Neat and tidy 9 holes

2 of us played the course for the 1st time last Sunday, to be fair the course is well kept, reasonably challenging and we got great value for money.

I would definitely recommend it to anyone sure its only 9 holes but you could play the 18 and their are some different tee's to do that.

Overall I'd personally give it a thumbs up and will 100% play the course in the future.

The course was in great condition

First time I played here and didn’t realise it was a 9 hole course. But I really enjoyed it! It’s very hilly and not the longest when playing off winter tees but once it’s at full playing conditions it’s a test for anyone

Beautiful Views

The course is high up to its surrounding location, which creates excellent views, fro some of the fairways, when the wind blows the course it much more difficult, the layout has nice holes, would recommend to any level, it is not a very difficult course, but it is also not easy when playing into the wind

Pleasantly surprised

We played on a Sunday afternoon and the course wasn't busy.
Despite the lack of rain the course was in excellent condition greens were well kept and
fast.
As it is only an 11 hole course some holes are played twice from different tee positions
I was really pleased with the course and experience and will highly recommend the course

Disappointing

The highlight of the course is the greens which are really well kept (spoilt on the day as some greens were soaking wet). The club house was closed on the day we went and no shop on site so nobody about to welcome you and let you know about the course. Club house and 18th next to each other, but the rest of the course is on the other side of the motorway. There's only 11 greens so some shared tees and greens so gets a bit congested at times. Sadly won't be revisiting

Pleasant round

Effectively this is an 11 hole course, 8 of which you play twice albeit from slightly different tee boxes. Deapite this, it was in good condition and it's certainly not your typical "9 holes". Pretty forgiving from the tee with wide fairways and little trouble, but nice turf, lovely views and some good holes. Greens good although they looked as though they'd been dyed for a greener look which was slightly odd. If it was busy it'd be tough given only 11 holes to spread the players over. Overall, I'd play again for a leisurely round, especially given the green fee of less than a fiver!

Wet weather

A good but challenging course

The terrain makes this course challenging being set on the hills of Blackburn. Some of the shorter holes are very tricky as they are protected by bunkers. A very pleasant round.

Pleasantly Surprised

Never been to this course, thought a 9 hole course, would be small and less challenging, with little options for the driver. This was a practise round for me. Well was very impressed and surprised, great views, challenging holes, very difficult in wet windy conditions. Have to say did not hit many greens, but enjoyed, very well looked after course, greens looked in excellent condition. I enjoyed my 18 holes.
