Enjoyable round

This is a really nice course with a good amount of challenge over its 9 holes. Course condition is better than a lot of pricier courses. We enjoyed playing 18 holes and found the second time round the 9 holes was as enjoyable as the first.

Worth a trip

Good fun, great condition versus many others post winter. Solid 9 hole, easy walking and very friendly. Par 4s a little short to keep the low handicapper happy but full marks for making the most of what they have.

Will visit again soon.

Thanks for the hospitality!

A friendly and testing course

Lovely course set in the countryside. Testing par 5 to start then a selection of interesting holes requiring shot management or you can be in trouble. Well worth a visit.

Short but tricky.

Great facilities for practice before round. Short little course but tricky. Greens were great and tough to read. Never had a straight putt all day which I love.
Pace of play a bit slow due to the shortness of some par fours and long par three's.
