Great course, friendly atmosphere
Everything was perfect, especially the pace of play was great.
Arrived, friendly staff in pro shop....as were staff in bar area. First time playing this course. Rained for first 9 holes, and felt had to take care in areas that appeared slippy, because there was no grass in large areas, due to the hot summer that had burnt the fairways......grass needs to recover. Greens were nice, and run true, with some tricky contours on some of the greens. Struggled at times to establish if on the fairway or edge of rough.....we were only playing a friendly game, so didn't mean too much.
Quirky in places which added character to holes and course........the humps in the fairways,, from mining, I think, are certainly different. A couple of good drives ended up on downhill lies, so some fairways you are hands of the gods.
Don't be too clever on the 17th, or you may ruin a good round and find the pond......send the drive a bit right. The last hole was disappointing, probably the worst hole on the course. Would I recommend playing there...yes definitely. Played for £18, about midday. Course quite as "vets" had a match a bit later and rain probably put a few off.
Looking forward to revisit at end of month, with our golf society. If you haven't played before, a course planner or golf watch may help, as you will not see hidden dips before some of the greens
Fantastic shaped fairways
Really enjoyed my round despite having to wait quite a bit all round the course. Excellent condition despite very long dry spell and intriguing shapes and bumps on some fairways made this a really great experience. Very friendly members and nice atmosphere all round
Could not have been better great course in fantastic condition. We are 2 male players came up behind 2 groups of 4 ladies and they waved us through so etiquette was spot on

We were made very welcome by the Pro. The course was in very good condition particularly the greens. We teed off at 12:04 on a Thursday and paid £14 each for a three ball which is excellent value. Play was slow over last four holes due to a society playing ahead of us. Thoroughly recommended.
