What the club says: Set in over 160 acres of quiet, secluded private grounds, the 18 hole par 72 rolling parkland course is a test for golfers of all abilities. From the moment you drive through the historic wrought iron gates into the car park, call into the well stocked Pro-shop and take the short walk through the formal gardens to the 1st tee, all of life's modern day stresses will have left you to focus on the game ahead where you will enjoy what we consider, to be the best course in the county!

Well worth a visit

One of those outstanding courses that I always look forward to playing each year. A lot of money was spent on the course a few years ago, with some bunkers being filled in, new ones placed at more appropriate places, and loads of new turf around the greens. This is all now nicely bedded in, and the course looks the better for it.

This was my second round here this year, in the second of their 2 senior opens, which are held in March and October. The greens were absolutely superb, with my playing partners likening them to carpets of velvet, so the greens were very quick. Bunkers were looking good, and certainly the ones I found had plenty of sand in them, were nicely raked and played well. One playing partner thought the sand was quite heavy, and therefore took a little more clubhead speed to get through.

I had a chat with the pro, who mentioned that we were playing just ahead of their Autumn maintenance, which would include deep hollow-tining and top-dressing, so if you're playing soon after mid-October, I'm sorry you missed the perfection we had for our outing. I should mention the ponds, which, after some very dry spells, were looking very low on water, which was probably the only dowside to what is normally a very pretty course with many mature trees and nice views.

Food was included in our price, but it's always been good here, although I don't believe they open as early as they used to, so it would be best to check if you want a meal before your game.

I'm already looking forward to playing again in March next year.

Beautiful course, deceptive and traditional

A lovely traditional course, with undulating hills, quite tight fairways and very consistent greens. Virtually no water in play, and some deep bunkers. It is a bit up and down, but a buggy is unnecessary. The clubhouse is set within a large old country home, making it visually striking. Staff were nice, but I found the food uninspiring (Beef ready sliced for example.)

Great course with a variety of holes. Good undulation but not the longest trek and one you don't need a driver on many holes.

This is all now nicely bedded in, and the course looks the better for it.

This was my first round here this year, in the first of their 2 senior opens. The second one is in October. The greens had been top-dressed, but the sand was mainly washed in, so the greens were reasonably quick. Bunkers were looking good, and certainly the two I found had plenty of sand in them, were nicely raked and played well.

Perfectly kept greens and fairways

Long challenging and rewarding holes. Situated next to a 18 Century Hall classic parkland scenes . Perfectly kept greens and fairways. Practice area behind the hall small club shop but full of stock. Plenty of trees to drive over off the tee . Long cornering and steep fairways so a precise tee shot is key.

Simply Perfect

Great location , parkland with lovely fairways and smooth green. Tricky tee shots but game improver. The clubhouse facilities are great plenty of parking certainly will return.
