After returning as guest from being a member for many years, it actually broke my heart to see what Saul Developments team have done to the place. The girl on the front desk had the nerve to charge me £25 for 18 temps after being told by the pro it was £22 - disgusting !\\The course is worse than average, the staff need a full qualification in customer service and how to treat people with respect \\Enter that pro shop at your peril - I will never return to this place , and cannot tell enough people about how bad this place has become \\

Beware - winter greens!

Booked on Teeofftimes. However there was no warning that winter greens were in play - even at the end of August.

Disappointing that the club (under new buyers) no longer takes 2-4-1 vouchers from the Purple Book, thus rendering the round overpriced at £30 per player. I am not aware of the club publicising this fact, eg by their website. The course is undergoing maintenance but the greens are still good and the fairway ok. The club is obviously seeking to maximise revenue as our tee time was immediately after a ladies' medal, which was itself after the mens' medal. To be fair, the ladies fourball in front were not particularly slow but we were held up on the front 9 for most of the holes.

Disappointing 6

Not impressed with a course I haven't played for 20 years and won't be hurrying back. Possibly the recent wet weather probably hasn't helped but still not a course that I would wish to play anytime soon. There are clearly issues with tee times as ours was over 30 minutes late due to presumably poor management of allocated starting arrangements.

Badly run club

I used to be a member here but now only visit occasionally.

The new owners are clearly in it for short term profit. A big part of a successful club is value for money and being respected as a customer. Try ringing the pro-shop, generally no answer. Try ringing the main office, generally no answer. Driving range ball dispenser not been updated since the new £1 coins came in so generally unusable. Concessions for BIGGA members? No. Try turning up at 5.30 in the height of summer - all locked up. And the cost of a round? Way too high for the overall experience.

Having said all of that, the guy in the pro-shop is very polite and amenable, the fairways are good and the greens very good.

Watch what happens when the new course opens nearby.

Beware the thick rough. This has the potential to be a great course. However, due to the thick thick rough, some of it very close to the fairways, I found it very penalising - in fact it was unfair. I don't write this review after a poor round, it is a fair review. I missed four fairways and lost three balls. Not a course I would recommend for an enjoyable round of golf.

Nicely Kept Course, Bit Pricey

Always in lovely condition as the course is well protected in winter, there are also really good winter tees which help. The course itself has been tidied up over the last few years and its made it much better to play, but it costs ?30 a round and thats just too much compared to local options. Often hard to get a drink or food because of the lack of staff there during the day time. If they get the developments up and running which have been promised for a while now, it could be worth re-visiting. Until then, its a nice course, but needs to be more like ?20-25 to play.

test yourself, its a good course

This is really my home course having been a member previously. Its a difficult course and the rough is getting back to being very punishing. The greens and surrounding approaches are superb but yesterday the fairways were really hard and parched, we haven't had any rain for a few days and it shows.
