Course is a good test of golf with plenty of risk for the golfer that decides to go for everything, however off yellows, rather than driver you should probably plot your way around the course with an iron from the tee on 2, 4, 6, 7, 9, 15 and 18 rather than driver.
The course is well layed out and has some excellent feature holes (12th, 14th my personal favourites) but with so many society players, the course suffers a little from un-repaired pitch marks, but beware, the worse part about the track is that it is 4 and half hours per round, minimum. On the Sunday we played it was well over 5 hours. Part of the reason for this is that the course is not geared up for societies as the rough is too long and typically means anyone that is a little wayward has probably lost their ball.

The buggies were a little overpriced.
The drinks are massively overpriced, but you wouldn't have expected anything else from a De Vere hotel. (fortunately we had a 30% discount on drinks).

The venue is okay, and for the money we paid via YGT, the golf and food was excellent value but it could have been so much better.

What was a surprise was the poor service. Very impersonal and geared towards a corporate market.

There was almost non existent waiting staff in the restaurant, we effectively cleared our own plates and they had run out of deserts and biscuits for the cheese and had no port. At times there was only 1 person behind the bar trying to serve about 30-40 people. Service was slow!!! some of the chaps even cancelled their lunch orders it was taking so long.

All rooms were booked as twins and yet many of the group were allocated double beds. It shouldn't be that difficult for a major hotel chain to get that right.
.
Having said that, purely for the golf, then I guess if it wasn't for the fact that we are 100 miles away, yes I would play it again. But I wouldn't go out of my way to play it unless I was already in the area and knew that I wasn't going to be stuck in a 5 hour round, so choosing the right tee time is crucial.

Good luck.

The greens had been dressed a few weeks ago and they were rolling very true. The tees looked like they had suffered from a hard winter. The rough is cut long and is thick - you need a good ball spotter.
The course is a very interesting park land course with plenty of blind tee shots and you really need to think your way around the course. If you play this for the first time - buy a yardage book, or use a GPS app.

Good course we'll laid out offering a definate challenge especially for the higher handicapper like me. The bunkers were in good conditions with plenty off sand and very well placed .The greens were a bit thin and rock hard but hadn't rained in a while also great value at £15 on tee off times. Now my moans the fairways were good but you had better stay on them because the rough was a joke it averaged 2 foot deep and one bit on the left of the 16th was 4ft I understand golf should be a challange but for the higher handicapper (27) this was to much must have lost 7 balls won't go back till I've improved.

Greens very good, Fairways need another cut, otherwise really good. Changing rooms need updating to match the rest of the facilities.

A good challenging course with many varied holes. Condition of the tees was terrible. The fairway, bunkers and greens were good but not fantastic. Pace of play very slow with buggies with players driving round looking for empty holes to play on.

Great value stay

Course was not in the best of condition (not many are at the moment) but definitely playable and was an interesting layout. Plenty of bunkers and water. Drinks were expensive but if you were staying you had 20% off the bar bill, pint of Peroni was £4:50. Evening meal was excellent but breakfast awful due to the food being cold. Rooms and service good. £99 was a great deal for 2 rounds, bed and breakfast and evening meal.

This is a very pleasant course, with lots of wide fairways and smooth running greens. At 6500 yards from the yellows it's not a short course, but it probably plays a little shorter than that.

My biggest issue is with the price and quantity of the food in the bar, which is both expensive and not especially generous in its portion size. I guess that when your main business is as a conference centre, you can afford to rip people off when those buying are putting it on expenses.

Tough course when playing directly into the wind. Fairways are generous but the the thick rough is punishing. Club house area is being rebuilt after fire.

Recently built course that will mature well. A few lack lustre holes that are quite forgettable and not the longest in existence ... probably four/five holes which are less 350 in length. Definitely Home advantage as some holes can smash a driver to more favourable positions.
Overall well kept, greens a little slow when I played though.

although the course is in fair condition, a lot of fairways are extremely narrow(not enjoyable I\'m sure for higher handicap golfers. I certainly wont play there again) and if they want to attract lower handicap players the whole course should be of a much better quality. some of the rough quite frankly is stupid

The golf course was very nice. The holes were varied made you think a bit. Placing of long irons important. Would like to play again as I would play slightly different. The bar as most bars connected with a hotel was pricey. £22 for 4 drinks is a bit steep. Still £12 for a round through Tee times fantastic value!
