Played this course many times and have enjoyed it every time. The course layout means you are back at the car park at the end of the ninth so if you only want nine holes it’s perfect the back 9 start with two par fives and are a challenge half way round. The par threes are a. Perfect combination of challenge and fun I’d definitely reconnect to anyone.
Very friendly staff and beautiful setting
Had a lesson with the on site coach before going on to play a round. Very friendly, patient and helpful coach. Boosted confidence and refined our limited skills sufficiently to go out on the coarse.
Luckily it was quiet so although we are slow we weren’t holding anyone up.
Very impressed with the coarse, would recommend and will certainly return.
Me and a friend played the course on Sunday. The course was in very poor condition compared to how well it’s usually kept. Also, on the 4th,5th hole there was a random area cornered off and also at the 10th there was a small sign instructing us that 3 holes were unplayable.
Neither of these issues were mentioned to us upon booking or at the shop when collecting a score card.
To still be charged full price this time of year is crazy anyway, never mind when 5 holes are deemed unplayable.
Not one of the best days.
Perhaps unfair to be too critical as much recent rain made the course heavy-going, but tees were in poor condition & recently-tined greens made (my!) scoring difficult.
I found the course to be in good condition and the staff in the pro shop to be friendly. There were some juniors in front of us for the last 5 holes who held us up and the groups behind us apparently they we playing in a comp. it would have been nice if they had some supervision and perhaps let us all through. Other than that a great day.
Good allround course
Good course in good condition. Back 9 many fairways tree lined so straight driving a must. Not long but a good test of golf.
Great layout: tight driving course
This course is only 30 years old but the tree growth on this tight driving course makes it a real challenge. There are a few ponds and meandering streams that come in to play on may holes and accuracy off the tee is paramount to score well. While you generally always find a wayward tee shot, getting back into play is not easy and often results in a dropped shot. The course is often soft and damp and even after the long hot summer we have had, the greens were a bit soft underfoot and bumpy as a result. But well worth playing for between £20-25 visitor green fee.
Front 9 able to attack the course and make some scores. Fairways and greens excellent all the way round. Back 9 course gets its own back a bit. Tighter drives, water hazards, deep bunkers. Considering we have had such a hot summer the course was in very good nick and the greens immaculate. Staff very friendly. Members also welcoming. Only slight issue was a group of 3 jumped on the back nine just in front of us as we pulled up to the tenth tee so it messed the pace of play up for a bit but apart from that an excellent course and would definitely recommend.
Unfortunately the course struggled to cope with overnight rain and was boggy all the way round. Having checked the website before turning up it mentioned no buggies. We found that 6 holes were on really poor (amateurish) winter greens (badly placed on a couple) - The website late afternoon was updated to point this out - but we wouldn't have bothered had we known. Also, the 18th (Par 4) was having drainage work carried out and was set 150 yards forward making it a Par 3 distance effectively. The greens hadn't been cut for a while (I guess due to the conditions). A shame really as it looks a nice course - but with a Friend coming up from Essex to play had I known we would have booked elsewhere. Poor form that the Pro Shop didn't warn us.
Value for money
Played on a sunny Friday. Course in fine condition. Arrived early and had coffee from the kiosk on the patio. Enjoyed the round played at a reasonable pace. Course busy, but no waiting. Only hitch was that no hot food was available after 3pm. Great value for money with a ‘hot deal’.
Great layout, some pretty dramatic holes, with lots of nice elevation changes. Some narrow fairways, but also a few chances to open the shoulders up and smash one off the tee. The rough is very forgiving, probably the worst that could happen to an errant shot is find your line to the green blocked by a tree.
Greens had been treated and were very uneven, pace of play was dreadful due to a slow 4 balls poor on course etiquette.
Overall a stunning looking course in parts, would definitely play again.
Course is in excellent condition, pace can be a little slow but people are friendly and generally let you play through
