half links half parkland very interesting and enjoyable layout, played in a comp took 4 & 3/4 hours to play a 3 hour golf course, much too long , there is just no need for it.
Food is always decent, plenty of it and good value, also the members are really friendly and make you welcome
Good Course in excellent condition
The course is a mix of parkland and links holes with a number of blind shots. A second round is therefore a must (or the use of a buggy to identify lines and landing points).
There are some very tight fairways that favour left handers as they will not bring the out of bounds areas into play as easily . Lots of bunkers including pot style holes to make you think your way around the course and great views across the Wash to Norfolk. Limited outside space at the 19th for the post round relaxation but a well stocked Pro Shop as you enter the Car Park
Played on 10th July 2019
The weather was very good and the course quiet. I found that the practice facilities were a little lacking. One practice putting green at the entrance which was find. The practice area in the middle of two fairways was pointless as it was just for chipping, never did find any nets.
The course it’s self was a pleasure just the right amount of variety, short holes, long holes, some blind tee shots and some wide open and some where accuracy was key. The conditions was very good and pace of play could not fault as I was a single player.
Will definitely return and would recommend.
Great course even in windy conditions,pace of play was good. Pro shop was excellent and helpful. Would recommend this course to anybody
Nice challenge nice course
Booked a round for myself and had the course to myself enjoyed the challenge. Course was in nice condition greens were pretty good just couldn't buy a putt. The wind made it more challenging but a good test and a nice getaway. Would recommend it
Worth a knock..
Played this course for the first time today, very welcoming from the guy in the pro shop.
The course has some very good holes, every hole is different which is nice. Some holes are deceiving where the large target poles are for the greens. The greens are some 20-30 yards further on than the target poles. Fairway grass was a little long but still in decent condition. Greens were good.
Only let down for me being a single player was it did get a bit slow towards the last few holes as the group in front was waiting for the hole to clear before they feed off which was frustrating but that’s no fault of the course!!
I will defo come back and play here when in the area again.
A little disappointing
Was looking forward to this, but was somewhat disappointed. There were a number of winter mats in use which were like concrete, making it very difficult to hit irons off the deck, which was needed in the par 3s. A lot of considerable walks between holes. There was fertiliser all over the greens and a number of the fairways were being scarified. The putting green was closed due to recent damage and the short game area had been scarified meaning that was out of action too! There was a net though.
The course overall was quite dry so I’m not sure why the mats were in play. We got a hot deal meaning we paid £13 each. If we had paid more I think I would have asked for a refund!
Really enjoyable, good price, staff friendly, good condition, would def recommend
A most enjoyable game of golf for a very reasonable price. Friendly staff in the pro shop and in the hotel. Booking is so easy, facilities are good. What's not to like? I will certainly play there again and will use Teeofftimes again.
Yet again credit to the course staff for making this a worth while course to play, we have been coming to play this course yearly and it never fails, top marks to all who run and keep this great course going.kind regards William Miles.
great value golf course
excellent value, interesting golf course, links sections are a real test on high wind days, every hole is completely different to the previous one, greens are rapid, overall the course offers risk and reward on most of the holes, the weather can change the degree of difficulty from one day to the next, really enjoyable.
A great day by the sea.
An interesting course with some challenging holes. A fantastic ninth and eighteenth hole for a grandstand finish. A pint to round off the experience in a comfortable bar with good service and atmosphere. All in all a great day out. Well worth the trip from Leicestershire.
Even after all the recent rain course open on full greens which were in superb condition played as a three ball can’t wait to come back and play again soon.shot 87 handicap 14 not bad to say it was raining for the first 11 holes
Played this course 10 times and have never played to handicap. It is a great mix of inland and linx with massive diversity. Highly recommended.
good fun course
great condition as usual, course seems to be un affected by rain, always playable always dry. nice mix of parkland and links, the greens are well rolled and a good test of your skill, I could play up and down the links holes forever and ever, also the ro shop and green staff are very friendly, pub,s not bad either nice food, great value
Course in good nick thoroughly enjoyed our day there were six of us altogether everybody enjoyed it will be playing again in the near future
Unique mix of parkland and links holes
The weather was very wet and we only played nine holes. However the pro shop was very accommodating and willing to move tee times around to try to take advantage of the weather breaks.
This James Braid course is unusual in that on some holes you play down a parkland fairway and then play your approach shot onto a links green.
But when the wind blows off the sea ,some holes are very challenging to us mere mortals!
What a fantastic course! challenging in places but also forgiving if you're not so accurate off of the tee. Allow 5 hours and you'll be fine. The greens were perfect, simply the best i have played on. I'll definitely be coming back!
