What the club says: A pretty parkland course, surrounded by mature woodland, with lush fairways and excellent greens watered from natural underground springs. The nine hole course is relatively short but very challenging, The course record is 67 - scored by Andy Francis. Created in 1970 and extended through a mature wood in 1987, the many natural springs have been tamed into water features which are home to a varierty of wildlife.

Nice little course that is now drying out. Clubhouse a bit old fashioned and very dark needs lightening up. Excellent bar food Ham eggs and chips £4.50 really good and great value. Pretty busy for a Thursday.
