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.

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.
