Most Helpful Review

Played for the first time here and enjoyed it. We paid £15 for an afternoon tee off. On arrival the club house and facilities were excellent and the staff at reception were excellent, really friendly and helpful. We had booked and paid for three online but one had to drop out and they gave us a refund/ voucher for the spare round without even having to ask, which was very good of them. They also do make a point of checking the dress code when you sign in for the 18 hole course.

The shop is huge and the bar seemed good although the beer was expensive. The menu seemed reasonable although we did not eat. We had a warm up on the driving range which is excellent.

As for the course is well maintained the greens are fast but consistent and in quite good condition. The course is generally flat as you would expect with the fairways in a variable state in places. The tees are vg. The first 6 or 7 holes are a bit dull, but as you move closer to the river the water features kick in with some tricky holes and a few with real character, 8 and 9 are fun. There are some nice views of the river valley as you walk round. It was a nice day for us, but on a cold grey day it could be a bit dismal and dull, I suspect wind will also normally be an issue in base of the valley which adds to the challenge.

We will definately play again, but It's somewhere to tick off of the list and visit occasionally for us.

Golfshake Team Review

Not the most visually exciting course you'll ever play, it is after all on the Trent flood plain so is flat and prone to flooding and waterlogging, especially during the winter. Having said that it drains very quickly and is normally in very good condition, the greens are usually well kept, not wildly fast, but undulating. No real holes of note apart from the 9th and 18th, both short par 3's over water. The 8th dog legs right around a lake, leaving a longish shot to the green, very satisfying to ping it, and the 17th is short but demands accuracy.

Good pro shop (albeit a bit pricey) and club house, friendly atmosphere - Aug 29 2007

Course in good condition after a very wet winter. Bunkers are poor with only a few having good sand - rest are like playing off flaky concrete and all the water features need dredging - too much scum and detritus with no chance of retrieving any balls.

Due to weather course was very wet, but at least open unlike others in the area. Greens in reasonable condition, good test to blow cob webs away after appaling weather.

Off the main Tees finally
Off the normal tees at last although given the fact the ball did not run due to the damp conditions it made for a "long" round. The greens were different again from last week running reasonably well. As I'm currently "bedding in" news clubs I did not score as well as I can but thoroughly enjoyed the round as it is a very good 9 hole course. Staff always friendly, food and drinks always first class.

Tower Course
The greens were in great condition for the time of year however the fairways were very boggy with balls plugging far too easily. In good conditions, this course is a pleasure to play for golfers who want to improve their game, however the views and value for money make it a good choice no matter the time of year. It also remains one of the only courses that operates a pay and play policy without the need to book a tee time.

27 hole venue and challenging
A 27 hole venue well worth a visit. Fantastically stocked shop, clubhouse is superb and staff were very welcoming. Some tricky holes to play and a good test for all handicaps. An enjoyable course to visit.

Good round spoilt on the 15th-17th unable to negotiate the water. Like the course, but you have to play carefully around the water hazards. Good 19th, reasonable food and beer, friendly staff.

Played the 9 hole course, which does what you expect and challenges on certain holes, but ita difficult to judge your game on such hrd surfaces where yiu have little control of the ball.
Think the club puts all its efforts in to maintaining the 18 hole course, but if they put the same effort in to the 9 hole then it would be a really nice little round.

Martin, Southampton rated 4 out of 5 - Nov 24 2016

Played here twice over the last 2 weeks. I'm in the area on training for a new job so have my clubs with me for my days off. Course is well looked after considering the time of year and the recent weather. No temporary greens, but all the tees were off the mats which are nearly impossible to get a tee into. Some interesting holes, couple of drivable par 4s for the big hitters and some long par 5s. The rough is pretty long in places so you do need to be accurate. Paid £15 for a midweek round, teeing off at 9:20. Got stuck behind some members on the 8th who would not let me play through even though I was by myself. Finished just after 1pm. Good driving range and American Golf shop on site. Would definitely go back.

Greens had been treated for winter preparation which caused putting to be slightly bumpy but course was in good nick besides the green on hole 3 being GUR so a very poor winter green was used which was not flat or cut!
