What the club says: This 18 hole park land course threads its way through magnificent mature trees and provides a challenge that is mastered by few. Its unique Manor Clubhouse is surrounded by a 12th Century moat, occupied by two deceptively serene white swans.
The extended course was designed by Gaunt & Marnock and incorporates modern specification greens which provide excellent playing surfaces throughout the year.
Whilst not extremely long by modern standards the 6008 yards have stood the test of time.
Most Helpful Review
I would recommend playing this course next year, The greens have been hollow tinned and are by far the slowest I have played all year and very bobbly. It was a great shame its a lovely course in a decent spot, some wierd tee and green positions but most holes are interesting and some demanding.

I didnt think much of this golf course during my travels up north, ok for a bit of fun but nothing special in the slightest hence a fair rating
Our golf society played this course for the first time and we will probably return again.
We had a friendly welcome.
It had been raining heavily the day before but still played on the summer greens.
There was 22 of us and we all had a great days Golf which was finished off with pie & chips & sweet all washed down with a pint or two.
You don't get an easy introduction here with a 200 yd par three, narrow long green guarded by a bunker atop a steep slope on the lower side and a canal to the higher side, this is indicative of the course, you can't just bang it and chip on most holes, course management is key.
The clubhouse is surrounded by an 11th century moat and is frequented by welcoming members and staff who are rightly proud of this interesting club.
This course is hidden away and pretty hard to find. Its obvious it is a really nice course. Unfortunately we played it after some high winds and bad weather which made it extremely boggy underfoot. I know this is true of many parkland courses but this was more than you would usually expect. One of our group had played it before in spring and said it was superb in nice confitions, which was easy to see how it would be. Would recommend but preferably in good weather

This course is a little gem. The clubhouse is unique with its moat and bridge entry. Unfortunately it does not have a pro shop. The course is testing and very tight. Be warned some holes have cross over or shared fairways and the 17th has footpaths, teeing over a green, a tee in your eye line and a road across the fairway.

Played on a cloudy day bud warm....great hospitality from Val
Played with my society recently. Course was in fantastic condition and greens were excellent. Only issue was with dress code. Club is very traditional and requires ankle socks/sports socks, even though I had played previously with trainer socks. Ladies are also required to wear 'longer' shorts! Steward was incredibly accommodating. Slightly spoilt an otherwise fantastic day. Excellent value for money. Food was good too!
Club members need to be aware that societies bring valuable amounts of money into clubs, rather than commenting on the length of peoples socks!!!
