Very Very poor customer service!!!
I had a 4 ball booked for bank holiday Monday as a friend was making his yearly visit to Durham from his home in Cambridge. When he visits we usually play at my local course which is Mt Oswalds in Durham and over the years this has become a customary thing. I have recently played Sharperly & liked it so suggested that we change venues and play there instead. I booked the T off time weeks in advance with no problem and 24 hours before we were due to play I rang up again to confirm and also to check that the course had a set of left handed clubs for hire for our visiting friend. I was told that this was no problem and the clubs would be waiting for us upon our arrival.
We duly arrived the next day and on going to the club house we were told that the staff had "lost" the hire clubs and could not find them. The two members of staff were full of apologies & we waited while they tried to find the clubs. Some time later there were still no clubs. By this time we were concerned that our T time would be completely lost and our friend was growing increasingly frustrated.
To cut a long story short, the clubs could not be found, our friend ended up having to leave the course without playing and the three of us T'd off 15 minutes late.
We had been looking forward to playing as a 4 ball & this left us bitterly disappointed. The most forgiving word I can give the course is Amateurish. If there was any problem with the hire clubs, they had my number, they should have contacted me, then we would have had time to try & book elsewhere.
To exacerbate matters further, when I returned home I emailed the course to inform them of my dissatisfaction, I did receive a reply but it was very non descript and really seemed like they weren't particularly bothered. I am yet to receive a reply from my further email, I think this says it all..

This is a young course which has some real interesting holes & features. Because of this shocking customer service however I shall not be returning, nor shall I be recommending it to any of my associates.

Played the course on 14th June, this is a very good winter course but a very poor summer course. It seems like all the effort goes into keeping the course in good condition all year round but I think it really suffers in the summer months. There are some much nicer courses in the area to play when the weather is nice, I expect a lot more £18! The greens were thin & quite muddy in places and as a result really slow. The course is still quite new but it really quite featureless.
When the weather is poor this place is great but if the sun is shining go somewhere else.

Quite a new course. One of the dryer courses around Tyne and Wear due to be close to the coast. Once the trees develop, this course will very nice. Facilities need improvement

Course is always challenging, greens were slightly bumpy..
