Well established

I paid for a four ball with two adults and two children, my children don’t have a set of golf clubs yet as I was trying to introduce them to the game. My son aged 12 is very good and can keep up on the course. I was however shocked by other players who were not so happy that they were not carrying their own clubs and started shouting at us. I mentioned that I had paid full price for 18 holes we even missed a couple so that we didn’t hold anyone up, but It spoilt our game and the children were slightly upset. How are youngsters supposed to learn and enjoy a wonderful sport.

Beats me every time.

This is a really lovely 9 hole course. You can play it twice from different tees. It is a great course and nice friendly staff.

Course in decent shape

I’ve played here on and off for around 15 years but I have to say this year the course seems to be in really good condition. Staff were helpful on arrival. The course is ideal for people like me who possibly only get the chance to play half a dozen times per year, challenging without being overly difficult.
Good set up and for the price it’s ideal.

Unfriendly and unfair chairman

Was booked to play at this golf course on 9th june at 10.10am. Rang to cancel as it was pouring down and asked to move the tee time until the following week. Was told by the chairman that I couldn't unless i paid again. Don't think he was very helpfull at all and would not have been a problem at any other club. Wont be booking that course again.
