Not much they can do about the weather, hasn't rained in 6 weeks. Ball is rolling a long distance. Greens are pretty hard. A fair number of tight fairways on the course. Quite a few drives and short irons (playing whites). Could probably cut a few trees down on the short par four (280 yard, hole five I think). Overall interesting course.

Despite heavy rain the previous day the course is quick drying and conditions were excellent underfoot. The course is easy walking and relatively short and for around a tenner represents excellent value for money; in particular over the autumn/winter months when other courses in the area are having to resort to temporary greens and fairway mats. A public footpath runs through the course and dog walkers can be a bit of a nuisance, but the fairways and greens especially are kept in really good nick. Comfortable bar area and welcoming pro staff.

Relatively short, easy walking course. Nice variety of holes including one short and three longish par 3s. Fairways in good shape and well-maintained greens. A public footpath crosses the course and provides for significant footfall at certain times of the day. The beauty is that this is an all year round course that drains extremely well and is dry underfoot; also providing excellent value for money at around £10 per player.

Played on probably the wettest day of the year, but the course stood up well.

Good fairways and greens throughout. A very enjoyable course to play.

Points to note.

Ensure you go to the correct tee on the 17th.

Although it didn't impact upon us, makes sure you have personal liability insurance as 3 holes run parallel with one of the busiest roads in the area.
