The course was in superb condition, it had some challenging holes but overall an ideal course which suited my style of play the green's were the most challenging part of the course but i really enjoyed the challenge of them.

I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking for a challenge i will be playing again soon.

It was one of the hottest days of the year when we played at Woodlake Park. The course is well off the beaten track, down a succession of single track lanes, but is well worth the effort.

Had some lunch in the clubhouse before playing, and sat overlooking the 18th green with views the reservoir and hills. The bar staff were welcoming as was the professional in the club shop

It's well worth buying a course planner if playing for the first time, as there are some unusual twists to the first couple of holes amongst others. For the first six holes you gradully climb to the highest point of the course, affording lovely views over Lllnadegfedd Reservoir. The 7th is a par 3 with the green about 100 feet below the tee. Not surprsingly hte 8th is straight back up one of the steepest hills on a golf course I've faced!

The second nine is very nice too, and the course benefits someone who plots there way around rather than someone who takes a driver on most holes that they can.

All in all a top course

A beautiful course in a wonderful location. The greens are tricky to read, so makes you think about your putting and they're very quick it's easy to putt off of some of the greens as they are upturned saucers. But they are true if when you find the line.

It's a hard walk so if mobility is an issue get a buggy. Because of the hills you will get a lot of up/down hill lies. You will need to play this course several times to work out where you need to be as there are a fair few blind shots. Well worth every penny. Would be a member here if I lived close enough.

Really enjoyed playing this course for the first time. The whole time my friend are I were there staff and members were welcoming and friendly.

The course was in brilliant condition for this time of year and even though the greens were soft the pace of them was fantastic.

I'd recommend this course to players of all abilities.

I will definitely be returning here soon
