Played this course multiple times with friends over the past year. Many changes have been made to this course for the better including the addition of a new testing par three on the back nine. Course Lay-out has been changed to aid player safety as driving range used to back onto the old second and third hole. New tee boxes have been added to the second and fifteenth, with a new tee box being added to the seventeenth. A challenging course due to its narrow fairways on a handful of holes, which requires some course management even for the most average of golfers. Even though there are seven or threes, each one offers a unique challenge to the golfer. Terrain of the golf course is quite flat compared to other courses in the nearby area. There are still areas to be worked on but speaking to the wiener of the course, these areas are being worked on in the near future. Definitely value for our money and we will be visiting again very soon.
This is a great course to start the enjoyment of golf. Front nine can play slowly depending on time of day. However every hole has a risk or reward element. Greens have improv over the last couple of years and the on going development is clear to see. Staff are the friendliest in the area.
Please Do not bother waste of money
If you go to this golf course you will be very disappointed We played recently and took almost 2 hours to play 6 holes When we went into the pro shop to request a refund we were informed that as it was a busy time they were not willing to offer any sort of refund !!! Very unpleasant staff Please do not bother very upsetting for myself and friends Far better courses in the area !! we would recommend dudsbury golf course bit more expensive but worth it
This course was very standard/predictable and extremely easy for someone of my ability (handicap 24, shot 16 over). The course itself was extremely dry with many of the holes bunched up together (back to back par 3s at one point). As a result it was a very slow round for a short course. What particularly annoyed me during my round were the green keepers who failed to turn off their engines and watched me play at least 3 holes Landscape, views and overall feel was average, greens were good.
Good course for walking
Great flat course for walking which is flat. Still some challenging holes which test all abilities!
Decent little track
We often play here as a second round of the weekend as it's short and flat. Front 9 can make you feel pretty good about your game but the back can bite a little. I'd suggest getting out there early doors as it can get busy with slightly less than proficient golfers past 9am and it's a tad pricey for what it is, later in the day. Greens could do with being a touch more receptive but pretty flat. Clubhouse one of the best around, good food, lovely staff and a really nice set up on a sunny day. If you're a single figure golfer then I doubt it's for you but all in all its a lovely little course.
Nice little club tucked away in the forest
Lovely little course , good driving range and restaurant facility
Excellent short course if you want a quick round, seems to be improving all the time.
Course in poor condition
Bearing in mind that the green feed were £18 each this very poor value for money!
The course was generally in a poor condition & the greens were shocking!
They were very bumpy having just been spiked & some were bare in places
I would not recommend this course & will not play there again!
Enjoyable and Relaxed Day Out
Considering the recent weather the course was surprisingly dry and the greens were good. This is not a course for the serious competitive golfer but more for beginners, intermediates and seniors. I played with my father in law and he really enjoyed it as there was no pressure on him and he found the course enjoyable for his standard.
The welcome was very friendly and it had a very well stocked shop. We really enjoyed the back nine and the finishing hole really is a test!
Will definitely be back in the spring for another go.
