Tee off times got our tee time wrong but the Manor House sorted it all out for us. Great course with quick greens and good practice facilities and quality food and drink
We were quite encouraged when we spoke to the chap in the golf shop, he told us there were very few people on the course and a big gap between us and the groups ahead. We caught up with the first group after three holes and they kindly let us through. It went downhill from then on. We got held up behind a group playing as part of a corporate day. They wouldn’t let us through. We had a long wait on every hole from then on, particularly on the hole where they had their longest drive with a pro in attendance, eight of them driving !! After 20mins I asked them what the hold up was. This would have been an opportunity to let us through, but no. On we went. They all met up again on the 17th and played the last two holes as an eight. Given that only two of them appeared to be golfers it was a torturous experience. I complained when we got back to the club and whilst the chap was apologetic that was it. Never again, which is a shame. The moral here: check there aren’t any corporate groups ahead of you when you book a tee time.
Great course, helped by using Hole 19 App to understand course layout on each hole. Par 4s short but challenging nevertheless.
Very steep climbs up and out of the valley floor, not for the feint hearted. 2 or 3 amazing holes. None disappointed.
A brilliant golf course with superbly kept fairways and greens. You must take a buggy but if you can get a round and buggy for anything around the £40 or below, it is well worth it.
