Good challenge for all players
Course was enjoyable to play with a good mixture of holes to challenge players of all abilities. The downside was the walking between finishing a hole and the next tee and the Courses general wetness underfoot. That said, staff were friendly and we all enjoyed playing the course for the first time. Will hopefully be back to play again.
First time I’ve played the course in about 20 years and pleasantly surprised with the ‘new’ layout and overall course condition, particularly given the heavy rain in the previous week.
I won’t leave it so long to play again.
Great course, friendly staff
Nice course layout, bit of a journey between some of the tree's but nothing to crazy. Course has a good mix of difficulty, so good option if you are looking for a challenge.
Staff were fantastic and really helpful
Good course and great value. Just avoid after rain
Great course, with a good layout and challenging with its requirement to keep it in play on the tight holes. Thoroughly enjoyed it, only criticism is the water logging. We played on a clear sunny day but the course was still soaking on the majority of holes from the day before, clearly they have drainage issues but it didn’t distract from a good round. Will be back
Course was looking great & playing well & not too wet even after the previous nights heavy rain.
Greens were fast .
Major problems with drainage
Course was in poor condition due to the rain. 3 temporary greens were in place. For the price paid should of been better.
Tough course but good for dog walking
Played there for the first time last week. First green was terrible but other greens were in good conditions. Tight course with a bit of difficulty to navigate through if you’ve not played there before. I was taken back when I looked up after putting tee down on hole 3 or 4 to find this massive dog trotting towards me! And that became the theme thereafter. Won’t play there again. Didn’t have much interaction with staff apart from being greeted outdoors to confirm my name and showing me way to first tee. No scorecard was given due to COVID-19.
Challenging but enjoyable
I booked this through golf now and played on my own. Due to the Covid restrictions the tee times were spaced out so no issues with pace of play. Overall a fantastic course in a beautiful setting. The course was in good condition even with the rain. Some of the holes were extremely tight and tree lined so accuracy is essential. I certainly lost a few balls but it didn't ruin my experience. I would definitely like to play again.
A course of two halves
I struggled to make my mind up on this course.
I booked through golf now and despite a tough covid19 lockdown situation the staff were friendly and hopeful with no problems with our booking.
Some holes are fantastic, dramatic views, interesting layouts, clever bunkering - the back 9 is far superior to the front 9.
Other holes are stupid and feel just like a route to another part of the property with no thought to the hole itself.
My opinion needs context, I’m a 27 hcp, it was pouring with rain and I didn’t know the course. I’m sure they’ve all influenced my opinion.
The course needs hole maps, too many blind tee shots where you have no idea where you’re going. Too many tight tree lined tee’s. But some holes are fantastic (12 in particular) and the course was in great condition.
I really liked it
If you like tree lined parkland courses you wont be disappointed, this one is very picturesque.
Very tight in places which sees some good shots land in bad spots, so it is tough and frustrating at times but I'd definitely recommend.
Booked a round via golf now over a week ago, got the confirmation email. drove to the club to be met with a hostile member of staff, he told me I didnt have a booking. He wouldnt even check the confirmation I had in my hand.
No attempt to help or look at getting another tee time booked.
Why bother when other clubs would welcome the business rather that treat visitors like an inconvenience.
Unfortunately, when guests behave in a threatening manner which you did, we will refuse them access to the course. Before we could even offer a solution, you were the one being hostile with you behaviour and language. We are happy to help and accept all guests, only if they behave like an adult, which you certainly didn't.
Had a great time at this course 1st time but will definitely be back and highly recommend
