Too many very poor temporary greens

We read a September review saying that there were only a few temporary greens but unfortunately this wasn’t the case. The temporary greens were extremely poor and combined with the foreshortened holes spoiled far too many holes. Disappointing as the course in general is nice and the staff friendly.

18 Temporary greens - well holes in the fairway

Played the course numerous times over the years, but it has clearly seen major neglect recently.
Dry as a bone, 18 temporary greens - if you can even call them that, literally no point in even attempting to putt. Absolutely abysmal condition currently.

All greens closed!

Having booked through golf now we paid the full geen fees. When we arrived at the course the pro advised us that all of the greens are dead!

If we would have know this was the case we would have booked somewhere else.

The pro advised that had we booked on the course web site we Would have paid 50% less on the green fees due to the state of the course.

Obviously Golf Now are not aware of the current problems on the course.

The pro couldn’t offer us a refund because we paid through Golf Now.

Without the problem it would be a hood golf course apart from the dog walkers an cyclists that regularly appears cutting across the fairways.

Bit of a swizz!

I'm not normally a complainer. I really like this course and have played it many times. the Golf Now app took my money and I turned up for my round after driving for 75 minutes. the pro sjop chap said that we'd have to play the 1st 9 twice as the greens were under repair on the back nine. OK fair enough. but it turned out that ALL the greens were being repaired - not even temporary greens - just a hole somewhere in the fairway. we played anyway but felt that taking the full price for the greenfee was a bit rich as the course was not in any sort of playable condition. Really good course but I felt cheated on this occasion.

slightly hilly, yardtage approx under 6000yds with some tricky holes

course layout is tidy and reasonably maintained. It is an ideal course to play especially in winter time.

Nice Setting, poor facilities

Really nice woody setting here, course can be a bit repetitive. Had many dog walkers, walking across the hole while you are about to take your tee shot. I definitely would not play here again, unless the price to pay (£25) was lowered to about £5, absolutely ludicrous for a course that poor

Fair price. Course still suffering from heavy Rains in the last month

Some good holes. Overall condition suffers from the rains over the last month. Despite a dry week the course was still very wet which made the price fair.

Unforgiving but great course

Really enjoyed the round. Bargain 3-ball price. Pretty narrow fairways mostly, so unforgiving if your drive is a little wayward but I'm used to playing on the South Downs. Very pretty here. Decent bacon sandwich for brekkie and decent cheeseburger for lunch.

Slow play

To be honest the course is ok I played on my own and it took 6 hours to get round. No course martial in place to move flow play. To me all they wanted was as much income as possible so they just loaded the tee times. On theee holes I had three groups in front of me on the same hole. Not funny to be honest.

Good Value for Money.

Ideal course to work off a hangover with nice scenery.

Maintenance needed on a few of the holes, mainly the green. Other than that, this place is a bargain (the beer is decent too).

Ideal for all weathers, but strong grips would be needed on wet days as there are some considerable slopes. Quite a few trees in the centre of a few fairways which makes for an interesting obstacle. Overall I'd give it 4 stars, maybe 5with a little TLC.
