Where's the etiquette?

On the second hole, I had to wait whilst two members sharing one buggy (and sharing clubs)drove off. They held me up on every hole until the 9th, often disappearing into the woods to look for lost balls, and stayed on every green to mark their cards. It was torturous. At one stage, I thought they'd given up as there was no sign of them, and as I played my shot there was a shout from the woods asking me what I thought I was doing, as they hadn't called me through!
Thank goodness, they finished after 9 holes, but two holes later I got held up by a threeball for the rest of the round. I was joined eventually by a couple of members who said that the three in front were committee members - and that the etiquette in the club in general was very poor. I couldn't agree more! Shame, as it's a not a bad little course, but I won't be going back there.

Good value golf

A parkland course just on the edge of town, so adjacent to some houses and industrial estate. Not a long course but quite a walk to the next tee on a few holes. A few really challenging holes and most provide something to think about. Course in reasonable condition but can be boggy in parts, especially after heavy rain.

Average course in good condition

This course is quite decent and was found in good condition after a number of days of heavy rain. For the price we paid we would be happy to return in the future.

You get what you pay for

First impression of course was a bin overflowing with rubbish.
Tees in terrible condition. Bare and too many divot holes.
Fringes of greens being cut with a gang mower leaving clods of grass on the edge and overflowing onto greens.
Generally greens quite good. Fairways and rough ok

First Nine Review

Enjoyable front nine but a little confusion on whee to go from 3rd green to 4th. One green was temporary (not sure why).
Overall an enjoyable course.

Washout

We played Forest of Dean today played it a few times before so traveled the 40 miles from the valleys of South Wales started playing before the rain came in but by the 8th hole The greens were waterlogged and unplayable when we came off we told the pro in the shop that we came off early and he said he would sort out a free round on our return other than that the course looked in good condition and can’t wait for our return visit

Friendly staff
Ample refreshments with well filled baguettes

Nice course with some tricky greens and some testing holes on a pleasant parkland course

The rough had been well cut back since last playing here which made it more forgiving for drives a bit wayward.

Good course

Had a good afternoon, a bit slow due to busy ahead, but a fair challenge, so greens had been damaged by vandals, but generally very nice condition. 10th hole a bit odd, needs a few trees lopping I think!

Mike Leigh

booked last minute with golf now, arrived half an hour late but they were very accommodating even though they were busy. A lovely sunny day and course was in very good condition. Not played for a while so challenging enough for me. I enjoyed and would like to play the again.

Good open fairways for novices

Really enjoyed the round. Open fairways helped us, as two relative beginners.
Young lad in the pro shop was very helpful.
We were rushed a little by Local members following us, but it meant we finished in just over 3hrs.
Food, drink and service in the clubhouse was great after too.
Plenty using buggies but we chose to get the walk in.
Would highly recommend for a visit and round

ANOTHER FANTASTIC round of golf

Not the first time on this course. I find myself coming back to this course over & over. Course was in great condition & was unaffected by the rain. The greens still played quick. I love this course, it’s nice & open & quite forgiving. The only thing that ruined it & NO FAULT OF THE CLUB was the selfish 4 ball that wouldn’t let anybody play through right from the second hole.

I love this course. You won’t be disappointed after a day out here. Well worth the fees!!!!!!!!!!!!!
