What the club says: The Club was established in 1929 and was originally a 9 hole course. In 2005 the course was extended to 18 holes. The course is a challenging test of golf with the new front nine holes being open scenic with superb greens. The back nine holes - the original course - are much tighter holes with tree lined fairways and with equally superb greens. Buggies (3) now available for hire. Contact Club to reserve

New course

Always fancied playing this course and enjoyed it played twice now and improved this time not the most testing course and the triangle is a little strange good value.

Very nice course I would highly recommend playing it. The greens were fast but could have done with being rolled

The course layout is very good. Nice fast green but they could have done with being rolled. They need to 're open the shop to have someone to speak to before yours round

Nice course, short but some narrow fairways! Greens ran true but needed a slight cut but were dressed the week before. Friendly welcome in the bar

Fantastic local golf course; Its a challenging course, although only 6000 yards long, and shows that its not necessary to increase the course length to make a challenging golf course. The Club House is a bit old fashioned but has an excellant atmosphere with friendly members willing to help. Would recommend it to anyone who wants a good day out.

course is in fair condition with greens and fairways pretty soft but at fair pace. Layout of course is unusual in that it is broken into three parts. Needs better signage between holes

Played here with a society and was made very welcome by the members and staff. The course was originally only 9 holes but once the newish front 9 matures to match the original back 9 it will be a great course. The course is set up superbly and the greens are very tricky for the novice where touch and pace are required to lag the ball close to the hole.
