Good for all standards

Some really good open fairways, but watch out for the water. Great stroke index one. Plenty of chances to open the shoulders, but watch out on some. Great for all levels.

A long knock today !!!

Again played the lakes . due to recent rain the course played very long & tough but again the fairways and recently tined greens were spot on .
The greens are fast---kept on putting 10ft past.
All staff as usual were good and met Glen --the ranger
whos got all the stories in the world .--great stuff !!
My caddy ( the wife ) again showed me up by knocking in 3 x 40 ft putts---only cost wine for lesson
I will be back to try again.
Recommend this course to all .

Challenging Lakes Layout

There are very few courses in NE England with this type of lakes based layout. Challenging and interesting and generally well maintained. Greens need some improvement and were the only negative aspect.

Tough bait very enjoyable course

First time playing ‘the lakes’ course today and was very impressed, the course conditions were fantastic and even in strong wind and very tricky holes was extremely enjoyable to play! Started off on the range which is great value and a very good bacon sandwich and coffee before tee off! Will be back very soon to play again!

Good Test of Golf

Played the lakes course for the first time in few years and was impressed in the improvement of the layout. Played tricky in stiff wind as some holes are really tight and need straight shots off the tee. Greens were in good fast condition too.
Well worth £20 green fee

Testing Course

Hadn't played in ages so found this quite a challenge. Lovely greens although rather a lot of Goose and swan poo. But very good value on the hot deal

Great Course, Great weather... great result...!

As ever, this course was in pristine condition, rivalling any Of the top class courses I’ve ever had the privilege of playing. The greens are so good it’s unbelievable that anyone has ever played on them..! Players seem only too happy to repair pitch marks (as they should...!) As it only makes sense to keep the already outstanding greens In as good a condition as possible.
I love this course, and it is slowly becoming my number 1 choice whenever we can avoid those nasty storms...
A brilliant round, very friendly and helpful staff, and a good pint in the 19th.
Wonderful...!

Nice course, well maintained

Nice course that was well maintained, fairways good, greens quick, a lot of wildlife on the course due to the amount of water, so lots of goose, swan poo, it didn’t interfere too much with the day, but i suppose it is to be expected and green keepers can’t really do anything about it,
Very nice day overall
