What the club says: This 'well established' 18 hole course (6265 yards par 71) was originally designed by Peter Allis and Clive Clark but redesigned by David Williams in 1994. Since then the course has undergone extensive modifications including drainage and additional tees. The sand-based tees and greens, all built to USGA specifications allow the course to be played all year.

The weather was good and the greens were slow but true and the fairways were very lush.

A good course to play on a cold bright winters day! Greens are still in good condition although some ice to be expected in the bunkers.

Nice as always, seem to either be renovating the club house or have an issue there, the temporary one is fine though.

They are doing special deals during the week, the course has improved greatly since last year. At ?10 per round midweek it's very good value, the greens and fairways were in reasonable condition as you would expect for this time of the year

Good VFM. Could do with cutting back some of the long rough which is a bit too close to the fairway on certain holes for long hitters

Friendly atmosphere and course could be decent but let down by the shocking state of the greens.

Dry, patchy basically the worst greens I have played all year and I have played a lot of course. Hopefully they sort them out soon as I wont play again until confident they are fixed.

New management, very polite and doing remedial work on the course. Greens are true but recent dry weather has had an effect.

I've played this course for many years and always enjoyed my rounds. We played yesterday and the course has gone to pot. The rough was 2 /3 feet high so no chance of finding your ball. The second cut was more like rough so hard to play a decent recovery shot. The greens are in a terrible state, bumpy and hardly any grass on them. Won\'t be playing there again until they decide to put the course back to good playing conditions.

The clubhouse, there are no signs or indications that the clubhouse has moved, we had no idea and were standing around for a while until a member saw us and put us right. Once inside the young lady on the desk cannot be faulted she was polite and friendly and helpful as was the young man that was serving our coffee but why did we have to wait until 0830 for our bacon rolls it was booked for 0800 and we teed off at 0900 so this was a rush in the end. The rolls were nice.
The course, we have played here several times both privately and as part of this society and we have never known the course to be so poor. You have the fairways and deep rough nothing In between so a ball that just rolls off disappears in to deep cabbage rather than just the first cut. The bunkers were lacking in sand but made up for in stones and hard core. but the worst complaint my members and I have is about the greens considering this is the middle of spring where is the grass and why are they rutted and scarred, they were also hard as rock so much so that when I hit a good high shot into a par 3 the ball bounced like a tennis ball on the green and disappeared off the back. Some of the greens were almost unplayable.

The lunch was ok and as I said the staff were ok too.

I have been asked by my members and I agree with them that we do not return to this course next year.

We did notice that for a Friday in good weather the course was empty have you lost members and players due to the condition?

A course of two halves really. A lot of the holes were a bit 'samey' but that's being critical. Tees and fairways were in great condition but the greens were really poor; putting was a bit of a lottery on too many holes thanks to the poorly 'healed' aeration slits and grass cut down to the soil/moss. They've closed the old clubhouse and relocated it away from the course and worryingly it looks as though they're prioritising the new 4G football pitches that have gone up since my last visit. The course has great potential, its a shame the problems are such big ones. Will probably go back to give it another chance, but it's likely to be the last one given.
