Considering the recent bad weather the course has held up pretty well. Some course maintenance work has been carried out and some is still ongoing but does not affect anything too much. For the time of year and VFM well worth playing. Must mention the excellent clubhouse. Great friendly staff and the food and drinks were unbelievably great value.

Great Course

Friendly staff and good clubhouse. The course itself is very testing so dont expect to play to handicap first time round. Great individual holes with lots of interesting obsticles to get around, would love to play again.

Well worth a visit

Really enjoyed our round here, very lucky with the weather. The course is challenging with some very interesting par 3's. If you are in this area, I would definitely suggest playing here.

Baffled by course maintenance

Pace was fairly average however as a single ball I walked off after 9 holes, kept getting distracted by grounds staff cutting across fairways and on greens I was just playing up to. On the 8th I was 3ft off the green waiting to chip on and the grass cutter decided to cut the green that I was about to play onto, even removing the flag to cut that area and sat revving the grass cutter when I eventually got to play my shot. Very disappointed

Amazing golf course And a must play !

I normally walk a golf course but I have chosen to hire a buggy, what treat ! The course was in great condition with superb greens. A gentle start with a short par 4 is easy enough but possible the only hole where this is true. A parkland course of the highest calibre with many challenges requiring your fullest attention - what a joy to play this magnificent course and I would recommend to play this course for sure.

Back to its best

Not played here since last year, course playing as good as I’ve ever played, firm running fairways and greens in great nick. Chipping area & surrounds have improved since last visit, great to see a lovely course as it should be presented, well done to all involved.
