Like pulling teeth

4 hours to play 13 holes ended up walking off, No one checking people teeing off we teed off at our time men’s to have 15 minutes till next group soon as we took our 2nd shot players teeing off, after 8 holes we were counting 4 groups on a hole 2 on the tee one on the green and one the fairway, four balls ahead of us who were clearly a lower standard not letting anyone through a waste of 30 quid won’t be going there again

Perfect weather
Used cart

Fairways sodden and greens severely pitch-marked

I played here twice over two days. The first day was sunny with no wind; the second was overcast with occasional light showers.
But it was the condition of the course that was poor. I only saw one ground staff on each day, and perhaps that's the reason. No only were the fairways sodden and the greens severely pitch-marked, there were empty beer bottles and cans all littering several tee areas, and many bunkers were overgrown and clearly unmaintained.
Why don't golf clubs retain litter bins? What (covid-19) risk is there - players simply throw away their litter and grounds staff removed the litter bags with gloved hands? Rant over.

Nice course still improving after covid lockdown

Super layout with a whole range of hole shapes hazards and challenges. Lots of different teeing grounds and flag positions make you think especially on shorter holes. Work still to be done on greens which were bobbly and a bit long. A round took 4hrs for our 4 ball but we were behind a society.

6 holes in 2 hours

Very very slow. Title suggests, 6 holes in 2 hours. No one out marshalling it. Left on the 7th tee due to a queue of 3 groups.

Overbooked

Played this course today for the second time. The staff were fine although when I arrived I was told I had to play in a 3 because of the allocation.
The tees were too congested and the pace of play was poor, you could here other golfers venting frustration on the tee boxes because the pace was so slow. I was playing behind a group of 4 and they didn’t let me pass. The greens were soft and really slow/boggy (recent rain). I had a better round last winter than today.

Too wet

This course should have been closed after all the rain as it was nearly unplayable due to boggy conditions, but as we had prepaid our time we had to play or lose out. Easily the worst condition course I have played this year which is a pity as I think in better weather would have been ok.

Washout

Extremely wet, it was a dry day yet the course was a washout. It clearly doesn’t drain well. Spoke to some members On the course who said it shouldn’t be open. The layout was good, although some questionable holes ie a par 4 playing at 190 yards. I however have no doubt on a dry day the course would be good.
Pro shop was well stocked but lacked basics such as ball markers.

Greed

Good course always in great condition. Play here a lot . only downside is its always overbooked leading to slow play , too keen to grab the money by overlooking tee slots (seemingly anyway) sending groups out every 10 min is greedy
