Four hours to play 11 holes...

Lovely course. HOWEVER, by far and away the WORST pace of play I have ever experienced. Who in their right mind would decide to plant two societies of 20+ golfers next to each other, at 7 minute tee time intervals. The course was great, but the front nine took well over three hours and we couldn’t take any more after 11 so gave up. Won’t be visiting again in a hurry, but then having said that, nothing was done in a hurry yesterday. I’m a 10 handicapper and by no means Henrik Stenson, but I could’ve crawled my way around faster than the group(s!!!) in front of us.

Decent Course

Played a two ball, got stuck behind a winter league foursomes but they were very friendly. Very nice course, just the one temp green. Held up well considering the weather we have had. Planning to return in a few weeks as a fourball.

Don’t play in the winter

Have played the course many times and this was to be the last until spring next year. Unfortunately the heavy rain on the Tuesday had affected the course in many places and as trolleys had not been banned there was a lot of damage from them. Greens were very slow and needed a cut. Pro shop and clubhouse staff very friendly. Price was very cheap, so can’t complain of the value. Would recommend giving it a miss until spring but really like the course regardless of the negative comments

Good course

This course is great value for the price. Varied holes offer plenty of challenge which make it fun to play. I enjoy playing here. The only thing that could make this course better is the quality of staff - they are frequently not overly polite or easily findable.

Never again

I really don't like leaving negative feedback but feel I need to on this occasion. Round was cheap and pro was helpful and friendly. Didn't think it'd be too busy on a Wednesday afternoon. How wrong I was! I think the reason for all the waiting was the fact that the grass was extremely long everywhere. If you were just off the greens then you had a job to find your ball. We were constantly held up and after the 12th we decided enough was enough. Have played here before, although not in the last few years. Greens were dead, will not be back, sorry.

Good Fun, Forgiving Set Up

Really enjoyed playing this course, not particularly long and you are not punished harshly for tee shots landing off the fairway. Surprised by the pace of the greens initially, first couple of holes in particular played quick for us but once we adapted they played nicely.

Over booked

Arrived at the 1st tee 20 minutes before our booking time only to find 2 societies in front of us. There were 7 fourballs fortunately 3 of the fourballs went to the 10th tee. Once we got started we were constantly waiting for the societies in front of us. So our 3 and a half hour round turned into a 5 hour round. The course itself was well presented as always but I think they need to look at their booking system.
