Nice friendly club with enjoyable course

Lovely experience. Warm and helpful welcome from members and professional. Reduced catering due to Covid but had a hot pie and coffee before play. Course was well laid out, with wide fairways and not much trouble. Greens were slow but nice. A nice feature was the New Forest ponies wandering sround the course. Overall a really nice round on a pretty, shortish and manageable course. Great value for money.

Any slower it would stop

Very slow play with people who have no idea how to play. It's about time clubs stopped taking the money and making sure people have a basic Understanding and able to hit a ball more than 30 yards. 38 pounds for 3 hours to get 9 holes never again.

Great value

Average layout but a great value green fee.
It is always a pleasant walk in a lovely setting even if you're not playing well.
The greens putt well and are a reasonable speed.
The course condition is excellent seeing that this is common land.

Great location

Lovely course would play again .
They aren’t allowed to put signage up so the tee boxes and flags are confusing even with the printout the gave us we shot at the wrong green .

Also the tees weren’t level which I feel is not great . Grade them back and level them off !

A lovely course, quirky, friendly and helpful staff

I hadn't played the course before, but was impressed with the friendly welcome by the pro staff, explaining the course layout etc and a small course map. Alll necessary Covid precautions were in place.
The course is quite quirky with the ponies and cattle wandering around, but there wasn't any real detrimental affect to the course as it was pretty firm. It was a lovely walk, the greens ran pretty true and although it was a little slow in places, the weather was quite hot and it was nice scenery.
I would definitely revisit the course, also the bar prices were very reasonable, Dibden please take note.

Friendly club, great value for money with the greens in good nick.

Although the course is on the relative short side, this is more than made up for by the par 69. Some tough par 3s make it a fair challenge although fairways are mainly on the generous side. Pace of play was excellent, 3.5 hrs for a 3 ball which included a couple of short breaks to don waterproofs due to a couple of heavy showers.
Greens were in excellent condition and consistent throughout. A very enjoyable round for £22 per person - great value!

Have to play this course

First off, the staff were fantastic. Missed out tee off time due to some horrendous traffic. Couldn't have been anymore accommodating and Michael sorted us a new tee of time. Amenities were basic, but didn't see much of this due to covid.

The course itself is interesting, beginning with a herd of cattle crossing the first fairway at tee off time. Plenty of ponies on the course too. The course is fairly short and not too difficult, however we played on one of the hottest days of the year and the fairways were like concrete in places. The greens however were in excellent condition.

It was an enjoyable round (if a little too hot) only criticism would be the lack of signage, finding your next tee could be a challenge on a few holes (even with a course map)

All in all a decent little course and good value, would definitely play here again.

Easy paced round

The course is in good condition at this time of year.
Decent run on the fairways, tees are pretty tidy and the greens have a decent roll on them.
Can’t fault the value for money.

Beautiful course but the fairways might as well be concrete

We enjoyed our round, the course is unique and the greens are well kept, but the fairways were so hard it was effectively like striking the ball off concrete.

Great price & nice location

Really enjoyed the round, the lady in the shop was very friendly and helpful, strange playing a course with wild ponies walking around but not a problem even with one sleeping in the fairway bunker, a gem of a course with nice greens
