greens spiked and lots of pitch marks - poor for a course of this cost and prestige

Great course worth visiting

Clearly a 5/star venue and therefore drinks and food costs reflect its status. The course was a pleasure to play, a challenging layout with excellent greens. Hope to return to play the Mizuno event next year.

A real treat to play a top course, a shame the greens had been dressed that morning, leaving them harder to read. A tight course means accurate placement is essential

Played in a society event which had been rescheduled after cancellation due to frost in December.
The course was in good condition although the greens looked a bit patchy but played well. Greens were fairly fast despite recent top dressing and rain during the previous day. Several greens were quite undulating and punishing for a slightly misplaced approach shot. Good service from the golf staff including reception, valet parking, shoe cleaning and massage chairs. Complimentary tees, ball markers and yardage charts. Good carvery food although drinks were quite expensive.
Worth the expense for an occasional outing.

A good golf course in good condition. The facilities have a very corporate feel to them, although the staff were very friendly and attentive.

Amazing Golf Course, but very expensive.
You get round in good time as course is fairly clear.
Customer service is better than any I have ever experienced, I guess you get what you pay for on that front. Would like to play again, but price is prohibitive.

Good golf course but certainly not worth paying the full green fee. Half price represents fair but not great value. Good practice facilities and welcoming staff. Course very well looked after and greens a good speed.

great course

great course and one I've wanted to play for a while.
considering the rain we had it was pretty dry and the greens were a decent pace with lots of very subtle breaks.
all the staff were friendly.
my company has a corporate golf arrangement with lots of clubs so this was a freebie but I am not sure I would pay to play there out of my own pocket

This in my view is a lovely track. Most holes are quite memorable in one way or another. Our only gripe was the tee boxes were poor. Greens were very good and consistent.

The club have done a first class job regarding COVID and thank the lovely lady on reception for her upbeat rapport.

Well done Caddington
