What the club says: A quaint 9 hole course measuring 2190 yards over undulating parkland. Opened in August 1996 & designed by local course designer Jeff Shuttleworth, the course was constructed by South African Craig Cooke, who had previously reconstructed parts of the famous Loch Lomand course in Scotland and the Valderama in Spain.

Getting there, but is too late?

Last year the course seemed to enter a drastic decline.
I have played a few times this year. The teeing grounds still leave a lot to be desired, that is being kind, they dan awful. The greens and fairways appear to be getting some much needed tlc.
This said I do wonder if it is all too late, having spoken to a number of players they are reluctant to part with the small green fee to play what had become a course which at best could be termed a laughing stock.
I played twice last week, at a time, when, once upon a time you couldn't move for pensioners like me, I had the whole course too myself, consolation, I found 15 golf balls.
It is sad that a once lauded 9 hole golf course is reduced to being plyed by about a dozen members and gangs of young men who walk on without paying and proceed to treat the course with utter distain.

Gone downhill

The course used to be fairly decent. Greens are really poor and the fairways are like rough long 2-3 inch grass. Was very disappointed.

Challenging course. Not the best kept but expect that for the cheap prices. Can't be beat for membership costs. Will definitely keep you on your toes.

The tees are dried mud, with the odd patch of grass. Fairways were long grass that desperately needed cutting. The rough therefore was brutally long. The greens are very hairy, bobbly and in very poor condition. I didn't go in any bunkers so can't comment. I know it gets wet in the winter and so they've probably struggled to get on and mow it with the wet weather. But it does need some TLC. There are some nice holes with some risk/reward shots over water. The views up to Rivington are lovely. The driving range, pro shop and welcome were first class.

Crap,not been taken care of,didn't look like it had been mown for weeks,long grass on tee box,s felt like you were teeing off in the rough,fairways not mown and no first or second cut of rough just really long grass at the sides very difficult to get the ball out of,a shame really as this could be a very good little nine hole golf course as its very tricky to play as there are a lot of ponds on the course a lot of money needs to be spent on this course.

Does anyone actually look after this course??

Without a doubt, the scruffiest, most unkempt course you'll ever play.

Awful 'Impossible to find a flat part' Tees playing to Uncut and yet again Awful Greens.

It's a shame, as the course layout isn't that bad...It could be so, so much better.

A testing, tight 9 hole course ideal for a Sunday. Be sure to frequently refer to the course map as it can be a bit confusing navigating round.

Not much opportunity to use drivers, but hazards are well placed meaning its good for learning how to plot your way around.

Lovely little course ideal for a quick 9 holes. There are quite a few water hazards around the short course though which make for a tricky round.

Greens ok, some missing flags which is poor.

fairways could have been better defined, but not bad if you fancy a quick round.
