Booked a round did not get one
I booked this tee at 7am website said course fully open . So paid the £42 for a 2 ball . Took 1 hour to arrive expecting a great day after reading about the course .
It was a cold morning and ground was hard but no frost on surface . We went in to pro shop the pro was very polite . I asked how the course was he said great which is how it looked . He then told us that all greens were closed until an inspection at 11am which never happened. We proceeded to play only to find no course info on tee boxes . Par 5s were shortened to one of them 280 yards and the holes dug in fairway where terrible . We got to the 8th hole par 3 which was completely closed . We then went to next tee at side of 8th again no hole info . We played the hole only to find out it was the 18th . I went in to pro shop again to ask where the 9th was lol . The pro then said all 4 par 3s were shut. We then walked to 9th and played on . Now I understand it is January and course conditions change day to day . But I booked this for a change and ended up hitting balls in a field for 14 holes . We even drove back to our little club hanging heaton so we could have a go at hitting to a green . Basically we did not get the product service we expected .
Course with greate layout
The layout of this course is very impressive with all the holes unique. the par 3s the highlight of the course. I only found 1 green for a second with my tee shots, as the ball rolled back into a bunker. We teed off behind a 4 ball, looked like we were in for a slow round (we were a 2 ball) at the second tee the 4 members let us through. We completed our round in 3 hours 20! I scored 34 points. I really enjoyed this course, the club house was friendly, the practise facilities looked good (not used)
Over all I was very impressed and look forward to a return visit.
First time visitor and it won't be the last.
Was a little worried as we had a night of rain the previous night you wouldn't have known.
Had a putt on the practice greens and commented on good it was, the greens on the course were even better - better than most greens I've played on during the summer. True, good pin positions and cut perfectly.
The course is set up fantastically with a great variation of holes, beautifully tree lined and very well positioned bunkers (all full of deep sand similar to a dried out summer bunker). Testing par 3's, playable par 4's and some visually amazing par 5's. Can't rate this course high enough.
Clubhouse was very welcoming too and busy for a Sunday afternoon.
All in all an amazing visit, would highly recommend and will be back in the summer if we can get a good deal.
