Course in poor condition - faded eleganceThis may have been a championship standard course many moons ago. But not now. Played here a few years ago and standards have plummeted alarmingly! Tees with long grass, greens with poa annua (annual meadow grass) infestation. Bumpy greens in poor condition. Tine holes still visible with no top dressing to fill them in. Fairways with what appeared to be mole hills flattened down. Bacon bap before the round was in a very hard brioche bun. Oh and the coffee was out of a machine and luke warm. Not nice. However, the burger and chips after the game was very nice indeed.
Tee boxes need cutting. Greens are in a terrible condition , like trying to putt on a beach.
You can see that given time and money, this would be a great course to play but not in its present state.
Great course awful conditionI want to start this by saying I ran a society day here a couple of years ago & the course was brilliant a real challenge and great layout, the greens and fairways were brilliant. Yesterday I paid ?40 to play a course that was in awful condition the greens had work done on the 3rd of April (seen on previous review) and every green was bobbly it made putting a joke you would guess pace and line in the hope it would bounce the right way. Then to the fairways to be honest it was better to miss the fairway as more chance to have some grass under the ball, they were so patchy and it got worse on the back 9. I don't know the situation with covid but have played better cheap courses, they are also the only course I know/heard that hasn't got the course in playing condition within a few weeks and they have been open for near 6 weeks that's unacceptable.
Usually great but disappointedA great course in very poor condition. Unfortunately the pandemic has had a profoundly negative effect and the greens have just been timed and are extremely bobbly. The fairways seem quite hacked and could do with some maintenance. I love this course but was upset that for ?35 it was in such poor condition after months without being used.
Boggy hellhole£40 is expensive to play 1st nine twice off slippery tee mats. After a wet few days, ball plugged into greens and fairways, course should not be open in this condition. Feel ripped off.
PoorThis place is in need of some TLC. The pro shop is like a tuck shop. The chipping practise area is an overgrown mess, that looks like someones back garden. There derelict buildings dotted about, all very weird. The tees are a muddy lumpy mess, the bunkers are all covered in weeds, you get the picture. For ?35 this is a very expensive joke of a course. However the bar and food were excellent.
Not good!!Course was very untidy as no maintenance had been carried out so grass cuttings all over the course making it hard to find a ball that had just rolled off the fairway!!. Tee boxes were a joke in some places. With a bit of maintenance and care it could be a really nice course. However give t a miss until it improves.
What A ShameFirst impressions count. Mens locker room had no light over the stalls and one of the three seats in the stalls was broken. The course was not good. Allowing for the hollow tining - it has to be done - green staff had dumped cores on green surrounds. 13th hole GUR had no white line and no dropzone - and anyway the green is in such a state it should be closed. 16th green front fringe is appalling - again GUR white line and drop zone needed. Most tee boxes were lumpy and tufty. I went in two bunkers and my partner four and we had to send time in all removing hefty stones before playing - why risk dinging an expensive wedge - the worst bunker being on the right hand side front of the 18th green which had little or no sand and dangerous exposed tree roots. The new owners may consider getting to grip with some if not all of this and a lot more otherwise they will lose many long-term visitors (I have been going there for over ten years).
It has been in much better condition in the past eg tee boxes quite poor
It has suffered from a lack of maintenance possibly due the lack of rain and hot weather and the virus
Hope it recovers to former glory soon as a great course!!
1st 4 ball weekend after lock downBusy busy busy!
No social distancing that I could see as there were bacon rolls / burgers available to but=t=y before / after the round.
Pace was slow, with a busy course and as far as I could see lots of 4-balls. Conditions were ok at best but to be fair, I don't know how much the green staff have been able to do.
The whole place just feels a little 'shabby', rough tee boxes, grass clippings everywhere, bumpy greens. It's a shame because the course itself is inheretantly good, just needs some TLC.
(Round played: Jun-2020 - Score: 102 Handicap: 26)
last roundlittle gem and bargin weekender.clubhouse due to come down soon so in poor state
(Round played: Oct 2017 - Score: 94 Handicap: 20.6)
Looked after very well by the staff.
This course always was, and still is, tough and tight. Heavily wooded and lots of 'in play' water hazards. This is a tough test for average hackers but is obviously popular with them due to good deals offered by the club. So the rounds were very slow.
The course would really benefit from a 2 Tee start. Separating 2 balls from 3&4 balls. 1st and 10th tees are next to clubhouse, so surprised they haven't implemented. It would cut 5 to 51/2 hour rounds by at least an hour. Our 2-ball had a mixture of 2, 3 and 4 balls in front of varying standards who alternated between yellow and white tees whenever they felt like it. So course needs marshaling just to help keep the pace of play moving.
I liked the course and it's a great test of your game but probably won't return unless speed and etiquette improves.
i went with 8 mates whilst on golf tour found the reception from club very unhelpfull with the starter very critical of our drives despite two of our lads with low handicaps.we had booked 36 holes with an hour break for lunch.but the club changed the times at the end of the first 18 giving us 20 minutes for lunch,will not be going back
Great layout but disappointing conditionReally good challenging layout. Long but playable. Tees and fairways pretty good.
Greens poor though for late August and bunkers seem to have been abandoned (full of weeds!)
Needs some work putting into it! Wouldn’t rush back…
(Round played: Aug 2021, Handicap 8.3, score terrible!
