This was a GolfNow deal - £32.50 each. Weather was good if a bit cold. The pro shop phoned me to say there was frost on the course and our round would be delayed by 45 minutes. We met the green keeper on the first tee who warned us which areas might be treacherous. In all honesty the course was in terrific condition considering the time of year - greens in particular were excellent.
So great customer service, lovely track and a good price. Highly recommended!!

Varied and challenging course in superb setting

This is a cracking course that has two distinct nines. The front nine winds around the valley at the bottom of this beautiful estate and has the river Bovey intersecting virtually all of its holes. The second nine is on higher, undulating ground and has more of a parkland/moorland feel including a number of blind shots on the closing holes.

The 3rd, 7th, 10th and 11th were particularly memorable/challenging holes while the 18th is arguably the toughest, saved until last.

It's not a particularly long course but presents a variety of challenges.

Our party booked two rounds and accommodation in the superb castle for only ?139 which was a real bargain and a visit here is highly recommended.

Wonderful

I note a few gripes about the prices of drinks. The course is part of a luxury (and amazing) hotel, so is to be expected. I live in Newquay and have played pretty much all the great South West courses like St Enedoc, Saunton and Trevose. I know they are links but this is the most beautiful and probably challenging. For mid-Winter it was also surprisingly firm. Wonderful course in wonderful setting.

Fantastic

Wow what a course. Played here on holiday, ?37.50 with full English so can't grumble! Golfers car park is a bit strange, about enough to hold 10 cars tucked out of the way. Front nine is great, plot your way around the river which flows through with tight greens, back nine, relax and swing away as it opens up. Very dry for time of year. In superb condition, greens quick and testing. Overall loved this track, one of my top ten, so if your on holiday, Chuck your clubs in and play...it's millionaires golf in the week!!

Lovely course set in and around the grounds of the castle/hotel. Great variety amongst the course. Front 9 is probably slightly more diverse than the back but I thoroughly enjoyed all of it. Major changes in elevation as you go round and water comes into play here and there. Well worth playing if you get the chance. Would love to have another go.

The course was in magnificent conditions although the bunkers were almost impossible and like cement.
