Have not played this course for nearly three years as having played before I did not have fond memories Of the quality and in particular the pace of play due to overbooking . After playing yesterday I could not speak highly enough about the quality of work that has gone into the upkeep and in paticular the quality of the greens. Staff were very friendly and helpful and I shall definitely be returning sooner rather than later. All in all challenging days golf and very good value

We have played here over the years and am always pleasantly delighted to see the improvements to the course and amenities. The clubhouse is not used enough, the staff are super friendly and apart from society do's its quiet. So come on Bulbury Management put your thinking caps on and put yourselves out there

Really liked the staff and friendliness in the clubhouse, the course however well kept was playing really fast when I was there, made the greens almost unreadable and really difficult to play. May try again in the winter it after a wet spell, hopefully it may play a bit softer.

We really enjoyed playing here. Some tricky holes, but nothing impossible even for a female higher handicapper - who can hit the ball a reasonable way off the tee.

My first ever round and was impressed, great value and the staff were very helpful and friendly. The course itself is fairly challenging with some very enclosed fairways making straight tee offs much needed. Lovely setting and although near to a busy main road it was very quiet. The only thing I would say that the course could benefit from would be a driving range. Will be returning.

Wettest day of the year and I decide to play golf! From the phone call to the course in th morning to check the course was still open to the minute we left the staff were really friendly! Course was wet but better than most I've played in the conditions. Course is great if a little narrow but that's the challenge! Had a great time!

Was really looking forward to going back here as had a few enjoyable rounds here in the last few years but the course was in really poor condition. Despite the fact we haven't had much rain recently there were a lot of boggy areas and some of the temporary tees were ridiculous (including one mat dumped on a sloping path!) Greens were beyond awful, not one of our group had a bobble free putt all day and the areas around the holes had slopes that saw some balls roll back again! Greenkeeper needs to up his game considerably. Massively disappointin, I'd avoid until high summer!

Played late February. Greens were not in good condition and bunkers were a little firm. Got stuck behind a society who were struggling with the right fairways and having to shape shots. Disappointed with the greens but hey it's winter golf and I'm sure during the summer it would be a lot better. Will definitely play again. But would pick a day when it's not as windy. This course will bring you back down to earth if you think you've mastered the game.

With it's beautiful, mature tree lined fairways and sweeping slopes of greenery it sets an ambience that makes you feel totally encapsulated in a place where time stands still. No matter how bad your score card looks, this course is an experience that leaves you with a smile on your face as you walk off the 18th green. The set-out is near perfect, I used every club in my bag, having to hit draws and fades to navigate around the tall poplars that tower over the course. The greens were lightning fast and in very good condition. This course would suit golfers of all abilities, it's worth playing just for the pleasant walk.

My favorite course I've played so far. 10/10.
