The course measures 6,119 yards (par 70 off the white tees), 5,833 yards (par 69 off the men's yellow tees) or 5,208 yards (par 70 for the ladies). Visitors will be particularly well received by the resident PGA Professional, Sean Owen. Enjoy the relaxing atmosphere of this wonderful course and its superb facilities.

Great course

A superb heathland golf course set around the rolling moors.
It's a superb course & well worth playing if you're in the area.

Absolute Cracker

What a superb golf course, from first to last it was excellent.
The shop were great, the locals were friendly & polite & even one of the green keepers said hello!
Add all that to a superb heath land golf course with amazing views & you've got a great experience.
The course is superb, no hole is the same with loads of slopes, valleys & hills. The greens were the best I've seen this year, kudos to the locals (& kudos to Craigers) as there were hardly any pitch marks. Look out if you get a downhill putt, the slightest touch can have your ball steaming past the hole & even off the green.
What's even more remarkable is that it rained pretty much all day the day before & yet you wouldn't have known looking at the course condition.
In summary an absolute cracker

tough course and physically challenging

A real challenge with fast and difficult greens. Local knowledge would help as some of the fairways and greens are totally blind. Still worth a return visit.

Always a challenge

Earmarked as the hardest course of our charity day, the course was clear for us and in good condition. Good fitness training up and down hills.

Nice - hilly - course. The first looks intimidating, and the steep uphill gets the blood pumping.
Some nice holes.

Greens are lovely

Course looked great, greens running very true.
Fairways a little too firm but that's a personal preference, made it a little difficult around the greens.

Great Challenge

We play this course regularly and still it’s a very interesting. No two holes are the same with a variety of challenges, plus you rarely get a flat lie. Added to this are the fabulous views especially from the higher part of the course.

Stunning Views

Regularly play this course which is usually in excellent condition and has some stunning views. Each hole is different presenting so all parts of your game will be tested - not a flat Course but the extra exercise is worth it - otherwise buggies are available to hire.

Wonderful golf course

Straight from the off, you're challenged by a fantastic looking golf course. The views the whole way round are amazing and the course more than matches those stunning views. A very challenging course with lots of blind tee shots, but unlike many courses, the black and white marker posts actually correspond to where you need to hit your tee shot. Mind you err and you can find yourself in a whole heap of trouble. My first visit to this fabulous and very welcoming club, but it won't be my last. All round a fantastic days golf.
A huge pat on their back, for all who work hard to make it such a great place to play golf.
