We enjoyed playing this course very much, it is does not have steep hills. The fairways were suffering from the dry conditions with wide cracks throughout the course. The water hazards were also dry. These conditions are not limited to the course as the rest of Somerset is also suffering from the dry conditions.
Played here for the first time, teeing off at 1500. I'm not a good golfer, but found the course to be enjoyable. Better golfers would find the course unchallenging, I think, but for me it was about right. Could do with more water hazards, and the bunkers are not placed to cause much difficulty. The pro shop staff were very friendly, but the club hire was expensive at £15 for a set of mostly mix and match clubs. Rounds are cheaper after 1400 and cheaper still after 1600, at £16 and £14 respectively, which I think is good value. Clubhouse staff were extremely friendly. We didn't eat, but the food others had looked (and smelt) very good! Would definitely play again.
Played a 2 ball for first time at this course. Greens recently treated so lots of sand which slowed the speed. Overall course was in good condition with some tricky holes requiring some thought!!!
Will happily return for another round
