Excellent golf challenge

We booked using the hot deal which was amazing value. There had been rain for a number of days but this was barely noticeable on the course.
Good challenge.

August Bank Holiday weekend

Played 1.30pm Saturday and with plenty 3-4 balls out round was 3 hours 45 mins, we were a 4 ball.

Despite a week of heavy rain course was in great condition with only a tiny amount of standing water on a couple of holes, most played as you'd expect for late summer.

Found the course challeging but fair. Better yardage markers on some of the holes would be useful for visitors but overall an enjoyable round and would highly recommend to all levels.

Outstanding layout

Although we had some very heavy rainfall and our local course was closed, we were pleasantly surprised how dry the course was another exceptional experience on a fantastic golf course. We also partook of the full English breakfast which was superb top marks to the chef, we will be returning in the very near future.
