Could be better
Well laid out course however the fairways were muddy and the cut was too high, even for this time of year, hard to define fairway and the first cut! Greens ha e just been worked on so leave it a month.
Front 9 fairways are like a swamp, Greens decent, course layout and signs not very good.
If fairways were in better condition course could great. Back 9 is better.
Good value for money
Great course nice and varied I good condition
Will play it again
Although the weather forecast had predicted mainly dry conditions, it in fact rained for almost all of the round. Because of of the weather the course was completely empty, I saw no one else until I was playing the 18th and noticed someone on the 1st green. This is a really nice course, attractive layout and and fairly flat. The large amount of water hazards make some of the holes tricky.. Due to the low numbers at the club that day, the kitchen had been closed early but the guy behind the bar rustled me up an excellent sausage roll (it was huge, more of a sausage log!). The guy in the pro shop saw me coming off the course and we had a good chat.
I will return on a nice sunny day soon.
This is a good medium challenge course when weathers good.
There are a few patches on the fairways but not too bad after the summer we had. The greens were very good, true and consistant. The only thing to spoil them, as with many courses, is pitchmarks left by the more ignorant golfer.
All in all an enjoyable round and i will happily return there.
Perfect day out, course was perfect, although a few of the bunkers require more sand, but thats a minor point.
Would recommend to anyone in the area, the course has improved over the last 5 years and is now in great shape, many new exciting things happening within the club
I have played this course many times before and enjoyed it for its clever layout.But on this occasion it was waterlogged and the course should have been shut as much for its own protection so it can be played and enjoyed when the weather improves.
Regrettably played here on Saturday 27th January and came off after 11 holes due to the appalling condition of the course - IT SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN OPEN (if only to protect the course).
It was a total mud bath, trolleys getting stuck in mud, water logged fairways, no definition between fairways and rough, poor condition ladies tees and a rabbit scrape in one green.
After changing out of our muddy clothing we spoke to someone in the proshop whos response was "you are entitled to your opinion" - not exactly decent customer service considering I am a category one golfer who does have some idea on how a course should be presented.
We also spoke to a local in the car park when we were leaving and he said that the course is known for being incredibly wet during the winter and should probably be closed for at least 3 months each year.
We will certainly never return. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
The course was very wet and my electric trolley kept getting clogged up with muck.
I would be wary about playing in rainy conditions. However, it would be a fair challenge in more clement conditions, in very pleasant surroundings.
Shame the greens were average for this time of year..... slow an a bit bobbly. Tee boxes need a bit of love too. First time playing for a while here and newish owners stared well improving the course but seem to have taken a sabbatical.
Ideal course to practice accurate iron shots
Course was in good condition overall for time of year but the greens were slow and wet and hard to read for pace. Punishing course for high handicappers like me who had to keep on fairways to maintain par
Club house amenities were excellent and very clean and golf staff really friendly.
Definitely recommend this course to others.
