Fist time playing the course. Impressed with the layout and condition. Some very nice holes and great value for money as i only paid £13 for 18 holes. The only down side was a group of local youths who were continuously riding a scooter around the course. It was a real shame. Will play there again but if the

Kids on mopeds driving round stealing flags and tearing up greens. Quite threatening, dont bother. Paid £10 to play so guess you can accept that.

Course in great condition, credit to the Greenkeepers and Staff. Worth playing if you haven't before as some tricky holes.

Tees were ridiculous , most of them were like teeing off a side hill lie , most of the greens were second rate , if they were not temps , which were terrible , overall 25 pound a round not worth half of that

It was nice for a public course but unfortunately there's been some malicious activity on some of the holes (especially hole 6 fairway) so that was disappointing. When the winter tees were used they were in good condition compared to other courses but had a couple of temporary greens. Will play again in the spring time.

I play here quite regularly. For the time of year the course is in really condition. It's just the other golfers that are a problem.

Today a 3 ball in front of us took an eternity to play and didn't allow us to play through. The group behind us, wearing jeans and tracksuits, obviously lost patience and started hitting shots into us as we were taking our shots. It was all a bit ridiculous.
