Awful condition.

I expected the course to still be recovering from the lack of care during Covid. But fair to say the course is currently a field with slightly shorter grass on what use to be greens.
Management still sending groups out at 7 min intervals and waited on every tee and every second shot.
Course currently has no fairways as everything has been cut at 2nd cut rough length. So no run on the ball and we reverted to pick and place.
Avoid at all costs pending the a return to proper care and maintaince.

Twilight round

Love the course but have issues with the SI of some of the holes. The 15 in particular is near impossible To hit in two as is the 7,14 &12!
Greens were not in great condition but as you’d expect them to be post lockdown

Very good

I can be put off by the word “municipal” but this was a very pleasant surprise. My only criticisms would be the fairway grass been a little long in places and the greens needing a bit of work. But taking into account the lockdown we’ve just experienced I suppose everything has been affected, even golf courses!
I look forward to playing here again

Winter golf

The course is unplayable during the winter. Not worth the time of effort. It should shut between November and February to get the course in good condition before the prime months. The course layout is interesting and the setting was nice, I imagine is a decent course during summer conditions

Lovely in summer, avoid in winter

Played this course a few times & really like it, but played it today & it really shouldn’t have been open. Temp tees & greens on every hole & standing water in many places. The temp greens were unusable, didn’t even bother getting my putter out.
Is a great course & very friendly staff & guests, but wish they’d just told us it was so boggy.

Mature parkland course with excellent greens

For a municipal golf course, this really is excellent. A well established parkland course with wide tree lined fairways and some interesting short holes. Although the fairways are a little patchy in places (not helped by the recent dry weather), the greens were in really excellent condition. The clubhouse is old fashioned but very friendly offering reasonably priced meals. Well worth a visit.

Great

Course was in great condition. Greens were superb. Rough was ok but as grass was just cut a lot of dead grass laying around, so no chance of finding ya ball if it went in there. But over all a course we play on a regular basis because it's a good all round course.

Poorly maintained

11th & 12th weren't cut in a while. Spent ages looking for my ball which landed on the fairway amongst the long grass and daisies. Would never play this when being charged the premium price.
