What the club says: The parkland course is sited on the world's first nature reserve. Charles Waterton a pioneering Victorian naturalist created the nature reserve in 1820 and he dedicated his life to preserving the local wildlife in this area, and today we still share the park with all manner of wildlife. The golf course was designed by Simon Gidman and opened in 1995.
The design cleverly exploits the 200 acres available, creating a spaciousness not found in many courses set in smaller areas. The par 72 course has been built to extremely high standards with USGA specification greens and tree-lined fairways. The club prides itself on the condition of the course especially its fairways and greens, the greens are in play all year round.

Awesome

The course is in fantastic condition from tee box to green, and meanders through woods with great views,there is some walking between holes but it doesn?t distract from your round. There are some long par 4?s but overall it?s a great test of golf

Great course, good value!

Played here following a friend's recommendation and will be sure to thank him via SMS shortly.
We paid £30 each for a lunchtime tee-time and found a great and challenging course in excellent condition. The track is built in rolling countryside and gave us a decent workout (thank goodness for electric trollies!).
Would recommend a visit to anybody.

Great Condition and Value

Such a lovely course when in this condition. We paid ?25 for this course and would certainly come back again (and again). Some great layouts and the fairways were cut immaculately. Three of our four ball had never played there before and thought it was one of the best courses they had played ever. Certainly one you should visit and enjoy if you are local to the course. We will be going there as a society in the next few months and we cannot wait !

Difficult golf course but had my A game. Putted well on difficult greens.

The 19th is poor no food and a barmaid who was totally not interested in her job.

Good track

Nice layout. Fairways although good are a little too narrow in places eg par 5 16 where you have about 25 yards to lay up in. Greens not up to usual high standard but it looks as though they are being treated, puttable but not as true and smooth. Definitely worth a knock if you've never played in especially when costing £21.

Excellent

Played on a very warm July Friday afternoon. The course was in very good condition. A little hilly in places with plenty of interesting holes, nothing that could really be described as straight up and down. A good selection of tees to play off that test all skill levels. Greens were very good even though they'd been lightly sanded. Would recommend. A good putting green as well as excellent practice facilities.
