Superb course, very well maintained. Played in the pouring rain and wind but still enjoyed every hole. The 16th is a test for anyone, I would recommend giving it a go.

Really interesting course

Great course with some really interesting holes.Fairways and greens in great condition. Friendly staff in shop.

Only drawback was took 4 and half hours due to a charity event.

Had to wait at every hole but members were really helpful in talking us though the holes and where to play.

Definitely play again.

Hot weather

Little Things

A tough course that isn't very visitor friendly. We weren't made to welcome in the pro-shop, no card machine - cash only, they don't have any course guides (and on quite a number of holes it would be useful), there are no directions to the next tee boxes, including having to walk across a car park to the 8th, blind holes with no marker poles, and the general maintenance of the course around the tee boxes and greens could use some work.

It wouldn't take a lot to seriously improve the experience for players visiting for the first time.

Will play again

I was the first on the course quite early on weather was poor with drizzle course was in great condition and because of the rain greens slow. 2 par 3s in the first few holes was interesting. As the course opened up into gentle hilly gorse laden fairways it started to get interesting a lot of thought went into the course design and it got tougher hole by hole thoroughly enjoyable round despite the weather. Well equipped pro shop with fantastic deals and very friendly

Wet weather

Great condition

South Moor is a lovely golf course, challenging but rewarding and is in great condition considering recent weather the club pro Shaun was very friendly and helpful and the pro shop is excellent I could and probably will spend a fortune there.

All in all a great day I highly recommend.

Perfect weather

Probably the hardest course I've ever played in 30 years of playing golf.

Trees, Rough, gorse, this place has it all.

I played particularly badly, but still really enjoyed the experience.

I'd love to play it again, this time with a little less wind and with me playing a lot better.

Best advice I can give is: Be Straight, play percentages and you will return a good score

Poor Greens

Great lay out but the greens let it down, shocking for the time of year. Glad I'd getting a deal wouldn't of been happy paying full price.

But staff dead friendly, pro helpful & a well stocked pro shop.

great value-great course -friendly members and staff

first time at course -first few holes were a bit wet (due to amount of rain) but improved especially on the higher ground -plenty of trees -average golfer will enjoy it as the greens are in range with your second shot -def going back through teeofftimes! as we saved around 50%

Okay course

Okay course but very difficult underfoot. The fairways were very boggy due recent rain.
