Poor.

I first played the course in august 2014 just after it had opened. I had hoped that it had matured in the last two and a half years and the course had improved dramatically, sadly I was mistaken.

Don't get me wrong, the course has holes which are okay but these are few and far between. The opening hole, the 11th, 12th, 13th and 17th all look visually pleasing and have some definition to them. The 17th the hardest and most visually arresting.

As for the rest of the course, it has been built on it has few trees and the majority of the holes play extremely long (and as the course is open to the elements the wind will make it longer) and cannot be reached by the average player, some of the holes have a massive elevation change which could pose problems for those players choosing to walk or pushing a trolley.

My big complaint was the greens, they looked great, no patches from the dreaded fusarium. However, they were so slow as to be un-puttable, two and three-foot putts The puts jumped and bobbled and gave you no chance of holeing them.

The clubhouse and practice facilities are some of the best I have seen anywhere. Driving range, chipping and putting areas as well as a very large bar and lounge. Locker and changing facilities are luxurious and not what I have found elsewhere.

Sadly the course is let down by its design, length and greens. It's not worth £55 a round nowhere near if you want to play ramside play the older Cathedral Course for the same price.

I won't be playing this course anytime soon.
