing. I have never seen greens in such a state. Some of the bunkers are in a bad way and been left to allow the wildlife to take over

Shocking

I’ve always enjoyed playing here, and visit probably once every three years or so. It has always lacked investment, which is a shame because the location is perfect and the layout itself has real potential.

But I was stunned at the condition I found the course in this week. The greens have been lost owing to insufficient irrigation - big bare patches of mud mixed in with moss. The majority of tees had at least an inch of grass on them, and the bunkers were awful. Almost all compacted and full of grass.

£20 for 18 holes is nothing short of daylight robbery. I won’t be returning.

Needs support

It is what it is, needs investment but won’t improve if people don’t support it. Generally in good condition but let down by the greens. Suffered by the weather last year, very dry and mossy now. Most bunker are GUR. Course is open and appealing to all stands as a cheaper round it is acceptable.

Good course

After all the rain we have had the course was not in dad shape. The only problem was if you hit if the faraway the grasse was much to long and some of the bunkers where just mud. Needs a bit more TLC

Nice course

Price on website £20. Actual £15. Very friendly in pro shop. Gave us free coffee whilst we waited for first tee. Course in excellent condition. Greens superb. Unfortunately there is no bar and no food to be had. So enjoy the magnificent golf then go to the pub in the village

The course is very forgiving, but very few yardage markers, there were leaves everywhere that hid balls and between 3 of us we lost 11 balls. Clubhouse had nothing in so if you needed balls, tees, food, drinks etc think again coz there are none.
