Lovely looking course but a bit hilly and up and down. Course was a bit waterlogged and would be much better when dry. Greens quite small and some kept footprints after you walked on them. Will try again in the summer when I think it will come into it's own
Good parkland course
A good golf course played in good conditions. We could take our time as we had no other golfers around us until the last couple of holes. Some of the greens were a bit patchy and had unrepaired pitch marks but course in good condition other than that.
Pretty parkland course. Not particularly long but fairly tight in places. Very sheltered from the weather, worth a visit.
An enjoyable challenge
A very good course and a great layout. Seemed like there were very few straight holes with bunkers to catch the unwary. Course and greens in good condition, bearing the weeks of hot dry weather we've had. Look forward to playing it again.
Almost empty, lovely setting & course well maintained - highly recommended
Whilst not the longest course this is the certainly the most pleasing to the eye.
The dreadful weather meant that some of the greens were becoming waterlogged which spoiled a bit of the enjoyment on the day, but all agreed it was well worth another visit!
Awful greens and poor drainage
Played at this course on 10/04/15. It was a 9 hole course some years ago and the 9 hole extension is not the best having to utilise out of bounds markers in the meddle of the course as they squeezed the holes into too small a space.
The greens were atrocious. There were numerous bare patches including where previous holes had been cut, and the grass was so long it was clearly seeding. They can't blame the weather as it had been extremely good. At one point I considered using a 5 iron as a putter when putting some distance from the hole as the greens were so slow.
The golf club is clearly struggling, especially since the new Boringdon Golf Club opened its doors.
I certainly will not play here again unless the golf society unfortunately books in for next year.
