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.

It's very open

Probably not the best time of the year to review any course. No course looks and plays well during winter. Had previously played here about 3 years ago.

The course is parkland, with wide fairways and holes are parallel in some cases and always close together.

It is good course for high or intermediate handicap players as hitting your ball off line usually results in little real trouble. Often your ball lands on another fairway anyway!

I like the fact that hole 1 is a par 3 and relatively easy.

You don't want to start with a difficult hole and run up a stupid score.

The fairways are OK rather than good and the greens are very flat but were in good condition.

My only real issue would be if the course was busy then there is a possibility of being hit by stray shots as the holes are close together.

Overall I would suggest you play here once and then decide if it is a course you want to revisit.

Wasted potential

On arrival, the course looked pleasant enough, however the greens were so slow that even a child could putt on them. The fairways were so cloddy that it was hard to get an even contact on the ball without a muddy divot. Obviously, the green keeper lacks the experience/training required to work on a golf course.

The clubhouse is architecturally pleasant, built in 1935, however the original Crittal windows were very evident and the whole premises are very run down, obviously in need of a major upgrade. The toilets are particularly unpleasant and smelly.

Judging by the popularity of the venue, it is sad that this council run golf course isn't ploughing money back into this facility which has huge potential.
