Disappointed this time

Having played this course a number of times I was a bit disappointed with the condition of both the tee boxes & particularly the greens on this occasion. Despite the recent rain, the greens were rock hard & pitted quite badly, they need some serious TLC. Similarly the tee boxes were tatty, although I would suggest players should be more considerate, the replacement of divots does not only apply to the fairways!?
On the plus side, the staff & members are really friendly & the layout of the course is very good for the average golfer, although low handicappers would probably find it easy.
hopefully they can sort out the condition of the course & I will be back in flash.

Good practice venu

In the week this is a quite quiet course you can get time to tidy up you game.

The quality of the course is fine with true greens and sme long fairways.

Well kept, full length course.

Really enjoyed our first experience of this course with great weather on the bank holiday. Next time will be better as we will then know the layout. My golf partner was able to hire a pair of shoes as he had left his behind. This was invaluable as in a few parts just s few feet off the fairway it was quite boggy. Most holes were quite open and so forgiving to wayward drives. Will be recommending this course to my friends.

Decent track in fair condition for the time of year

The weather had been bad recently and the course held a lot of water. Boggy on the fairways but the greens and tee boxes were in decent condition. You couldn't tell where the fairway stopped and rough began. To be expected though due to the recent wet weather.
Good mixture of holes and I like the fact that I could use my driver on nearly all the holes bar the 3s. Would play again once the weather is a bit better and the course dried out.

Nice

If you want an open but challenging course this is good. Greens needed a little work and slow speed but couldn't fault it for a first time

Poor attendance to course

required tee box cutting on all tee boxes. Fair ways needed cutting .
Greens needed attention as had mud slicks and wheel marks from lawnMowers.
Golfers not dressed correctly. I.e. Tracksuit bottoms , 3 quarter length trousers
Bins full rubbish not emptied in days.

Shame as course has real potential if a little time is taken on course prep.

Will not be returning anytime soon.

Over all the course was good, some nice holes and Generally well maintained. Unfortunately, what let it down were the greens which were very spongy and a bit mossy. There had been a lot of rainfall the previous day which would have contributed. But due to inconsiderate golfers, they were also damaged with lots of pitch marks. I reckon i repaired 4-5 every green but there were obviously others marks that were older and would need proper attention.
I did enjoy the round very much and would play there again its just a shame when players don't respect the facilities.
Would suit players with a higher handicap

good value for money

Booked a hot deal at £14 plus admin fee for 2 . We teed off at 1pm on a sunny Friday afternoon and we were not held up or a four ball played in the group behind and it didnt seem busy . The course was in generally in good condition apart from the bunkers which were not well maintained . The course is fairly flat and the fairways are generous the rough was not too penal. Greens were a bit patchy in places but the ball rain fairly true.
The clubhouse is basic as it is constructed from portacabins but the service from both the pro and steward was very good . The practice range is very near the car park. One negative was that the tee mats are all very worn and detract from the enjoyment and in need of replacement.
We didn't see a short game area but the putting green is near the first tee and there appears to be another practice area located near the second tee. The car park was nearly empty when we finished our round which suggests the course is less busy in the afternoons . I understand from others that drainage can be a problem in the winter so perhaps it is best to play this course in the summer. If you are looking for a nice away day then you could do a lot worse than play this course
