First Time Playing

Great Course.

First time I played this Course went here on a last minute round. Course was a little wet in areas but nothing that was un-playable. Greens was in good condition for time of year and pace wasn’t too off. Tee boxes could of done with a trim some quite over grown and presentation of them could of been better. Bunkers was all good depth of sand can’t complain.
Staff was pleasant and friendly. Would recommend this course to anyone. Especially anyone in the military as they do discount and makes it an absolute bargain for the facility.

Overall great course, testing holes and extremely enjoyable.

Course in poor condition

Course was in generally poor condition. Patchy fairways, bunkers were full of weeds and the greens on some of the holes were unplayable. I understand the pressures facing businesses in the post-lockdown era, but there is simply no excuse for charging £29 for a round of golf when the course is in such terrible condition (see photos).

Poor condition

Played this course today. The greens were genuinely awful. The bunkers were unplayable, with weeds and bushes growing out of them. A real shame as has a lot of potential

Played here three times since lockdown, and the condition of the course was a lot better! Greens still need a bit of work but general pretty good. We played in a four ball and all really enjoyed the course, the layout out the course is fantastic. Some very good holes. Only disappointment was that you have to pre book bacon rolls if your in a group, but other than that it was a brilliant day. Will be definitely playing there some more.

I have played this course many times and normally in very good condition and staff are normally friendly. However this time arrival to the pro shop to book in, the guy on the counter was on his phone and did not acknowledge me for a couple of minutes. Once we were on the course the fairways were in pretty good condition but the greens were in a very poor state with brown patches all over the place and hardly any green grass. Was a very disappointing round, don’t think I’ll be playing again for awhile.

Vastly improved

There have been some negative reviews of the courses recently.... The greens staff have worked very hard and the improvement is tangible... far better than 3 weeks ago. Bunkers still not in play and no club house facilities but these are being worked on....

Awful

The course have had the greenkeepers furloughed and still charge full price. Awful to play and won’t be back, a real shame as played before and enjoyed

Nice course but a bit of a let down

Really friendly staff, but very disappointed not to be able to get a quick beer after the game, only members and a golf society apparently . Though it was bad that two guys couldn’t have a quick drink on a hot day before leaving.

Course was nice, but let down by no maintenance on bunkers , with grass and weeds growing out of them all, along with most tees very barren and desperate for water. A few of the greens also were quite barren and just needed maintenance . Having said that the fairways were good and overall had a pleasant round.

Would have been fuming had I paid more for the round due to the lack of maintenance
