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.

Society visit

I played the course with my society in late April. When we arrived we were told that we would have to play under Winter rules which was that we wasn't allowed to play our ball from the fairways unless we used a rubber mat they had given us. (which was small and difficult to play off) and to compound things the greens weren't very good either. Overall It was a great disappointment as we were all looking forward to playing the course. Had the golf club informed us that the winter rules were still in place it wouldn't have been a problem, we would have simply cancelled and booked at a later date when the winter rules were off.
We have been coming to this course for a few years now but I doubt if we will be coming back which is a shame because it can be a nice course under the right conditions .

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 !
