What the club says: This well established (over 20 years) course is parkland with mature tress and numerous water hazards to trap the unwary. The fairways are generous, the green receptive and the semi rough is kept quite long to penalise a wayward shot. 84 bunkers are placed strategically to test your full repertoire of shots.

The Baroness Course

Strange setup. The accommodation looks very tired - quite pleased this was a round of golf, not an overnight stay. The pro shop was totally empty. Apparently the pro has upped and left!! Didn't bode well: however the course was OK. The condition of the fairways was good. The greens were slow and could do with a bit of TLC but overall it's a nice course.

Its really not golf!

Wow oh wow!!
Hadn't played here for a while due to its poor condition throughout but got invited via a friend so thought I'd give it a go.
What a mistake that was. I have never seen a golf club in such poor state of repair and condition throughout.
The once hotel shut, pro shop which was excellent now shut, kitchen not serving any food due to it being shut down. We subsequently found out via a staff member that EHO had closed it.....wow!
We had to check in for golf in the bar and staff had no clue on golf. I really wasn't expecting the course to be up to be a we were not wrong. A farmers field is better prepared for golf than this place, I could go on about it but would take far too long. The place is appalling, lacks atmosphere is non-existent as there is nobody there. Service standards are non-existent and there is no care or attention & above all no investment for what seems and looks like 20 years!
Avoid at all costs as otherwise you will be as fed up as us.
Simply attrocious.

There’s more to golf than this!

Having not played this course for at least 18 months and wanting an early Saturday morning round I decided to give the course another chance. Teeing off at 8am alone I expected to make short work of it and be home before my crumpets had cooled....how wrong I was!!!

The pro shop is now the bar and unsurprisingly is manned by bar staff with no knowledge of golf and seemingly no interest!

I was stuck behind a 3-ball from the 3rd hope to the 9th who refused to allow me to play through, completely unaware of basic etiquette and despite numerous opportunities!

I did however manage to rescue two pensioners and a Great Dane from the numerous canyons that can be found on fairways and greens alike! The tee boxes were rougher than a tramps beard!

I know it’s been a challenging summer for green keepers but without sprinklers or rakes in bunkers what chance have these guys got? The management simply don’t care! Any investment has been spent on signage reminding visitors that ‘practice facilities’ are for members only!

There’s greater golf experiences out there, such as Pirates Cove down Great Yarmouth seafront! The people, the course, the facilities.....dreadful!

Laughable & Grim

Played 2 weeks ago during the very warm period & accept that all clubs fairways are brown but come on, the greens were also brown in lots of places with massive cracks in them where you could put your fingers down! Clearly they are not watering their greens to save money or its not working. I'd go for the latter as upon arrival there was nothing in the alleged shop, not even golf balls, which my mate needed to buy, so we had to lend him so between us to last him.

Food was also non-existent as apparently the kitchen has been closed down due to standards, according to a couple of downbeat members we spoke to.
All in all a very sad experience and one we won't be repeating, which is a shame as he layout is quite nice.

Worth a visit.

Played the longer of the two courses on offer, The Baron, Great course,played after the really heavy rain and was a little worried, fairways were a little soggy, but the greens were in tip top condition, varied course, fair punishment for wayward drives. Used the bar and facilities after, staff all very helpful and quick service. All in all an excellent golf day.

The rough was not cut back enough. May be due to the weather but this needs to be kept on top of.

A fair test

A decent course, but suffering from the bad weather at the time. Good value and a good course for high handicappers. Not too long and good variety. Really enjoyed paying the course again, despite the weather.

Poor golf course

The complex and both golf courses look neglected, heavily underinvested and lacking quality course management! The course was untidy, all playing surfaces we’re overgrown, with scatterings of cut grass everywhere, and all course furniture was surrounded with weeds and long grass. The greens were covered in debris and hadn’t been cut for a while and the bunkers were messy with no definition around the edges and lined with weeds. Aesthetically poor condition and a shadow of its former self! A shame, but would recommend spending your money on a round elsewhere!

Hmmm.....

Played on a dry weekday and the place was deserted.
If you love a quiet course these are for you. If you enjoy well presented courses stay away, the place is a bog and very unkept and all areas of the course were weak, especially the greens with bare patches and I think the rough at my club would be quicker to putt on.

Obviously clubhouse was equally as quiet and staff seemed totally unmotivated as there were no smiles or welcome!
Kitchen is also closed so we left and went to the pub in the way home which was so much welcoming with good beers and food.
We won't be rushing back.

I have only played the Baroness course which is the easier of the 2, the course is well layed out but the greens are patchy in areas and could do with some extra care

Good place for a golf break but.....

The courses are both interesting but in need of a haircut as the rough is long right from the first cut. A decent challenge on both.
When we were there the Pro had just left and taken all his stock with him so the reception / shop was deserted which wasn't the most encouraging sight.
Food was, at best, ok but adequate for a large group.

Great Big Course!

Having read a recent review, we were a little dubious about the state of the course but we really had nothing to worry about. Warmly welcomed in the clubhouse whilst waiting for the pro shop to open and given some tips for play. Made our way to the Baron and suprised how good the course was playing. Tee boxes maybe a little long but not a problem. First cut rough sometimes a little clover filled and you may need to club up, which you learn pretty quickly. The actual rough is tough to find your ball and get out of, but with the size of the fairways you really have no business being in there! Bunkers in good condition but not much sand. Greens were a delight - Very good condition and not overly fast. Suprised with the number of Par 4s and Par 5s and really is a massive course that we will be challenging again along with the Baroness.
