Clubhouse under construction! Slow play!

Couldn’t play the 1st hole due to the building work going on. The course itself is well maintained but the tee times are not really adhered to. Found myself stuck behind two older players who didn’t offer for me to play through and then I had a party of 3 waiting behind me as soon as the 3rd tee. When there should be at least 5 minutes between tee times. Felt slow the whole way round. Hadn’t played this course in a year and will not be playing it anytime soon. Not impressed

Surprised the course was so good

Really impressed with the course .

anyone that plays here often enough knows this is a tough course when it rains as its very boggy in places.

massively improved the other side the fairways could do with a better cut but im sure that will come in next week.

no drinks or food as its all being refurbished .

me and my son really enjoyed our round .

First Time Playing

the course was in good condition for this time of year. The greens were also in good condition. Major redevelopments going on at the moment on the club house etc so nothing do after the round has finished. My only criticism is the signage for each hole. Sometimes on certain holes you don't know were to go for the next hole so signage definitely needs to be improved

Cheap and cheerful

First time at course, was in decent condition, no major obstacles but plenty of bunkers to maneuver. Only real downside was no clubhouse or even any drinks in the fridge in the temporary office.

Good Value Course

This is a well established municipal course, with some tight tree lined fairways, some dogleg holes with well placed bunkers & ditches but also some shorter easier holes so suits all handicaps.
Course currently in good nick especially fairways & greens.
Our round 4.5 hours, mainly due to relaxed policy on golfers of all abilities,& golf experience, which impacts on speed of play.
Be aware some regulars only play the short loop ie miss hole 5-11, which can cause delays on hole12.
.There is no clubhouse/ bar facilities, but local pub.is ok.

Improving course

Played here many times over the years as its my closest course and it's getting better each year. Some challenging holes, fairways are perfect, greens very good and rough quite forgiving.

Improving

Last played here about two years ago. The conditions of the course have improved. The fairways and the layout are better. Only downside are the greens are a little scuffed up but overall improving.

Good course but the semi-rough is very penal

Enjoyed this course again though it suffers from some areas of very soft and boggy ground. The rough just off some of the fairways I think has been left fairly thick to combat this but it causes some penal losses of only slightly misdirected balls. On a few occasions we found a number of balls in this semi-rough though not our own. Enjoyed the challenge though!

Greed destroys courses

How on earth this course wasn’t closed today is a travesty, there is no point keeping unplayable courses open just to make a few quid. Turned up today to be told only 9 holes open and it’s boggy out there...err why is it open then
9 holes may have been open, but nothing short of wellies and a pair of water wings would suffice. Shame as the course is normally good in the summer, but with insane decisions to keep the course open on day like today will only destroy it and it’s failing reputation. Balls landing on centre of fareway and being lost due to plugging are not conditions to keep a course open......terrible decision to keep open and unfair to any paying patrons.....won’t be going back any time soon
