Despite the shortness of this course, your average golfer better not let their guard down. Narrow holes means accuracy is a must. Too easy to watch an errant shot sail OB never to be seen again. Except for a couple of greens in rough shape, most greens are a true test with easy to moderate difficulty. Sand bunkers are more like dirt bunkers which require a more aggressive swing. An overalll pleasant two hours working the irons.

The course is under new management so we thought we'd give it a try. Staff are friendly. As for the course, they are trying to improve things but it is still in much need of repair. The ground was so hard at most t-boxes that you couldn't push your tee in. The greens were rough... with some dry ones looking like the lunar surface, while a couple along the west side of the course being so soft your tee shot literally sinks into the green, with no bounce... looks like someone stepped on you ball. A shallow shot ball will bounce out of a bunker. Its called an exec par 3, but it's a really short course... and with a few nicer par 3's in the area it will have a hard time competing. Makes me wonder if it would be more successful, redesigned as a long-hole 9 hole course? I wouldn't recommend it, unfortunately.

Cheam has a decent driving range to practice at. The course itself is for beginners. I have played it several times when I'm with friends that don't play much or not at all.

Lots of people walk-in the course, which slows the game down.

Nothing special when it comes to maintenance of the course. They cut grass, have tee, boxes and greens.

Great for kids as well. The short holes can build confidence with all ages.

Our group of six play this course every week. It has a few tricky areas, but we look forward to the challenge each week. We always play 18 holes. Nice course to walk, but also have carts available.<br/> Since new management this spring, they are working at improving the greens and doing a great job.<br/> They restaurant also is seeing improvements and has good quality food choices.

As a semi exec course it offers a good short game challenge for golfers. Small greens, odd distances bring elements into a game that a typical course Par 72 fails to provide. Try it, it may humble you more than you think.
