Expectations Met

We had a great round. The course was in excellent condition - especially the greens which were fast and true. The fairways were beautifully prepared. A real test of golf.

Poor staff

Asked if we could play later than our time as we arrived just in time for our time. Man in pro shop said not for just over an hour as course busy. We started on our time , 1.45 and after 2 holes could see that there was no one behind us at all. It was raining at this point so waited the rain out a little on the 3rd tee whereby the marshal appeared and after a frosty hello immediately told us that we couldn't wait under the trees forever as there were people behind us! Clearly the pro shop and starter had no idea what on earth was happening as we only saw people on the 3rd as we were going to the 7th tee. Very poor service for a £55 per person green fee. Again, for the money the course wasn't great. Rough was too long with a lot of freshly mown grass on top of it and a lot of poor lies around the greens, particularly on the front 9. On the plus side the tees, fairways and greens were excellent.

Wet weather

Wounderful

Played the Arden course for my Dad's 70th and what a treat this was!

We had to wait for a while as we unfortunately the rain came down on us heavily whilst we were on the 3rd, it did waterlog the course, and the greens did end up with massive streams of water especially on the 3rd/6th green complex.

However by the time the rain cleared and got into the back 9 we were treated to a wonderful layout, the greens kept beautiful and true and still quick even with all the rain.

Overall its a wonderful golf course with some brilliant holes, kept in beautiful condition, well worth the it even though we were drenched!

But I will be back!

Excellent weather

great course........... but i would not like to be a member here

Play every year here for the past 5 or 6 years in a corporate event. Really nice course, always in very good condition, some super holes and my favourite 18th / closing hole anywhere ( 190 yrd par 3 with a carry of 160 yrds over water, always plenty of people watching the green from the spike bar) 9th is also a really great hole. For a member the biggest problem must be getting on to play a round, course was full all day with either corporate or society groups.
