In top condition despite the dry weather
Recommended. We played on a fine Sunday afternoon so the course was busy but we were still round in 4 1/4 hours.
Now mature and challenging
Haven’t played this course for some years. It has really matured. Very interesting and challenging holes. Certainly one I intend to play again.
Not an easy course for semi-beginners
Overall, had a good time at this course. As someone who has made a comeback to golf after not playing for 10 years, I found this course to be quite challenging. Due to the hilly location of the course, there were quite a few difficult shots made, with locations of a few greens being difficult to reach.
I wouldn't recommend it to those who are beginner/semi-beginner like myself, but I can imagine it to be quite enjoyable to those who are more confident with their shots and have more experience. Staff and general upkeep of the course were great. They may need to update some of their golf buggies, however.
A wonderful summer day's golf
Unlike the previous reviewer I only made it into 2 bunkers but there are many, many bunkers around this course so maintaining them all in perfect condition must be a considerable task. I have no complaints about the 2 bunkers I visited and I think that, as visitors, we have a responsibility to mention any problem we encounter to the pro or a passing grounds person.
My experience was excellent all round. Everyone (both staff and golfers) was friendly and had a smile on their face. The tee-boxes, fairways greens bunkers and rough were all in good condition. The course is very pretty, being set in a valley and the sloping valley sides cause sufficient problems on their own. Impressive, modern clubhouse. Recommended.
Let down by bunkers
I've been playing this course since it opened many many years back. There has always been a bit of an issue with the bunkers as I know the area suffers from flints (I used to live short distance away).
Today, the bunkers were ridiculous. OK I shouldn't have been in as many, but that aside, the condition in them was atrocious. No proper sand, just a thick red mud. And the number of stones, nay boulders, was ridiculous. Almost impossible to play out of without moving rocks or risk damaging your club. The par 3 15th, just in front of the clubhouse, had a rock in it big enough to start a rockery in your garden. Just no excuse for it.
And greens that had greenside bunkers were covered in stone chippings where players had splashed out.
Such a shame, as the greens and fairways were good (although I've seen the greens better over the years).
The tee boxes were in need of a cut too but manageable.
Very friendly welcome, course in good condiiton for time of year.
excellent golf course. always in great condition. greens are some of the best around. especially this time of year.
Well worth a visit
Have played this course a few times, pace of play was good for a Sunday afternoon, greens in great nick and fairways properly recovered from the parching June and July, moreso than other course in the area
Stunning little gem, tucked away in a secret valley
Great course. Well looked after. Nice greens. Friendly staff. A must play.
Had a great afternoon with friends, not a course for the faint hearted, very challenging in places.
As above. Greens were in good condition as were the fair ways. Really challenging course suitable for all levels of handicap. Staff are friendly and welcoming.
Great Value for money
Played this course for the first time with a few friends after finding a really good rate on tee off times. Course was in really good condition - maybe needs a better practice facility, but overall really happy for what we paid.
A nice day out
Course was good for a society day out.
Good condition. Greens slow and bunkers had stones in (only hit 2!)
Play was very slow as an 80 person society had a 2 tee start. We were warned but had already paid green fee with tee times.co.uk.
Have been playing here on and off for years, lovely course and generally very well kept. It has enough of challenge for the average golfer, maybe not so for a low handicap, but still has a few approaches not for the faint hearted. My only gripe is the pace of play at the weekends they do like to pack them in and maybe a little bit pricey compared to other courses of a similar nature. But on whole well worth a visit.
Cold but dry
Nice layout plenty of variations I would recommend good par fives and threes .
Good value for money, when its not busy
I find this course good value for money for what you get, however when i played the other day the course was particularly busy and i was playing on my own begind a slow four ball with seemingly no intention of letting through until i was on the green with them. I was looking for a course marshall to complain to but there was none around. Unfortunately after making my booking i had something else come up so i only had 3 hours to complete my round and get back home which for a single player should have been more than enough time but i had to leave after the 14th hole. As i say great course, good value for money but a lack of focus on speed of play and someone policing it.
Nothing more annoying then not being able to play at your own pace. I play in a 4ball regularly and get held up all the time and nobody lets you through anymore I'm not a stickler for etiquette but simple things like this wind me up lol just turns good golf into bad golf waiting 10 minutes on every shot. The worst are when they are putting seriously like pros on the green taking ages when you've seen them take 8 shots to the green. Might be playing here Saturday so fingers crossed we don't have the same problem
