Arrived to find out that they were playing preferred greens due to an salt water issue they had with the main greens. Was informed I should have received a pop up box online when booking informing me of this. Sadly this was not the case and travelled 45 miles to then be told.this. I think the course green fee should have been reduced to reflect this but because I had already paid online this would have not been possible. Apart from this the fairways on the back nine where not that great either. Sadly a fairly disappointing round with a large number of the holes shortened in length due to the issues taking away the overall experience and reduced the competitive enjoyment.
Needs a complete refurbishment
After playing this course a few times before it’s sad to see the course has deteriorated.
They do have a ongoing problem with greens due to salt contamination hence all 18 greens are temporary.
The tee boxes are in an appalling state and the fairways are not maintained to a good standard.
We paid £20 each for a round and too be fair it’s not even worth a tenner.
Such a shame as the course layout is challenging, nice clubhouse but it’s evident to see no money has been spent on the maintenance to maintain a decent course.
Worst course I’ve ever played
Worst course I’ve ever played, 17 out of the 19 greens were being repaired but yet they had the audacity to charge £20 per person, which is just laughable. I could have gone out with a spade and a flag and played down my local park it was that bad. No mention of the greens being out of action by the staff either.... just willingly welcoming us mugs who turned up after paying £20 to play on that joke of a course.
See photos attached of the state of the greens that were somehow worthy of the price...
Don't waste your money
Terrible conditions. No improvement in the course for years cant even hit off a even tee. Full of mud. No bunkers in play as there seems to be a worldwide sand shortage. All temp greens.
Can honestly say don't waste your money even if this review is 6 months plus old as it won't get any better that i can assure you. At the prices that are being charged be better to play crazy golf
Greens in very bad condition
Wish we never played on coarse in such bad condition. Payed a lot of money for four ball, greens had been ruined by being watered with salt water. Won't reccemend to play here at this moment in time.
Arriving at the course having played there before expecting and good day,
Went into the shop to hire a trolly all very good,
Tee of from the 10th hole rabbit holes all in fairway, not the odd 1 but loads, when we arrived at the green it was not even green, brown no grass at all, this continued for the whole course,
When we finished we went back to the shop and asked why we had not been informed of the conditions of the greens as we would not of played, or given us the option, to lay £25 for the state of the course was dreadful, all we were told was to phone a number to have a conversation poor service, apparently salt water got in the system to cause this situation but we should of been informed before tee off, people planning on going save your money & look elsewhere
Firstly the greens are in poor condition but I haven’t marked down my rating for this as this was stated before I paid..You had to be aggressive with your putting.
I arrived late went to the pro shop explained to the lady behind the counter.and It wasn’t a problem I had to wait only 20 minutes .While waiting had a coffee in the club house and was treated equally as well.
The course layout was very good the short drivable par 4’s 10th,13th and 15th are very well protected. The risk and reward holes I found was the 3rd and 11th both par 5’s .
The fairways are burnt and hard if you don’t like this don’t play in the summer. leave your driver in the bag and use irons and play golf.All the greens I hit held.
The reason I marked the course down was because of the bunkers they were all GUR and wasn’t notified before play. I’m coming back in the Winter to play this course as I think this will be a good challenge.
Greens ,fairway, tee box
The whole course could be fantastic with abit of TLC
At the moment greens unplayable tee box is solid and fairway doesn’t really be a fairway due to plants and being so hard surface to play on
Serious work needed.
Won't be returning, unless the whole course is improved. Greens are so bad, would be easier putting on the temporary greens. There is hardly any grass on them, and the rest is just mud. Tee boxes are basically just patches of rough. Absolute daylight robbery charging people £20/25.
Course should be closed, subject to repair!
My local common has a better playing surface than this course. I must have lost 3 balls down rabbit holes on the fairway. Greens are the worst I’ve seen. Patchy, no grass, impossible to play. Course should be closed until some serious repair is carried out. Can I have a refund?
Should be closed
The problems they have had with the irrigation have caused the greens to be the worst Iv ever played. They should be closing until they can refurbish. Course layout is really good. Has a lot of potential but needs some money to put into maintenance to bring it Upto standard
Course needs work
I would not recommend this course in its current state. A severe lack of grass on the greens, no definition between fairways and rough as all the grass was dead, rabbit holes across the whole course, bunkers all GUR.
Course layout is good with some great holes, but really let down by the course condition.
this course is in terrible condition the fairways are non existent the greens are poor working down here so played here instead of going to range about all its good for
Needs improvement, but enjoyable nonetheless
The course is challenging and varied, with lots of elevated greens and trees placed in awkward locations. Golfers are rightly punished for wayward tee-shots, with thick rough and deep bushes waiting to gobble up any loose drives.
The undulating fairways and landscape in general make for pleasant surroundings.
Unfortunately, the course itself is in serious need of some TLC. The greens were completely dead, they were brown with very little grass left on them whatsoever. It was extremely difficult to read putts and judge pace as a result.
Every single bunker on the course was completely overgrown with weeds and therefore out of action. This was a shame - although some might disagree, having bunkers scattered around your target is part of the enjoyment. It would have been nice to have been warned of this prior to paying £20 each to go round.
We had slightly strange experience towards the end of our round; a group of 3 people in a car had made their way onto the course... they were shooting some sort of target/object with a rifle. Not exactly ideal preparation for your next shot, hearing a gunshot go off just 100 or so yards away.
The golf shop staff member was very friendly and helpful, the clubhouse is very welcoming. I will visit again and hope that improvements will have been made to bring it up to its potential.
