I found some of the front nine holes a challenge with there tight fairways and numerous water hazards, especially the back to back par 5's. Overall a very pleasant experience and would definitely play the course again.

Great course. Lovely conditions. Well presented layout. Buggie hire a tad expensive at £30. But overall a great day out.

We had a two ball booking and everything about the course and amenities were excellent.A well layed out course and well maintained.

Major disappointment was the pace of play as we were stacking up to play most holes on the back 9.It took us 5 hours for a 2 ball which ruined the overall day.

After playing the national course on a few occasions I had high hopes for the lakes course and I must say it didn't disappoint.The greens where in immaculate condition as where all other aspects of the course. My only gripe would be the amount of people on the course some walking some using buggys which affected the time of play on each hole.

This is a great course that requires strategy over power. Having played the Lakes before I was really looking forward to the challenge and would even consider membership until! The pace was ridiculously slow with two to three groups waiting on any given tee. No course marshals were on duty to alleviate this or quicken up the pace. Later found out that members are restricted to Saturday tee times depending on which in-house society you are invited to become a part of. Real shame !
