A bit wet but cheap and cheerful. Great restaurant and service. Range facilities are handy before tee off.

Played this course a few times now, played matchplay this time so got a bit more aggressive and most holes but didn't help my score! For a course that seems at the time relatively easy I just can't seem to score well on it which is maybe its hidden charm or in my case frustration. It feels like it should be fairly simple and you should be walking off every hole with a chance of par but I always end up writing bogey and can never figure out how I have not scored better. The greens were very wooly and slow on this occasion due to being treated and waiting for rain to come and bed it in. The pro did apologise and explain that we just caught in on a bad day.

Great price for a Sunday

First visit here and we found it very enjoyable. Worth the half an hour drive from Coventry.
?15 on a Sunday at 2pm is really good value.
The course itself is quite tight, lots of doglegs and bunkers.
Greens probably 7/10 abit patchy in places but we have noticed that at most courses since the lockdown.
One let down was a slow 4ball in front but it didn?t ruin our day.
We will be back

Friendly club with a thriving older membership.
The course is not too demanding with plenty of open space.

Worth a visit

I’ve Only ever played this course in the winter as it’s so popular in the summer there’s never any availability for the group that I play with.
Very damp cold condition and surface water on greens.
Still a good test of you golf skills

Lovely venue requires TLC

A lovely venue and interesting course spoilt by a lack of care. Greenside staff need to be more proactive especially with grass cuttings strewn everywhere. The course itself is very playable with good challenging holes. Clubhouse is a little tired and would benefit from an update as would the shop, which would serve a better purpose by having some stock in it. For all that said had a great day and the staff were helpful. The catering was very good.

Poor

This is a cheap course and you get what you pay for.
It is very bad in winter and poor weather. Inconsistent greens full of pitch marks. Playing from mats that are all different and not aligned correctly. Lots of bare muddy lies.
Also the young staff in pros shop are rude and unfriendly particularly to visitors.

Not sure the pins have moved for weeks??

Terrible greens with worn areas and edges of slopes etc, pitch marks galore and not cut! More weeds than my garden lawn. Rough is pretty much glover #WeedsAgain

You get what you pay for and £14 I feel I overpaid ????

Soon as we played the first green, motivation was lost and maybe should have walked in.
