WELLIES WITH SPIKES REQUIRED

Played a 3 ball in very wet conditions, on arrival got changed in the car as a new clubhouse is being built, informed staff we were there, they are very helpful and explained parts of the course are in bad condition due to ongoing drainage work. Started the game and found fairway grass quite long, probably due to the weather, most bunkers were full of water, fallen leaves everywhere, even on greens, hate this time of year were the trees shed everything. Greens very wet and held water so made putting very difficult. Parts of the course so wet you sank while lining up to take a shot. It`s good to see that it`s obvious that major work is going on around the course so when the better weather comes back the course will be better placed to withstand the poor weather this time next year. Will continue to use this course as they are trying to improve it, it`s in a good location, it has some challenging holes and the staff are very helpful and pleasant.

Ok for a last minute round

Quick round as not many players out, fairways a bit overgrown, bunkers not maintained, greens ok. No clubhouse/locker room so got changed in car. Cheap price made things a bit better.

Enjoyable Course

Staff very friendly on arrival, course in very good condition, easy enough for us average players but narrow at times to challenge the better players, downside is no clubhouse at the moment but as soon as you arrive you can see the building work going on, will defo continue to use the fantastic course.

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 .

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.
