Course was in lovely condition. Greens were a tad slow but that was down to re seeding
Desperately needs a marshall!
Have played this course on three seperate occasions, every single time I have had an issue with slow play.
In my opinion if the club gets lots of bookings for 3/4 balls of elderly players then maybe it would be best to have a course marshall and remind the members that slow play is not acceptable, and to be more aware about letting a person playing on their own to play through.
Every time I have played here I have been caught up behind group after group of slow playing 4 balls that refuse to let me play through and can not deny they knew of my presence. On this visit i was became very annoyed by the eighth hole, I was on the green of the 7th (15 yards from the tee of the 8th hole) when the 4 ball of ladies infront of me decided not to wait for me to finish up and play through but to tee off instead. So after waiting a very long time for them to get out of reach I play on, there I am waiting 195 yards from the green when they finally finish the hole, i had enough time to finish the hole (195 yards to go) and then play the 18th instead of the 9th before the 4ball of ladies had reached their tee shots. I cant help but feel the club doesnt do enough to speed up play/ remind members to let younger faster smaller groups play through.
If the club had a marshall this would probably be avoided, or even if they told me to tee off from the 10th as there seamed to be no-one on the back 9 at the time.
Another problem with the course is the layout, with lots of dog legs on the course and the tee to the next hole always being in line with your shot youre always waiting to take your shot as there are people in the way, also on more than one occasion you end up playing accross another hole so there are many factors that slow down play.
Course was in genral good nick, has some nice holes and views which is a shame because speed of play is letting this club down big time. Payed £21 so price for the condition of the course is good value. But having had the same problem the three times i have played here and nothing has been done about it i wouldnt reccomend this course and i wont be returning.
