Confusing

This course did not have any ‘dramatic’ scenery. It’s good because it’s just half hour from central london but it’s not to die for or a must see one. It did the job though. So to be fair I may go again but I’m not dyeing to go back. The indications to the holes were really poor! Couldn’t find my way around it. Really really few signs and the ones available were confusing ones!

Good course and an excellent afternoon was passed

This is without doubt a very good course. It has a lovely clubhouse and refreshed pro shop. I found the members friendly and staff helpful. The course is challenging, yet fair with some interesting holes and a good, varied selection of challenges. The greens are especially good.

Trickier than it looks

First time playing the course and I found there were several obstacles to make most of the holes more challenging than they might seem initially. Bunkers strategically placed, some hedges or tree lines that punished an errant drive and relatively fast, undulating greens that challenged the putting.
Now that I know I need to play the course again.

Fast and friendly

The heatwave has taken its toll on some of the fairways and aprons but greens were in great nick. Fast and true. And playing it was fast work with little traffic in front. Great clubhouse for a drink after too . Highly recommended.

Pleasant day ***

Played this course for the first time today. Was impressed with the condition of the course. Greens were very true and beautifully cut. Because of the dry summer the fairways were burnt however there was still grass growing in places so no negatives. I would recommend the course to anyone who likes a nice gentle not too testing round. Speed of play was good our 2-ball was completed in 3hrs 15 mins. Would certainly play here again. One of the best inner city courses I have come across.

Great greens, not great layout

Tees and greens too close together on virtually every hole. Frequently waiting for someone to putt out or tee off whilst playing another hole. Greens are excellent but not sufficient to compensate for the layout. Wanted to finish off with a couple of drinks as usual, especially after a hot day but bar staff were not interested in serving so we left. Lost custom for the club and we will not be rushing back. The welcome from the Pro was good though.

Did not play at all

At first the man in the pro shop sold me a tee time. Twenty minutes later he told me that I can't use my trolley and my trousers are not good enough for their caurse and I can't go on. I understand the club rules are very strict despite mud and caurse conditions. But he could not sell me the teetime and could tell me that before take money.
